True Barn Find - 330 America

http://sharing.theflip.com/session/6...video/12328097

I will update this thread as I can. I have known about this find for quite some time, but didn't want to let the cat out of the bag until some issues were resolved.

Car is being restored as I type. If you have any questions, let me know and I will try to answer them or get the answer, I know the owner pretty good.

330 America! What are there, less than 30 of those?

Very Cool Post. Glad you put it up. Can'telieve it made it through all those years without being discovered. Very glad to see that he plans a concourse quality restoration.

A little..

A little elbow grease will buff that right out!

Looks like a significant amount of work. Is this the same car that Tommy Yang restored?

Love to see the photos as the job expands.

Should be interesting to see when it's finally restored. Any idea of completion date?

Yeah that is the same thing Tommy Yang restored. That barn find is looking pretty rough though. One of 50.... these should be highly desirable, as much as a 2+2 car be, as the years wear on.

Current: 85' GTS QV
It's a simple process...... it's just complicated by human beings....

Awesome find, any chance Patrick Otis is the one helping restore it? A few years back when I was in his shop he had a 330 up on the lift, awesome car, very rare.

I'd rather see a full restoration of that 330, than see it parted out, but it's definitely very involved!

Hey Wetpet, what about that 275 restoration project? Are you still involved with that?

( Sorry for the temporary thread hijack, Robbie )
