    Proportions on the body are great.

    Wow! Glad you found what's left.
    It would be very interesting to have been able to trace the
    car's history and see how it ended up in that condition.
    You would think "car folks" would have done better.

    That car has the look. When they built it did they keep the wood in the body? What are your plans for it?

    Amazing, and still wearing a lot of it's original striping it looks like! I truly hope whoever buys this has a deep appreciation for it's history and it can see the road again, either in preserved or fully restored condition. The sheetmetal looks excellent yet.

    Wow, what a terrific find!!! Body looks to be in great shape. Lead work used in the chop and cowl vent fill. I'd drop it on a running chassis as is and drive it that way for awhile before painting/restoring it.

    Looks like someone started a redo and then shoved it out in the back lot when they needed the garage space. That may have saved the history of the car though.

    What a cool Chevy, there’s definitely enough there to get it back together.

    Beside mine, it is the only other Mallory Mag-Spark for a BlueFlame Chevy I have seen.

    Not doubting it's the original car/body, but the pinstriping is slightly different. But then again it looks like the paint is a different color. Maybe after a color change, the pinstripe was replicated. Still, I wouldn't mind having it. Maybe more pictures/articles will show up. Ron

    Dean Jeffries had too redo the pinstriping because it was
    Too risqué back then it was a woman with her legs spread.
    He redid it later we’re they were closed lol

    If you're only going to find half a car, that's the half to find!

  25. I hope you can make a deal @Austinrod it would be a shame for a Tech-NO rodder with on respect for history to get their hands on it!
