I enjoy the color but I think it is cost prohibitive on a medium like BaT.
I worry about a Pig that has a new paint job but zero attention is put to the frame or engine bay. And more worrisome is there is rust already peaking thru the new paint.
Probably not a bad pig overall, but not if it goes for Warthog muney.

It looks like they painted over everything. Undercoat on the tailgate and the super fancy rear sill patch.
I just scrolled through, not very appealing with the fresh paint over so many shortcomings...hope somebody doesn’t get disappointed.

Very interesting, turn signals are unique for sure. Several discrepancies, I would like to know how they textured that tailgate? I need that skill to repair hole in a wall downstairs.

However, looking at the pics we are still gonna go with the Orange, cygnus white combo. Be interesting to see how high this one goes?

Buy it. You don't have enough irons in da fire 🔥 😤 😉🤣
I have a 4th 78 body and likely a spare frame, title and 2F/h41f, both axles, driveshafts, etc. harness is still in the truck.

Column, pedal assembly, and a bunch of small parts missing that will take a while to source. It might be the one “stock” pig when it’s done.

Maybe I’ll paint it ornch and sell it on BAT.

It has one bid from a bidder with a very odd bidding style.

The beautiful Orange/white pig below is what hooked me into acquiring one.
That was the color of my first pig. 1972 that I bought in 1973 for $3500 with 3500 miles on it. Aaahhh the memories made me com back for more
