    Yep it was in a barn. covered with years of crud. I wish i had my camera when loading it. anyway. last inpsection was 60-61. 56,000 miles. this was after just a quick wash. Insides pretty good too. original jack, spares and tire chains. should make a great daily.:):)

    Make sure the e brake works or chock the tires if you need to park on a grade. The fluid drive does not provide compression braking with the engine not running.

    Even with the three speed in gear, there ain't none.

    How can I find a barn find like that? There just aren't enough barns here in Los Angeles, damn it!
    That is a fantastic find.

  29. Every time I think all the good barn finds have been found, somebody finds another one. It cleaned up pretty nice for one that's been sitting nearly 50 years. It would take the "Please, Sir, Don't Restore That Car" plaque at our show.
