My car was also one of the few S&H's that originally had a white interior with maroon dash..Since the original dash disappeared from the previous body shop, it helped make the decision to switch the whole thing over to a black interior anyway I found that the switches were pretty stiff and there was alot of sand type material inside the dash area..probably remmants from the media blasting on the first paint jog..the first thing I will do when the car is back is to tear the whole thing out and clean it up. Probably replace the heater core at the same time too so I dont have to worry about that later on..

I made sure and put a piece of tape saying "DO NOT PAINT" by the production numbers under the hood, this and the metal firewall tag are the only things left to prove its identity since the original dash/and VIN plate vanished and the door sticker was cut off with the old rear clip. I was lucky though that I have "2" build sheets, one in the driver's door is still completely intact, the one under the rear seat was starting to shred...

It looks like the floors and trunk were in really good shape.I know damn dust collects on everything if you don't wrap it up.You can have a new door jamb sticker made by martiauto works.I think it was like $25 and a report is like $40.They did mine and came out just like original.

That "accident" is one of my biggest fears once my car is done. I hope I handle it well. Nice job on the rebuild.

I'd probably raise it at least $5k,maybe $7-8K.Our cars aren't getting any easier or cheaper to find parts for,especially nos parts,they're drying up as we speak and also not a lot is made for our cars as far as repro stuff and sheetmetal is another issue.

When the previous owner had the accident, he almost had a stroke when his insurance company said they would give him something like $3500 which is what they thought the "book" value was for the car at the time, a basic '76 2dr Gran Torino. Luckly he got some help from starskytorino.com who was able to give him some documents to show his insurance company the actual value of the collector car..he must have been a good costumer too because they came to an agreement to pay for the whole repair. Then after getting over that headache, the body shop went under before the job was completed and he gave up and sold it...He learned a valuable lesson on having a old car valued for an "agreed upon" price for an auto policy.
