Moose, as far as we know, Bill's car was built in Canada.  The records indicate only 214 such coupes were produced that year up here.  She's a rare bird for sure.

Hah!  Guess what Bill?  I just posted a pic of the Body by Fisher tag on Kiwijeff's thread.  Looks like both our Fisher tags are in good shape.  Is there a body tag at all on your firewall?

 Unfortunately there are no VIN tags or body tags. I was worried about that but I have been told that it not too hard to get another VIN assigned  to the car. Trouble is , I need an inspection first before I can get it registered and I can't get it registered till I can pass the inspection.  It will more or less  have to be roadworthy  but maybe no paint. That's a year or two down the road before that happens.

Bill, That's interesting.  I didn't know the Canadian Chevys had that special Body By Fisher tag.

W3Bill  After reading all this and looking at the picture if you want to move it to my shop for $200 to get your money back just head this way. Finding this to be very interesting keep it coming. Good luck with your build.

Hi Bill, I just read your thread. Looks like you got some work to do there. By the time you get done you are probably going to have created a new language of curse words like I did. It will be a good looking car anyway, good luck.

Just reading some old threads. 3WBill, how is you build coming? Any progress, any pictures?
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn
