The registry indicates that this beauty was once owned by a Robert Gaines in the 90's. Was it still a mangled parts car at the time or was it a cube already?

The Art Institute of Chicago should buy it for display.  I've seen far worse where artwork displays are concerned.  This one has some artistic value to it.  Maybe a story behind it as well.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

It shows to be a prior to Feb. 21 production, due to quarter reflectors.  Anyone have the Marti?

My guess is that tie rod end won't have a B stamped.

Definitely Mustangs Unlimited in CT. I recognize that heap having been to a few Sunday Show of Shelbys events over the past few years.
