    I finally got around to digging out my Uncle's 1947/48 SBD... Has not seen daylight since 1975 and is original paint... Incredible shape for it's age in a basement.

    Awesome! Please don't "restore" it. Just wash her up and enjoy.

    Keep it as is, just clean it up. If you “restore” it, it will just be another soap box car.

    Good stuff! Great to hear it is still in the family. The closest I got to having one was the boy scout pinewood derby car! LOL!

    So what's you're plans for it?
    Are you sell it or restore it.
