    It looks like a very nice car from the pictures, but there appear to be some issues with details. I imagine the price will be ridiculous ( the 70 Z sold but not the Hurst sunshine edition car) interesting stuff .

    I am 99% sure that is the same car that sold on Yenko.net in 2008. Then it went to Mershon's where it sat for a while. Regardless, it looks like nothing was done to it since. Heh, "proper SS wheels". Both Mershon's and Legendary have the same comment, interesting.

    This car needs an owner like Darren and not to be bouncing around from dealer to dealer. If someone like Darren owned this car, everything that's wrong would be corrected and the car would be much more desirable and worth alot more IMO.

    Thanks Randy, but I think you have it a bit backwards. Seems I have the knack for depreciating cars. :)

    I think the steering wheel may just be in a turned position..... You can see that most of the sellers photos have the front wheels turned. It appears to have standard gauges..... The U14 gauges was an option, not a requirement. Thou most L78 cars did have the U14 gauge package..... few did not.


    Not trying to validate or discredit this car as I know very little about it..... While it may have been an L78 at one time? It is missing many important items! Very nice looking car thou:bowtie: Has any one ever seen this car in person??
