Was stripped to the bone and acid dipped in the late 1980s and is finally going back together.

I read your thread title, and I was concerned that you owned a Javelin that you rolled (wrecked) second time...Gasp! 
Glad to see otherwise.
It looks like a road racing project??
What are your plans?

Plan is to get it restored as period correct as possible.  Car raced from 1978-1985 in SCCA.  Here is what it looked like early in life.

That was one nice looking race car!
Are you going to recreate the period livery??

I plan to go back to this look.  This is 78/79 while A/S was still a class.  1980 it was turned into GT1.

Very cool. Always wanted a 70 drag project.

The stance and wheel/tire combo look female caninein’!  I like the plan to go back to red, white and blue?

in the early 90s l bought a BBG 70 Javelin that was used as a Road Racing SCCA car had the flairs on the front and rear like this  was going to be a project and after finding others that were a lot closer to being done I sold it in like 2005 .   Im not sure what ever happened to the car after l sold it but l do know it went to someone in the Niagra Falls NY area 
    It was a track champion for many years in the 70s and early 80s
