    VIN 2203 "barn find"

    Hi everyone!
    My name's Jayce, and I'm from Atlanta, GA. Just wanted to share some photos of my new project. This is VIN 2203 and she's been sitting in a garage near Atlanta, GA since 1996 or so. It has 23K miles on it and nearly everything looks original except the back tires, which were completely the wrong size. The rear and front fascias have also been painted, but I'm planning on replacing the front because it has warped badly. I suppose I'll use this thread to keep track of the restoration. Looking forward to getting her back on the road!

    Thanks!

    My VIN:    Pending. Previously 10115 & 5252

    Those front tires look a size or two too big as well.

    I've seen a few old photos where it looks like the owners decided to up the front tire size rather than lower the suspension to get rid of that big wheel arch gap. Maybe this was one of those cars, at that time.

    Maybe I'm not seeing it in the pictures, but your front fascia looks fine to me apart from some eyebrows, and those can be easily fixed.

    Congrats on the purchase!

    I agree the eye browing doesn't look terrible but it could be the angle. Definitely looks fixable though.

    Maybe the PO swapped the front and back tires...
