2 LV build

Going to try to build 2 LV's out of three. Did a crazy quick road trip through Vegas and into Utah to pick up 2 of the 3. Towed the Tundra out picked up a trailer and the 2 LV's. Thanks Mike!

We will keep you all posted with progess.

Red and White 67 was picked up in San Diego. I think I am the third owner, the original owner was from El Cajon CA. Roof is toast, but the body and a lot of the interior looks pretty good. Has three AC units installed wherever space available...

White 66 picked up in St George Utah from a guy named Mike. He picked up in the LA area a while back. Body is very clean and somewhat rust free. Rear floor boards were removed for some reason. It has pretty much all body parts.

Redish rust 67 was found by Mike in a field I think he said Mesquite Nevada. It's complete minus the glass, that was all broken by vandals. Its actually in really good shape as well, except for some sheet metal damage in the rear.

So we should have 2 complete rigs from the 3. Possibly some extra parts and pieces for sale to help fund the projects.

The white LV will go back to stock....as much as possible. Using the frame and parts from the red and white, and drivetrain from the rusted one.

The Rusted LV will get 5.3/auto/LC case, AC, Steering, disc brakes, maybe interior cage....we will see.

St.George and Mesquite are good places to find them. I love the stories of these coming back from the dead. Nice work, looking forward to the builds.
