I wish I had considered this several years ago but it came to me again that I should be recording those 72 Customs that show up from time to time in order to track available quantities.

Having a place where we can document them all in one place would be optimal and I am willing to act as the axes for (with your help) documenting all sightings with both pic's and or Ad's'

Having info if with Build Sheet, Vin Numbers if available would be beneficial.  Doesn't matter if fully customized or all the way to stock.  Finding out as close as possible how many are still in existence is my goal.

Those within the Club who own Customs, please share your info as the Base for this quest.

Any and all suggestions appreciated.  I will attempt to categorize them in groups that match closest to each other.  Example - With Build Sheets would be one category, along with engine size ect. ect.

 

Let me know what kind of support I can expect in order to establish how many still in existence.

 

I am Dog watching this week and in and out but will be back to normal around here come Sunday.  No other commitments until April 4 thru the 8th for the Portland PIR Swap Meet at the race track.  Anyone attending are welcome to stop in and visit.  We will be set up on the West end of the (can't spell it) turn out on main straight away.  I will provide space numbers when I get that info.  Aftyer that I'm good til near the end of April for a day or two.  Just letting you know this so not to think I am being unresponsive, just busy at the moment. 

 

I am serious about wanting to establish some numbers to better reflect their rarity.

 

Thanx for the support and looking forward to your questions and advise.  ;)

Thanx Willie.  I don't expect to be able to track them all but come up with a informed representation.  Having enough info so as not to duplicate any finds is optimal.  Considering our reach as a Car Enthusiast Web Site, I believe with help, we can come up with current numbers that closely represents those cars.

I know of (2), one that was sold here in Oregon and another that periodically shows up on Craigslist.  I will check those Ad's placed in our Forum and see what I can glean from them for Custom ad's.

You don't have to be there to verify, any info seen, read or heard that can be verified.  I will attempt to break down the data supplied.

Once most/all had seen this, I think this could be a very useful Project for the Club.

If parted out, the information is mute.  Only those vehicles that are still considered restorable even if not running are eligible..

Cool idea, I'm in.

 

'72 Custom 350/350, 12 bolt posi. With build sheet, original engine, trans and rear (I did change the gears though) and lots of options, see my signature. Wish it was a big block, but oh well. What else do you want to know?

 

Cory M (CKZ03) a FGMCC Member from Ohio I believe, has an outstanding example of a Custom. Haven't  seen him on line for quite a while, but he was quite active a few years ago. Hope someone will encourage him to pipe up.

Thank you Mike.  Will see how all that info will work on a  Excel Spreadsheet.  This is the type of info that will help ensuring no duplication's.

Just as a reminder,  If you notice, see or hear of any during your travels, please take a moment to document car for this spreadsheet.  Everyone within our Club who comes up on a 72 Custom is encouraged to participate.   This will be an ongoing process as will likely only find them periodically.  Again thanx for all your help in identifying and locating them..................  ;)

When I have enough info and a good representation of the Excel Spreadsheet, I will see how/if/can post it for your review, ideas and or suggestions.

Hey Doug I will try and get my buildsheet out and list everything this week.

Appreciate that Willie.  I am currently constructing a Excel Spreadsheet that hopefully I can get as much info into as possible/practical.  When I am comfortable all the pertinent info is included, I will make a photo on the Scanner and Post it for you guys to inspect & then can inform me of omissions or erroneous info for those who see misinformation on their/others Cars..  A bit of a challenge trying to get enough space for all that info so had to change font size & use abbreviations for some of the features.  I have noted at the end of those what the abbreviations stand for and not close to being the final Draft so bear with me. 

Again a work in progress!  Any ideas, criticisms or otherwise always appreciated.

I am relying on the Club membership to help by identifying any Customs found anywhere and as much info as can be provided.  Our Membership has a International Reach as well as Nationally, so it is my belief we as a Club can come up with a educated number based on the info given.  Of course, it will be never ending until we can say absolutely no more Customs survived!!

 

You can use my email (camerondl@q.com) as well as the Private Message along with this Post as a way to communicate.

For those with Customs, I am leaving it up to each one in providing what info they want Posted based on the format provided, otherwise it will not show in Spreadsheet and ONLY I at this time will make any and ALL changes based on documented communication and your expertise in determining if a valid Addition.  If unsure, I will take the reins and attempt to contact (if possible) the owner & see what they can contribute.

 

Doug

Okay guys,

 

I have a rough draft for your review.  So much info I improvised getting it all on one page.  Acronyms are at bottom of pic in case you have trouble deciphering them.  Fonts are small so you may need to zoom in to see or print it out.  It is somewhat unorthodox, again due to the amount of info I included.  

Let me know what you think and please, if any ideas, do offer them up.

Also, I am thinking that starting a new thread where just that info found could be posted and only for those finds.  It will make it much easier for me to follow than having a lot of commentary with those cars identified.

As long as it came from the factory as a Custom (Z03) equipped, modifications are not important as long as verifiable.  If there are any questions, refer them to me so we can work through those problems.

 

 

While I intend to manage the info, I am relying on each to proof your data and advise if inconsistent so I can make those needed adjustments.  I am sure the guidelines will become more clear to all as we proceed'

For now, simply look over the spreadsheet, determine how it is laid out to make it easier to follow.  Any questions, please do.  While I am mostly in and out during the day, there is a Swap Meet coming up next Wednesday thru Sunday I will be attending as we have a Booth there for all day each day and will not have much if any time during that period to respond to questions.  Don't get disheartened, I will get back to you when I have the time.  Once Swap Meet is over, I will be more back to normal again until the Car Shows start lining up.

 

Thanx all,. ;)

 

Doug
