After looking at all these pictures and the ones to follow in the second post on arrival on the two clips, I agree that it was perfectly restorable car and could have been saved, have had she existed here in Pakistan or any place else where the repair costs are lower than what they are in USA.
At least there is one thing that can be argued about such cars being chopped and its that the clips/parts go on to some other cars giving them new life, but that would be the weakest of the arguements. It should have been "saved".
I am sure the title on this one was either not clear or there was no title at all which convinced the pros to cut her up. B/w what about the VIN ID Plate from this particular car? Did you acquire that particular VIN ID Plate too? And what about the other "OVAL ONLY" bits which you would be requiring towards the project? For instance the sunvisor/steering/fuel tank/brake fluid reservoir so on and so forth? Or you wont be requiring those "Oval Only" bits at all?
On another note, I love the state these clips are in with OG Paint and all the tiny bits there in place still. I hope to see these live a new life.
Best of luck with the project that is going to evolve out of these "valueable vintage" cut ups.
