I just traded a 90 percent rust free 67 c-10 stepside in good running condition for a 67 cougar with a good interior pretty straight body (some signs of bondo but so what).
let's hold a pool on how much it cost's me to get it legal. the winner gets half the pool money and i get the other half to go toward the work. 5 dollars a head to enter.
i'll scan bills and post them.
i'm thinking i can do it for 2300.00. but i haven't had it on a rack yet.

Almost everything I ever do costs twice as much as I think it will. Good luck with your project.

Only to get it "legal" define please. No Motor? I got 2v 302 (68) sitting in the shed that's in good running condition. Have a factory 4v intake too...

bad, i have no idea. it's got an engine that's been sitting for 4 years. here's what i know:
the oil is full and looks new.
the transmission fluid looks new
the coolant level is low
the interior is in good shape
no battery so i don't know anything about the electrical.
if the engine turns out to be crap i'll probably get a crate 351.
al, i'm thinking i get it up an running for 2k, i'm hoping for less than 1k and prepared to spend 4 to 5k.
we'll see. i know i need a battery.
i'm planning on replacing the gas tank.
i'm going to put electronic ignition on it (that wouldn't count in the getting it legal cost)
who knows what the wiring, suspension, and drive train will really be like.
