    OK,
    We are starting on the car so I figured I would post some pics. Here are some that Jimmy took in 2003.

    Now that I fixed some "technical" problems, here are a few more pics.
    We assembled the chassis in a few hours. It was easy because Billy brought his friends over and all the parts were ready. Then Nick put the body back on the frame and we loaded it on the trailer.
    Nick from Ivyland Collision will be doing the resto.

    Also pictured here are all the Original 1969 4-speed Linkage, back-drive and shifter. A big thanks to Jason Cook and Rich & Tim Garland. The only thing missing from this is the Handle, which James Weinman is sending me.

    Thanks for the pics! Now I can inventory the stuff for my stick car, LOL. Those Hurst wheels look awesome on that car by the way...

    Super excited for this, Duane. Nick will do a knockout job, no doubt.

    Can't remember from the other thread what shape the body is in, but if you need, I have a very nice rust-free '69 OE pass. floor (incl. Firewall/saddle bags/rockers) and '69 trunk floor. Also a handful of NOS '69 parts. Other than a speedometer and a pair of front marker lenses, not sure what's there - Some was/is Sportwagon specific.

    What color is it? Blue Mist, or aqua?

    Just painted my 69 Today. Last one for me, too much time and work.

    That Motion car is going to be really neat!

    Dano,
    The body is in very good shape, floors are good as is the trunk. It has a spot of rust at the back corners of the rear window, and another small spot on 1 rear quarter behind the wheel. There was also some rust behind the chrome piece on the bottom of the front window, but that's it. Both front fenders are from Arizona, and the Hood and trunk lid we are using are very nice. Core support is from out west and is done. Other then a patch for the passenger side inner fender the sheet metal has been taken care of.

    Nick & I picked up almost everything today. There is only a couple of pieces left. I swapped him a bunch of parts I had cleaned and he gave me more to do.

    The only things we don't remember finding are the vinyl top die cast corners, and the outside driver side remote mirror. They were beautiful used pieces from California and were in a box together, but we don't know where we put it.

    If we can't find them then we will need some replacements pretty fast.

    Adam,
    Picked up the front wheel well moldings today, and they look real nice. (They were on the original front clip.) You should be getting a care package very soon, and thanks for the help.

    Minimal body work is excellent! I'm sure (hope anyway) that you'll find that box. All my corners are '70-72 (I think). Fred might have an NOS mirror. Did the car come with a dealer installed right side mirror? Seems like something Motion would've wanted.

    Sounds like this one could be done in relatively short order if Nick isn't too backed up and being a '69 Motion GS he might even bump it up:). Tell him I said Hi. You're going to need a bigger garage:).

    Tom,
    The car is a light blue metallic with a blue bucket seat interior. I think they call it Crystal blue.
    Love the turquoise color of your car.
