James Stafford's 72 442 W-30 Post Coupe

This car is only one of 19 produced in 72. The vin number is 3G77X2M122133. If anyone has any history on this car I would like to here from you. The only history I have is the car was bought from a junk yard in Auburn Alabama in the condition in this picture.

It was then sold to the owner of J and D Restoration in Huntsville Al. for around $1000. He in turn removed the body from the frame and replaced it with a straight one from a 72 442 donor car. He replaced all the front suspension and sheet metal. Then he went on to other projects. This is the state that I received the car in.

I removed the front cap and doors getting ready for a frame off touch up when the car project died for about 2 years. Then I found some time to get back at it and this is where it is know.

Future projections: Winter 98, finish engine except accessories. Spring 99, finish sheet metal and body work. Summer 99, paint and detail undercarriage install engine and trans. Fall 99, watertight the interior and trunk section of the car. After that, I will have to catch up on money but I will update pictures then.
