    Thanks to all the responses I am still trying to get the GS back the owner has been unable to clear out his garage and get the car off the lift. As soon as I have more info I will let everybody interested know.

    69GS400s ...my own amusement ride!

    waiving a WAD of GREEN colored paper with dead presidents on them under the owners' nose is usually a good motivator :Do No:

    This is Ron Steiner I've had trouble using my original sign on so I created a new one. Just to bring everybody up to date I finally purchased the car in September of 2017. The body is in great condition with no rust or rot the paint is a 35 year old lacquer which has usual cracking. The engine turns out to be a 455 stage 1, not sure what year. The wiring needs a lot of help and I have started to replace the race car part of the wiring. I probably will take the engine out and possibly rebuild if needed same with the tranny which is a turbo 400 manual shift. If anybody can let me know how to post pictures please let me know. More to come, Later!!

    Got to love the mid to late 70's.
    Paid $600 for the car, $150 for the 455 stage 1 engine and put another $2000 into it.:)
    Inflation or not, it was still cheap I think!!
