    Where in the us are you located. I would buy it just for the grill moulding :D
    Looks like a good 72. but what about rust, looks like it has some issues on the lower part of the drivers door.
    And what are you asking if it is for sale.

    Anyone have a good grill moulding for sale, has 2 with some dings already???
    Also need a C6 tranny in good shape.
    Has a Fl adress where to ship.:cool:

    Using the Rib Crib website to get the address, followed by Google Earth Street view map, I have determined that is exactly where that picture was taken, Watson.

    Rib Crib any good? Never heard of them.

    Yes, not bad. They started out in Tulsa. They have quite few stores located around here, and have been expanding the last few years. Not national though.

    yep its at the rib crib in claremore.picked it up on the north side of town.its where i find all my ranchero's. the one i had years ago that was a Q code 4 speed car came from there to.
    thinking i'm going to get a marti report for it.

    Giska1 don't know on a price yet had one in mind but its changing as i've got it running and going to install a master cyl today and new fuel pump so i can drive it around.

    What is rollerizing, and the C6 is for my BabyBlue 72 mine has only 49' orig miles but I think it thats why it whent bad. the oil looks like its dirt in it and it does not move anymore.
    Been looking on some trannies that will manage my oncoming 557cui 650 hp
    engine. They need about 1000$ for them.
    At the moment there are the orig 400 in BabyBlue 72.
    And I know that the 429/460 are the same boltpattern.
    What do you have that I might use:confused::cool:

    well drove it around the block.runs well and shifts good still need to bleed the brakes some more but so far so good.while i had it up on the lift i found more rust than i thought it had.in the rear of the floors under the bed.it may be more than i am wanting to do.but we'll see.

    Giska1 send me an email at
    jwq66@sbcglobal.net and i'll send ya some links on c6's.mine was fine around 950 hp to the ground so 650 should be no problem.and i've got 5 or 6 laying around

    They should stay with the car for sure - adds to "documentation" that a lot of folks like to have when they get a classic. Good find!

    That car was a very late build in the 1972 Model year - probably one of the last to roll off the assembly line before the change over to the 1973 model year.

    That all helps, especially if the car is brought back to show status

    I wish I had all that stuff. I would like to know what the stero book says, never seen one before.

    Nice find. The glove box contents only matter if you plan to compete at the national concourse level. If you just want a truck you can enjoy to drive, sell them for big bucks to someone who plans to compete.

    Only exception, is that if the owners card matches your truck, it should be kept with the truck.
