local car that someone found that had been in a barn for 15 years then moved out. He told me he also had a '51 merc. out of it also, had it running in an hour but I missed it. I'm happy with the '40. It prob. had a banjo stearing wheel cause someone took it out with stearing box. Hood was left upside down and has a couple rust holes from that. Floors are in good shave as is body. I was going to use parts off it for my '37 (brakes) but it is too nice to strip. Will keep it together and start gathering parts. Wife shaking her head.
