          $80,000.00 for the restored numbers matching car then another $45,000.00 to restomod it.

          They said it was up for sale on eBay auction. I wonder if it sold and what it went for.

          Never liked a car that smacked a pole dead center. You have to wonder how hard the front of the crank was hit.

                I like the story that was told about the owner. Installing nos wasn't a good idea was it? What a shame to have wrecked a decent looking car.

                When you're on YouTube there is a pull down window that normally shows the date that it was posted. It's a little triangle that you click on. Also it's where the poster can leave info about their video. You did nothing wrong. Thanks for posting :thumbsup:

                    Maybe that wreck knocked some sense into him.

                      What an idiot, the previous owner wanted a restomod so he bought a real A12 RR and customized it. With air ride to boot,:wtf::(. That's smart. He was better off with a regular 69 roadrunner for half the price. Then making an A12 clone

                        I believe it is an A12 Superbee. This car was bought by a guy from Mass,and repaired.

                        Yeah, after the admonishment I got for wanting to put a triangulated 4 link in my Real V-code, non #s matching drivetrain car (I wound up deciding to go with Caltracs full setup) I am baffled and a little pissed off by someone who would "restomod" A REAL A-12?? :mob:
                        It definitely would have been better to "clone" an A12 and then do all of the mods along the way...
                        That must have REALLY SUCKED hitting a pole in that car.
                        Glad someone rescued it.
