Car is definitely a GT with 429 emblems on lower fenders and it is a automatic. Need to know what rear to look for and what engine block or head codes to check it is not quite a basket case but it has a 429 in it. It needs D/S floor pan small patches in lower rockers and a small patch on LR quarter. Car can be had very cheap it does not run and the motor is locked up. Anyone interested can contact me via email. I am posting this for a friend of mine that did the body and paint on my fastback.

3 different 429's in 1970 Tommy.
TJ, CJ, and SCJ
TJ had Autolite 4300 carb
CJ had GM Quadrabog
SCJ had 4150 square bore Holley, solid lifters and 4 bolt mains.
Dead give away is oil cooler on core support and lines from oil filter.
SCJ is rare in GT.

TJ = Thunder Jet T-bird motor.
D2 heads are obviously not the originals.

D2's are low compression 72 heads correct?
I have to look at the rear on this car as it may have a decent gear in it even though it has A/C. Car also has hideaway lights. If someone needs a parts car this still has some decent items left on it.
