Hawaiian gt/cs hot rod article

Read this today. I could be wrong but my guess is it is neither. Unless the grille was replaced...of course marti will tell.

The holes in the taillight panel look close to what I have seen on a GT/CS. The protectors on the inside screws look original and are not normally installed on a clone car. The side scoop looks like an original from the inside of it. The hole the side scoop attaches to is two nice, but may have been finished when the car was painted.

Will be interesting to see if it is the real deal. someone should let them know that Kevin Marti is the source for authenticity, not Paul.

Chances are it is legit. Along with what was said above, it looks like the proper hood lock bracket attached to radiator core support?
