    Offered to me by a friend.....in the barn for the last 27 yrs.
    Thoughts/ comments on body style?
    Some friends say its hideous others love the look.

    It's the short wheelbase fastback sedan - my granddad had a '49.

    Who cares what others think?
    If you like it, and the price is right for you, buy it.
    Otherwise, don't

    It's a "boat top", pre-cursor to the "boat tail". ;)

    I posted a pic of one here a few months back. It was a '47(?) coupe with a big block Ford in it, subframed with p/s and discs, and with an auto (C6 I guess). It was in a junkyard and priced at $100 over the value of the weight. No one seemed interested.

    Not a huge fan of the sedans, but if it's the little three window business coupe I'd say go for it. They make a good looking hot rod too!
