Less, I suspect, that the money required to renovate a 46 year old Mustang or Corvette.
Point taken - but who in their right mind is going to renovate a car based on Pinto underpinnings like the '76 Mustang II? :p

Or a '76 Vette for that matter - which IMO was a low point for the Corvette. Mind you the same probably applies to pretty much any car made in North America in the 70's

Such a shame that the C2's were the shortest lived of all the Corvette generations.

Far and away the best looking of all of them. I still remember my first sight of a '63 - life changing for a 12 Y.O. boy.

Went out to Shelter Island today for a look at Hagar. Really looking good - spoke at length with the owner and quickly realized how glad I was that I didn't end up with it.

He peeled the entire top veneer off the port side and relaminated it due to rot & voids from the original build. Lots of work in the keel reinforcement as well.

New engine going in, new rig waiting etc. etc. The amount of work he has done makes my efforts on Mo Bettah look like a spring cleaning.

It's definitely in the hands of a worthy caretaker. He said he plans to launch in a couple of weeks.
