This is a car I bought 15 years ago online and was taken. Supposedly a running, driving car withminor work needed, I received a car with a mismatched wheel, gas pouring from the carb, no brakes, mushy suspension etc. Looked like an Earl Shieb paint job over the body, engine, etc.
Started to make it roadworthy- got some suspension and brake work done- the title was lost by the company registering it for me. It went into the garage in disgust with my poor luck.Now I am de- Nashing. This car is NOT rust free, just not bad. Analysis: Solid upper trunk and spare well. Small hole in lower trunk not extending to sides, easy fix. Solid door bottoms, rear floor pans, rockers, right frame rail, fenders, hood. Rust-base of front jams, worst on the right., fixable. left rail- weak, has rot with holes, but again looks repairable. rear under chrome strip- rotted , both sides, repair starting to show, again fixable. Structural integrity intact!Rarity makes it worth of restoration or rodding.
