Seller has no clue as to what he has. Unless it has been switched out, it has a 472.

Sad old coach. I do LOVE the rear interior though.

probably a decent enough car. Looks to need a paint job skirts decent tires and detailing of the engine bay. The problem with the custom paint is not many
People will go for your ida of cool. It will how ever make a good guide coat for blocking. And of course get that hokey tint off the glass.

Looks to be a rot-box to me! You could throw a cat through those quarter panels!

More bad news I checked with seller and the beautiful graphics are painted on not plastic wrap so another strike. A shame the Coach has to be one of a kind from S&S.

Mounts for the skirts rotted off. Still rather fix that then do a compleat interier? But the car is on the high side that is why it has not sold.

My opinion the white interior. Then again I like white interiors (cool when left in sun on a convertible). Never saw another Coach with white interior. Miles vs. rust car must be out of the far north.

I totally agree with Ed. Would much rather take on rust issues than a coach that has been gutted or has a trashed interior. This awesome interior is the only thing that would make this one "restoration worthy" in my opinion. Otherwise, just a parts car.
