As always we need to warn that unrestored does not always mean unaltered by previous owners. Just because this car has/had a specific detail does not mean your car was built just the same. Always do your research, document your findings and make the best choice for you and your expectations.
I've personnally know this car since the early 90's (local car) and have enjoyed studying and looking at it closely for all those years. It is one a a very very few original factory Paxton cars still owned by the original owner. Many have attemtped to purchase the car and currently it will be given to his oldest for safe keeping when he's done with the car. Car is a painted Magnum, no stripe car. The owner made a few modifications very early in it life (example Koni's and spark plug wires) and over the years items that would wear (battery, exhaust ...) have been replaced. In more recent years things like spark plug wires and hoses have been replaced with reproduction items.
I really like this car and though I should of, I have never taken the opportunity to clean the undercarriage for the owners so that I could much cleaner pictures of that area.
Car has attended at least two of the SAAC conventions over the years - always gathering a group of people enjoying another unrestored car. I would estimate the build period at San Jose to be during the second half of May 66
Hope the sharing of these will help all of our understanding of these cars and foster some discussions.
1A - Rear wheelwell - Brake duct is mounted like late cars were. Sound deadener still shows a ton of red body color over it as expected
1B - Drivers side rear quarter panel - pinch weld black out. Got to love those helper springs
1C - Shelby/export brace firewall/cowl support and sealant
1D - Drivers side cowl area
1E - Hood pin and passenger side radiator support. Some one in the past got in here with a black rattle can. Also someone added cables so that the hood pins didn't get lost
1F - Trunk wire (interior light) clip detached. Screw protectors in the trunk have all been knocked off through use over the years. Full trunk going back and forth to all the shows
1G - Drivers side quarter extension area
More later .... enjoy
