Then why does he want to ruin it?

Eleanor kits are for rust buckets so the fiberglass can hide most of the rust and the rust repairs (when people actually try to repair it).

I'm with Barnett on this, nobody cares about Eleanors anymore, why ruin a good car with all that plastic crap.

I would be inclined to agree also, it is a personal choice thing, but cost and time verses long term reward may favour the original car,
Buy a cheapy bucket and chop it up...,

Massacre a beautiful 67 fastback to turn it into a movie car?
Each to his own and no disrespect meant at all, but it's not what I would do.

16 gt fastback

Im with your mate.
Best way to improve a dirty old Fartback is to make it an Eleanor.
Its well known that those that dont choose coupes are strange people anyway.
