If someone owns a '74-'76 S&S within a couple hour drive of New Orleans... Stripping parts + scrapping remaining = cheap security.

Can't believe that S&S actually did at least 2 cars with Jasper Green Maharaja interior! I have never seen a hood that rotted out! Definitely worth grabbing as a parts car. Wish there more/better photos.

Notice the rusty hue to the headlights?

Makes me think this spent some time underwater.

Is the 76 bumper the same as a 74?

'65-'76 bumpers are comprised of 5 components James. In order from one side to other:

end-blade-center-blade-end

The ends (taillights mostly) obviously change according to the year. Centers (license plate surround) changed shape according to coach builder and model but were the same width. The horizontal blades are the same size from '65-'76: '65-'70 are identical; '71-'73 have reverse lights added; '74-'76 have taillights shown.

With exception of the ends, the center 3 components are technically interchangeable from '65-'76, although not 'correct' per se.

Thanks for the info, but I was curious about the front bumper. They appear to be the same. I have a good front bumper on my parts car if someoneis in need of one.

In looking at the interior photos, I would say that it has not been under water. No interior mold or mildew visible in the photos. Were I wiithin 200 miles of this car, I would be all over it. This one has tons of good parts waiting to be harvested! Don't they use those 500 cube engines in the air boats down there??

No Caddy motors in the air boats around here. It's all 454 or up Chevys. Heck, not even all the Caddys have Caddy motors.

I didnt mean it litarally when i asked if it was in a swamp. Its just that I cant imagine how it got to be this rusty, cars in Iowa do not even rust this bad.

I have never seen a hood that rusted out.... in any state! The air boat guys in Eastern Nebraska all want the Cadillac 500 c.i. engines for their boats that they use to run on the Platte river.

There may have been a fire in the engine compartment at one time.
