Yep- that's it. If I had to have one car, a '70 vert on an RS chassis would be it. That checks all boxes for me. Great job.

Rick,...you nailed it bro.
I love the "almost 100% completely stock" exterior with a killer interior and updated driveline and brakes.
Awesome car.

What were the final wheel & tire sizes? If I recall it had an 18/20 combo?

Where was this hiding at GG's? I must've been busy lusting over the chassis that were on display.

At what point during this incredible metal work do you think this guy thought to himself..."Yup, I think its ready for paint!" It is amazing how something that looked as good as the original car, could end up like this. We looked the car over pretty well before disassembly and had no idea of what laid underneath.



What was left of the wheel opening and outer wheel house.


There wasn't a wave, a bubble, a sand scratch, a shrinkage mark... nothing anywhere in this quarter. the trim fit nicely all around the convertible top... no signs of what was underneath. Oh well, nothing that an entire parts catalog can't fix!
My worst fear realized. I'm in the shopping phase for a 66 or 67 Chevelle and I'm not expecting miracles or deal of the year, but avoiding this is what we all try to do. That is some amazing mud work, that's for sure.
As usual, you made a work of art out of it. You are amazing chef's to make such a salad from such **t.
