The interior is in progress and will be finished. The car came with Canyon Red interior and is being converted over to the Gray:

The engine is original and still runs good. Never been rebuilt but probably needs it.

You had a red interior and went gray... and upgraded your brakes on the front but stayed 4-lug...

I don't understand you. :nonono:

That said, the finished product is easily the king of the $7k thread and probably worth even more.

It's not mine. I might have kept the Canyon Red if and only [if] (we both know that doesn't exist) it could be replaced with Canyon Red.

The front brakes are about keeping the 10-holes and improving street braking.

Are you thinking about buying it or just asking for a friend? Its a nice looking car. I'd say it was worth 10 or 11, but thats just a guess. If the motor was rebuild it sould easily fetch those numbers.

I am prospecting. :chin


Even as a roller, I'm thinking this resto is worth more. All new cloth interior, seat foam... The works. The paint isn't OEM quality, it's Concourse Show quality.

I bought TMI Canyon Red upholstery for my ‘86 GT.

What's a good estimate for the bodywork and paint? All C-pillar lead removed, base, and 3 coats of clear?
Hummmmm........

Lead being removed doesn’t mean much unless it was rusting underneath. If it’s not broke, why are you fixing it? Lead isn’t a bad thing other than those pesky health issues.

I don’t really know the quality of the work done just by pictures. Cost can range from $6k to the sky depending on what and how it was done. Based on the hood repair it wasn’t the “high“ end.

Was the car completely blown apart for the paint?

I’m a little confused about what you’re asking me. What’s the seller want for the car? Does their price seem to good to be true? If it does, you can already guess my opinion on that.

Paint wise, I don’t have enough information to really say how much it would cost. Pictures are deceptive as hell and don’t tell the whole story.

A $15k paint job from me is fully worth $15k. From another fella, it may be worth $5k.

Sorry to be so vague there Noobz. There’s a lot of bastards out there that think they are great painters/restorers.
