Default fiberglass/carbon body

for a 70-72 GTO/LeMans/Tempest!!!!! Somebody needs to make one. I'd put up quite a pretty penny and donate the donor shell!!! I really need to shed some weight off this pig so i can play in the 7's on motor like all the other kids

Maybe I can talk to my buds at VFN, I got a few things brought to market with them so maybe we can get this one too.

i talked to glasstek about 3 years ago and they wanted 8 grand plus my shell. I would think it would be a moderately selling product. in the 3 years and 3 models it applys to more applications than almost any other gto lemans model. and then we can quit cutting up our real cars. just feel them out and see what they'd think it would take money wise if a fella donated a shell to the project. if we could get these cars weighing in around 2350 raceweight like the 63 tempests/64 gto and late model firebird cars, im sure the styling alone would draw in some buyers

I know VFN has the doors, that's where my 70 fiber glass doors came from.

they have about everything except the shell itself.. i just noticed how nice theyre 67 bodies turned out. Be nice for us 70-72 guys to have a total body kit that weighs 135lbs like the beswick 64 does. imagine the possibilities

I met a guy at VMP who put glass quarter panels on his 71/72 GTO. A full frame car. It was pretty light, around 3000#, and looked bone stock. He had ALOT of fiber glass parts on it but you couldn't tell.

Well the 70-72 a body shell has promise after talking with VFN. They will talk things over and call me later today for first of next week. They said a donor body would greatly improve the likelihood of this to happen. Will pass on any more info as we get it.

we're going to try to have the rear framerails tacked up in the next few weeks so we can then postion the mounts and other little things in the trunk. After that, the steel body can come back off and all the remaining bracing and whatever excess is left can be cut out and it will be fit to be molded. If anyone needs to get ahold of me on this my cell # is 309-241-3497. thanks- adam

Will be calling VFN tomorrow on the status of an order and will ask if they had their pow-wow on the body.

They are still "in session" in their Tepee. Will check back with them this afternoon some time. They are debating if they would make an entire new body for the 70-72 or just take the 68-69 and graph on the 70-72 quarters to it for each order. Will keep you all updated as things develop.
