diamond in the rough?

hey everyone im a 18 year old ford lover that had a 84 5.0 mustang, now 2 sho's, love em, anyway i was out at my friends farm witch is '64 galaxie heavan and i came across a 1966 hardtop among all the other galaxies in the field, making sure the numbers on the door matched the body i took the numbers down and came up with 6W61Q128497, going on the internet that night i learn that the "Q" means 7 litre 428 4v, there's no engine or trans, but a complete restorable rolling shell and most interior, is this car worth pulling out of the weeds? or is this car not worth anything? 345 factory horse gets a guys curiosity going, thanks for the help!!

Re: diamond in the rough?

I dont know the numbers, but if its that rare, I bet someone would snap it up- if its got a title anyways...would imagine sitting in a field rotted the frame, unless that was the original reason it wound up there, but if all the tags and any special 7 litre parts are still there, someone might want it even just to piece together one down the road...saw a few years back, a guy found a 69 cougar cowl/partial clip- with a vin tag and title...with a extremely rare engine code...dunno if it was Z or X or whatever, but there were only 2 holman-moody prepped boss429 1969 cougars built, and somebody bought the title and enough tin to rebuild one from for near nothing. Dont seem right to do such a thing, but to some documentation is more important than anything else...good luck- in any event, tell the guy he really ought to do something good with these old cars- sad to hear of rare parts rotting away when surely someone could use them.

Re: diamond in the rough?

If that is in deed a 7 liter, go for it. I think that all the 7 Liters had bucket seats in them, are they still there?

a title? you need a title for a car thats almost 40 years old in ohio? if so that sucks, here in nh if its older than 15 you dont need the title, just need an old registration or a state trooper/state inspector to fill out a paper that verifies the vin. the registry doesnt even look at the paper i noticed, maybe someone down the line does, dunno. as long as they give me a registration and plates i dont care

Re: diamond in the rough?

Sounds like a real 7 litre, I would take it. Here in Oregon you can go though the sheriffs office to get a lost title. Check with your DMV and see if they do a lost title form or if there is anything that can be done.
