Any idea if the buyer would continue with the same theme?
New data that came Monday is indicating this is more than a respiratory disease now. Will see if I still have the links and send them to you via PM.
Thanks for the pics; nice variety!
Good to see that an old shoebox Ford-illac is still on the road, and in the P.N.W.!
Love the slide guitars and fiddles; these were some of the first "car tunes", so to speak.
Why, these are even pre Hi-Fi days!
It's been many years since I lived there, so didn't trust my memory. "No way that can be Cabrillo."
Incredible the city council allowed it!!
Would like to think it is, cuz I was gearing up for some Waves of '64 and his surf guitar
licks as I opened this........and he was a car guy, too,...
One other visual, incidental detail, fwiw, the valve cover plug wire loom(?) was silver in '49, and gold in '50.
Possibly, but could also be a misprint, and is actually a '56 365 in. Eldo mtr.
Well, that's a real blast from the past, and to the beat of one of my old favs., "Green Onions".
Who remembers the band and the year it came out?

Love the color combos! What is the exterior called? (Looks similar to oem Vineyard Green).
Drivetrain details? T-5 trans.?
Congrats, man; this is the big step that makes it all worth while. Those gaps around the fenders and grille can be the most problematic; and...

Welcome from Washington! Be sure to check out the Old Farts Club sub forum.
And if you could use more room around the distributor and bell housing, look into the old wheelbarrow trick!
I applaud your talent and balls of steel; this chop is certainly not for the faint of heart!
Gonna look bitchin'..........
That black still looks wet and deep, like it has 6 coats of clear on it. But I believe you mentioned
it's Single stage?
Wondered if it was the Real Deal, at first glance (dash plaques). Looks like a few well-known racers have passed it on; one couple in particular...
53 &1/8 in. from inside corner of door frame to other side. Good luck!
If you really, really promise, I can get it for you tomorrow a.m. You're talking about measuring width-wise?
