Indeed.....It is a nonsense.Another 'barn find' !
The number of rusty wrecks appearing over the last few months, and being sold for big $$$ boggles the mind and common sense.
The Falcon 'Chicken coupe' attracted the attention of The Enforcer and The Dude who suggested that all it needed was a bit of fuel, oil change and air in the tyres, and it could be driven away.
Next weekend, a GTR at a West Wyalong auction is expected to bring big money.
And now this one. Apart from the shell being originally a GTHO, it is now just another Falcon with no important bits remaining. Buy it, spend $150K on restoring it, and it will still be a replica or fake, as it won't be an original.
If you want to drive a classic 60s > 70s performance car, there are any number of roadworthy, driveable fakes around for a lot less money, that will satisfy the driving want, if not the snob value and bragging rights.
Fools and their money and all that.
