    Actually, i know a guy who had a '72 El Camino SS 454 when it was new. Sold it in the later '70s then found it 25+ years later and bought from that owner. Original engine was gone but the car was salvageable. I haven't seen him in some years, but he was in the midst of doing a body off frame restoration but I never saw the finished product.

    This just pisses me off typing this. Guy I knew had a 67 Corvette coupe. Marlboro Maroon. 427/435 4sp. factory side pipes, knock off wheels, the ultimate to me. Sold it when times got tough. When things got better, he found the motor (complete) and bought it. Then he actually found the car! Son owns a chassis shop and it sat there for years unassembled. The car needed painted, but it was still nice and all there. He said he would never sell it. Well he just passed a couple years ago and his son inherited it and sold it. Didn't even put it together.

    The son should have put that car together for his dad to enjoy before he passed. Such a shame to hear a story like this.

    But for what that car was/is worth it was probably a no-brainer.

    Yeah , very wealthy people , like Poppa John the pizza king , who can offer a reward of huge money , that people will pay attention and seriously want to get involved.
    Yeah offer like a 25K published in lots of major cities it might have been last known ….and people s brains will get turned on. ….or pay private investigator…..either way when doing this type of hunting , it helps to be rich …lol

    Hi
    Hey Steve, if you are serious about the opportunity of owning another one I have a sliver/black 4 spd I am “considering” selling. Pretty much a survivor car, 1 repaint, complete numbers match car, original panels, exhaust and would consider it a strong number #2 car. Let me know what you think I’m in Canada.
