I bet its in there for frame rot- hopefully someone will save it, really hate to see any of these old cars crushed- especially rare ones...
question about 'boss429'- you got one? if so by chance might it be kk1311? I tried to buy kk1311 back when I was 18 and couldnt get a loan for the $8500, just always wondered what happened to that car-heard it traded hands several times in the area and was still in ohio, just often wondered if it ever got restored. that was 1982 and to this day I still think about 'that car that got away' daily.
the story behind 1311 as I remember it- when I saw it Fred Maibach pontiac in Rittman had it- he got it from a nephew in michagan who raced two of them, hed wrecked his first one, then put his motor in kk1311 chassis, wife got sick had to part with the car. both cars supposedly had the early 's' series nascar motor, car was complete except- slot rims/wrinklewalls, no air cleaner, open headers, cheap red earl scheib type paintjob- 14,000 on the odometer. last I heard the guy that owned Montrose ford in Akron bought it(mid 80's), damaged frontend putting it on a trailer, and it got disassembled for restoration- heard he died a few years ago, and car was sold to someone else in ohio, just wondered if it ever got returned to its former glory. those were the coolest cars ever built to me. would love to find a set of those heads to put on my 429-just for looks...on the street they were not the greatest, but to anyone thats never actually seen one firsthand-its a jaw dropping experience to see that monster crammed under that skinny mustang hood. the cramped engine bay really makes it look even more massive- and its just such a cool looking beast to boot- sculptured valvecovers a mile wide...man those were cool.
sorry got off on a tangent again- but MANY THANKS for putting up the info- I'll copy to the galaxieclub site too- hopefully someone will save the thing- even a frame job aint that bad- heck if I could do it anyone could :)
heres the mess I got into a couple years back:
