    From the linked article
    '' it took about a year to bring the numbers-matching cars back to factory condition. ''
    Well, it only took a month on the TV show...
    I used to watch that show occasionally. Lets just say that after watching it is extremely doubtful I'd let them work on my car.
    Jest sayin'

    I'd rather buy a steam locomotive.

    Nice couple of cars. Not sure they’re worth the money even though they’re numbered cars. It’s not like they’re really rare, they made a lot of them in that body style.
    I’d be more apt to recognize the value of one year only cars.

    I am not sure they would be worth that asking price if they were 100% original.

    jay leno or rick hendrick would probably pick them up. Richard probably knows he'd lose his ass at barrett-jackson

    I’ve never been a guy that places more value on a “matching number” car.
    Ford doesn’t even have matching numbers, just date codes on parts.
    I like cars for what they are. I don’t care if they have original drivetrains, suspensions, etc.
    I prefer updated safety components.
