    I love to find cars in that exact state...great find. Sorry to hear about the previous owner, though. Sounds like a true car guy. RIP.

    Looks like a really nice roadster. It's hard to tell from the pictures, is it 2-tone blue?

  13. Well I sure wouldn't have any idea in the world what to do with it. :rolleyes:

    Looks pretty solid, you get a deck lid and a gas tank etc? How complete is it?

    Nice project and it looks like a lot of the preliminary work has already been done. Keep us posted as you get into the project.

    As mentioned, the car was taken apart 20 yrs ago, painted blue and never put back together. I'm told all the parts are there and based on the big stuff and boxes of parts...I believe it. I think I'll just put it together over the winter and see how I like it...and go from there. Will now attempt a few more pics not that I have it home.
