Re: 1974 Redline Squareback

Very nice, I'm building a 74

Who did the repair and installed the gusset?

What is the serial number?

WOW!

I’m not positive it is the same one but I read a story of a 75 Squarebcak that Lynn had repaired and installed a 76 gusset. You have something there if it is the same frame.

Glynn, 

You bought this from me, off Ebay last year. The repair was done by Lynn Kastin himself. The replacement '76 gusset and welds are Factory repairs. I don't know of another '75 frame with a '76 gusset. Glad to see her built up.

WOW! I wish I seen it on the bay, I completely missed that one, good thing for you Glynn because I would have bid against you, Sorry!  lol  Let me know if you ever decide to sell it Glynn.

I have read several interviews that Lynn had done and in one of them he mentions that frame, I need to dig it up and read it again. I printed out several of the interviews so I hope it is in one of them.
