    I paid $1400 for it. It is a little over blue book value for it but it has had quite a bit of stuff replaced/rebuilt on it and it was what I really wanted.

    Lou, nice find. I assume it's running etc? You should be able to make a great cafe out of it. If you're looking for a cafe seat, try GlassFromthePast.com, he's a member here. If you're just looking for stock, ebay is the best bet...

    Yea it runs like a champ thats why i was willing to spend a little bit more. But yea i am going the cafe style and GlassfromthePast.com is probably where I am gonna get my seat because no one else seems to make a seat for a '79 special.
