1971 Glassic

I purchased this 1971 Glassic New Years day in northern California.....I was told that this car was built in Florida in 1971 by Glassic ...glassicannex.org ( later to be bought out by Shay the pinto powered model A people ) on a NEW 2-wheel drive Int. Scout frame...4-cyl., 3-speed with overdrive etc. It came as a running , rolling chassis and body that needed top, windshield etc. installed to be complete. This car was sold new in quantity to California Corvette in Hayward California. They in turn , put new corvette motors and transmissions in them and sold them for the big bucks. This one never got blessed for some reason and was sold to Harrah's Auto Collection in Reno Nevada at Auction. It then sat in their warehouse until Bill Harrah passed on. The powers that be , had a huge Auction and sold off most of the project cars and many finished cars to scale down the collection. This car was purchased and sat in a garage in northern California for another 17 years until the owner decided that he too had no interest in finishing the car. Keep in mind that this car is now 37 or so years old and has never been registered. It still has the nipples on the 1971 poly glass white wall tires that came with it new. The Motor is now froze up due to sitting for years but, I thought I would take a chance on it for $ 2400 and see what could be done. As you can see in the pictures it can become a looker with some fine tuning and possibly a V-8....Sooooooooo this is how I start 2008 ...Happy New Year...Bill....The Old Oregon Farmer...
