    I went to look at a FY1 car around 1980 or so, it had a Sat/RR front end. Still had wing, rear glass. I'll never forget how the guy told his girlfriend "That's how my cars supposed to look." I was driving my Lemon Twist 'bird, his car was for sale.

    Saw a red 69 charger with flush rear window and short decklid in a field in tn in 90's. No dash or vin ID I could see but had regular nose on and had black plugs on rear quarters where wing would have been. Looked to have been that way a long time

    My Superbird had its wing taken off by the owner of the dealership it was sold new at. The original owner, then 19-year old Mr. Aguilar, bought the car, knew what it was ( the nose was still on it ) and told the dealership to put the wing back on....... You can see where the paint on the top of the quarter around the wing base is fading away. The rest of the car still retains its original paint...

      There is a de-nosed 'Bird here in OKC. It was an ISCA showcar during the late '70s through the late '80s. It hsd the fancy never-driven show paint, chromed brake drums, and a whorehouse interior...and retained the wing and window. It was bought by a local guy after it did its show duties. The original owner sold the nose assembly to the current owner. He intends to restore the car back to stock. Haven't seen the car in15 years, but I know it still exists locally. Have to get pics of the car. IIRC, it's a 440 4 bbl car.

          That may have been the one I saw way back when. It was for sale at the time, FY1 4bbl bench car!
