    This is one of those threads you feel you have to echo in on....because it is so unique, and yes, cool. You can build a modern day hot rod, but you can't replicate the years that have come and gone, since this was built....boy, if this car could only talk! Please leave it as is (sure some cleaning, might be in order).

    Holy cow! Me and a buddy came across this by a lead from a guy in his church. Less than 5 miles from where we work and we checked it out a couple of times prior to the lady deciding what to sell it for. We checked about 9 months later and no answer - must of been gone! Too cool that it's been parked since '64 - all so her husband could focus on raising his family - too bad he passed away a few years ago. His wife's a super nice lady. It used to cruise the local circuit with him and his wife by his side. Neat survivor for sure. Here's some pics we got while checkin' it out:

    Fantastic find, please preserve it as you have indicated. Several photos show the hood alignment at the cowl to be off some, has the chassis sagged or has the grille been raised somehow? One side shot looked like the hood was running uphill? This is just something I noticed. Well done, good luck with it, GB.
