No doubt they've done a lot with it. From the frame up, looks like they swapped in a completely different powertrain, put a new top on, added armor, relocated the gas tank, new interior, put on some nice tires and cleaned it up real good. I don't see it as six figure good, but what do I know...

TLC does nice work and I don't doubt that everything on this rig is top of the line new. What blows me away is that there are enough people out there willing to drop this kind of coin on a toy that TLC can make a business out of it.

It's a slick rig for sure.

The frame is a 1969 Cruiser, TLC has to start with real, titled old frames to make them legal. But other than that I think everything is brand new.

you're surprised by the price? a basically brand new cruiser. built to modern standards. and if you ever seen tlc's attention to detail, you may understand a bit more. is it a lot, yes. but a lot goes into them too. they are along the lines of anything you would see at barrett jackson as far as cleanliness, detail, etc and barrett jackson has sold rigs for over $1mill
