Yes indeed - will be transporting it cross country - Of course now I am completely flummoxed as I have been dreaming that I would be the only one at the car show - and now there are two - and both the same colour! sheesh.

Seriously I am thrilled to have a neighbour to compare notes

Hi, these cars are a little different than the English ones. There were only 1970 models. Firstly the stripe went down the guard at the front.
Also they had a black bonnet, side markers front and rear, dual brake boosters, Head rests, sl trim, twin headlights, reversing lights vertically mounted, trim around the window was painted, left handed steering, Extra bumper bar bolted to cross member under front, no gt badges on rear gaurds, also have hc indicators and were sold under the Chev dealerships as a Epic gt. Some say Chevrolet epic gts. These are a reasonably rear car which i are restoring at the moment.

Wouldn't it be lovely to be able to just give it a coat of oil and leave it as it is....

It's great that you have this ultra rare car JDC. Could you please post up some more pictures? We would all love to see it.

(it's a bit of pain on this forum but most pictures have to be resized down to 800 x 600 pixels before they can be posted)
