Here is a car I found in Chilliwack a couple years ago with Jason - we didn’t get to buy the car (we were out bid). It was pretty rusty, and its whereabouts is now unknown. So it may not qualify as a true existing car any more.

Hi All;

This car is up for sale again - a good guy (Bill) and long time 510 Club member has had it for the past 2-3 years but has realized it's just not the project for him. Wisely he did not disassemble the car, and it remains for the most part intact. The original dr’s front fender have been removed - and there is some work to be done under the fender rails. A glass dr’s fender included. Rockers are also soft as noted in the above photos. Floor is still good and without holes. It's originally an automatic car, but comes with a spare motor/trans, grill and interior parts. Has yet to be driven since I took the photos above 10 years ago! But it's changed hands a few times for sure. Front bumper is no longer with the car

Car is currently in Chetwynd - about 12 hours’ drive north of Vancouver. Do your homework – that’s a heck of a drive!
I'm hoping that the car is far enough away to make a really good owner - someone who really wants an early production car – to save this one, and that is what Bill would like as well.

Here are some more phone pics Bill sent me tonight;

Someone with some skills needs this car, it'd be worth it to save this one. If I had time....

Contact the owner through Kajiji if you have questions.

I'm about 2 hours away from this car. I could part it out but I'd rather see someone restore it... Such an early production 510 deserves to be restored.

I had a text from the current owner, he's had a change in plan and decided to restore the car. I've asked him to join this group for support.

I too agree that this one is worth of saving, topic now moved to Project Builds
