    Hi, I'm Brooks. I'm new to the H.A.M.B. This is my 1963 Rambler Classic 550 project car. It came with no engine, trans, front seats, clock, radio, and probably lots of other things. The body is in surprisingly great shape, and the interior is in pretty good shape too. The plan for this is a sleeper build(kinda). We've got a 327 and a trans for it already, Thanks Dad and Pop. I'm not quite sure what my next step is since winter is right around the corner, so I guess I'll just save up my money and collect parts until next spring! Any help, advice, or feedback is welcome and highly appreciated. I'm always willing to learn -Brooks(Greenblade)

    Hi Brooks. Good to see you moved post from the intro board and started one here as more will see it. Looks solid with just a bit of rust here and there. If you can get it the garage for winter you could so some sanding and priming go get all the rust you can removed and primed. If the floorboards & rockers are solid then rust removal will not be so bad. It would be nice if you could find an old cheap parts car that had all the interior items you need as that would save a ton of money. You might try Googling around for parts & you should get a bunch of hits but usually around 50 % of those will be worthless crap. Be careful posting want lists on the internet as scammers look for that and will make all kinds promises trying to get your money.
    Good luck, Jim

    It's actually really solid. Most of that rust is only surface. There is one trouble spot on the passenger side floorboard. Decent sized rot hole there. Nothing I'm too worried any though. Thanks for the "want list" tip, I'll make sure to not make what I'm looking for too public.
