I have the car home, it has rusty floors from wet carpet but torque boxs and frame rails all solid, I will try to post pics, I will get a Marty and do a vin verification to get a clear title, all the interior was there but front seats, has vin on front apron and dash all glass except door windows, that is how the water got in

Finally cleaned out car,almost like an archeologist hunt, luckily the rust is contained to the front of seats on both sides, found valves from the 428 some burnt exhaust valves, car shows 22k on speedometer found ca plate with the last tag of 1980, looks like they were planing or running a SB, rug aw 4spd close ratio, 9" is not the n but I have a extra, looks like the driver side 1/4 was also replaced,tach in dash 4spd peddles, I need to get Marty to see what it was from day 1, Pete

Great photos - Interesting that the air scoops on the quarter panels have been blocked in like a '70.
Big resto project but glad you got it.

It is a 1970, Marty report should be here in a week or so, the wasps were not happy about there home relocation

yeah - you're right, noticed the VIN in the original post! D'oh!

Did that car used to be under  the roof line of the shed/barn, and the shed and its roof has disappeared?

The Marty shows 428 CJ , and the 428 scj drag pack, but the radiator support does not show both horns mounted on passenger side, also there were some parts in the car and the oil filter adapter is the CJ version,not the oil cooler type, once I have the clean title it may go up for sale ,
I just looked again and there is the hole for oil cooler line unde twist in hood pin and 2 holes on passenger side for horn, so it looks to be a 428 SCJ 4spd drag pack car

Wow!, very rare and a cool find. Love the pictures of it hiding in the tall grass, with no real road to speak of. How did you even come across this thing?
We're all glad to see that it's back in the game and can't wait to hear what will happen next.
