Obviously the first picture is a "reference" picture of what the car used to look like (if legit). I don't think the price for the condition the project sits now is too far fetched.

Ad said it's missing the O.A. so you have to add that to the total. If you need someone to take a peak at it, let me know! It's roughly a 20-30 minutes from me.

Definitely a vehicle of potential interest that a perspective buyer SHOULD see in person before making a deal to purchase... Point to consider is the OAI Hood and additional extra parts are an added cost to the $7500... Also, if I understood the ad correctly, it is a "Cutlass" Pace Car, not a 442 Pace Car and whether or not this would lower the overall value upon completion of a restoration may be questionable by some, But still definitely a piece of limited Olds history if a documented original...
