Richard has a great point, I just think that there is a stigma associated with that kind of title. I kind of have that same problem with my GT/CS in that it was put on a Bronco frame and had a special state issued VIN for 20 years of its life. It is part of the history. But really, there are a lot of old cars brought back from the grave.

As Jay Leno stated - "If you are making money at restoring cars, you aren't doing it right." Someone else here has the tag line that goes something like this - "much more than a hobby".

I would still encourage you to do what you can. I farm out body work, transmission and engine machining and then do the rest. There are lots of helpful guys on here that can help with most aspects of your project.

Whatever you decide - keep us all posted. I would love to follow your resto.
