    Oh the Stage 1 is saveable, the other one not so much.

    Thanks for the encouragement everybody, I'm planning on a trip to see the cars on Sunday. It's a 4.5 hour drive from Atwood, KS. to Gresham, Nebraska and I'm ready for a road trip! The owner said 2 different out of state buyers came to look at them and passed, so tell me guys [ pm me] how bad does the metal look on the Stage car? Thanks, Larry.

    Yes, if anyone has seen the cars you might add respectful comments. I'm in Iowa, not too far away. I guess my curiosity would be completeness. I would want all of the Stage 1 parts to start with and not be hunting.

    The Stage car will need quarterpanel and outer wheelhouse repair. The rest of the car is reasonably solid. I could not find the XS code on the deck. I do not believe it is the original engine. I did not jack it up to check trans number. The carb and dist are not stage 1 parts. It is a V code 4 speed car, no doubt. Only options I could tell were 4 spd, tilt and bucket seats.

    Original shifter is there. Pretty much a complete car that needs a complete resto.
    I think it needs to be saved. 1 of 92. But not by me. I have enough projects to do until I'm way beyond dead. LOL.
    The second car is a GS350 car with a 455 in it, not even a decent parts car in my opinion. Really rusty throughout.

    Hey Mike was the quarter panels equally bad on both sides? Also, how's the rocker panels and front fenders look? Thanks for your input. Larry.

    Since the original seller-poster has generally not come back on, if anyone gets more photos it would be good to see more than what was posted. These cars have obviously been in the same spot for years judging from the sink in of the right front rim. Major job extracting them. Did I miss it - is this a disc brake car? I would think by 1973 it would be a disc brake car.

    All Colonnade cars (73-77 A body) were Disc Brake from factory. Do not know if all were power brake.

    All disc brake cars in 73 but power was an option.

    It’s a power brake, power steering, tilt, non air 4 speed, non numbers matching possibly, low mileage car as far as I know, and brown.

    Yes they were. Rockers and fenders were decent.

    No, our trip planned last Sunday was cancelled due to mechanical issues on my '07 Duramax, it's fixed now, and I just got off the phone with the seller. I'm driving there this Saturday to check out the cars. :D Larry.
