I think this is a 65 frame and 67 motor, but I would have to look up the numbers to be sure. but I need to make room in the shop so make me an offer

It’s a good buy that! Always the good ones are too far away.

The frame is an early 64’ Lightning Rocket. In front of the coil mounts you see a spot welded tab. This was used to mount the unique metal side covers
I’m looking for pair of those tabs if anyone has them or want to drill out the welds

The back of the frame appears to have loop weld to it make look like a Star. At the left front of the frame no tab with a hole for the ignition key. That came later

You might check the frame number

Good project
