There are still small things to do, but I was in a car accident in August and have a serious back injury and can't work on the car anymore so my loss is your gain. The rear deck lid will need to be replaced and I have an N.O.S. deck lid that will go with the car. I also have new seat foam and an oem am/fm radio that will go with the car. The rear passenger side window mechanism needs to be replaced and I have the new mechanism to fix the issue. I also have the original intake manifold and valve covers and they will go with the car. I also have a new oil pan as the current pan is dented and leaks.

If you are familiar with these cars you know how rare they are. This car will only go up in value.

Cool

Yep,

I'm selling my High Country. Most don't know that I had a really bad car accident and have 9 injured disks in my back with 4 of them being herniated. My truck was hit by an out of control driver on the freeway and my truck flipped 4 times before it came rest against the center divider. It has been over two months now and I've had no improvement. It could have been much worse and I feel blessed that I wasn't hurt more than I was.

I'm not able to work on the car which up until the accident was my therapy. I have decided that it is time to move on to something else and let someone else enjoy this great car. I am open to reasonable offers.

Cheers,

Ron

Ron,
Sorry to hear about you accident. Hopefully time will allow you to heal to get back in the car game again. If not, I bet you will find a passion for something else and be just fine.

I love the 67 Shelby hood!!! Nice touch!

Rob

Yes, I sold it back in November to a great guy that lives in Fairfield, California. He was buying it to surprise his son who was coming home from college. He was planning on finishing the car as a father-son project.

Cheers,

Ron

Yes, I was very surprised to see it for sale so soon. The gentleman that purchased it from me said that it was going to be a father/son project. Who knows? It's a really good car and would be a great investment for someone.

Cheers,

Ron

Damn,
I was enquiring about this car in March and I was too late. I just brought home a new set of wheels this week. Even with our low Cdn dollar it was still a good deal for me. I guess it just wasn't meant to be.
