What you've uncovered so far looks great. Any soft spots detected under the Cordova top?

Top has a few silver dollar size bubbling spots
Nothing I am too concerned about
I hope to have 80% of the car stripped to bare metal this weekend and I will know more for sure

That's good. Someone had done a good job of hiding it on mine but I wound up replacing practically the entire roof when I stripped it down.

Fast forward to last week and I spot a 67 GTO in the backyard of a house a mile away.
It wasnít really for sale but after a quick chat with the owner we made a very fair deal for us both of us.
Picked this up today and will begin another frame off restoration similar to my 2 past threads on here.
The car is 100% complete and original with 30k documented miles
Itís my therapy and love this stuff
Any pictures of that tyrol blue goat? I have the same car that I'm finishing up after a 462 swap. I couldn't imagine parting with it. But a nice big garage sounds great too lol

Wonderful that you're on to #3! I'm sure this one will be just as gorgeous!

If you've decided to retain the S-2 combo, I'll throw in a vote to keep the strato-bench and column shift too. Kind of goes with the aesthetic (vinyl top, and can I assume A/C, several power options?).

I have both bench and buckets, column and floor shift, auto and manual cars. I love all of them for varying reasons. Seems to me it would be fun to keep it 100% original if you're committed to the S-2 path.

Just my 2 cents.
