Keep us posted love to see what it grows up to be...
So cool, love old survivors,.....keep us posted if it ever gets back on the road!
Way cool! Encourage him to take it on some local cruizes. Maybe that will encourage him to discover the fun again.
THIS is the kind of stuff that keeps me coming back to the HAMB each day.
so Jack...which one of those potbellied old guys in the pics are you, or are you the one behind the camera?
You know, I've spoken to the owner of this car many times - a nicer man you couldn't meet. He spoke about this car a couple times saying he needed to get it going again - I'm so glad it's going to happen. Good luck and I look forward to seeing it at the local cruisins ....
No one knows what went on in the owners life, please stop the stupid remarks, his car to do as he pleases.
Good to see the Day Arrived to start this project back up Very Kool Stuff
Wow! Incredible find! Those smiles will last a long time with this great find!
Larry, I'm the good looking one on left with big smile, I have been trying to help this happen for about 35 years...
Jack,congratulations on getting your friend motivated to get the coupe back on the road.
Having met you a couple of years ago at the Shades of the Past Monsoon Rod Run
I recognized you right off ,,remember all the rain?
Which one of the two other guys in the photo is the owner? HRP
Rumor has it that the guy would have likely have started getting it back on the road 40 years ago and kept it on the road if Famous Jack had not waited 10 years to start working on him!
Just kidding. Jack is the best and is well known for being more than willing and able to help anybody... especially if they have a 32!!
Dave, and Al , Thanks I can always count on you guys to say something nice???? ...Danny, you have a good memory ,the owner, is on the right and Robby to the back ,we were at Shades in his black Dearborn , yes it was wet...The owner and I read the little books in 8th grade class inside our text books...Somehow things never change....
Maaan how will he ever get all that dust off of it?
pretty cool story. The makings of a fine ride.
How is this for dirt????
Wow! What a time capsule
And I thought I was bad, glad to see there are a couple more of us out there. Just great!
i hope you keep it un-restored.. that is sweet car.
I don't have a clue but the 8 track advertisement was probably in a Playboy or Hot Rod magazine under the boot,,yeah,it is a time capsule. HRP
This is really cool. Keep us posted.
I knew you had something to do with this resurrection Jack!
Jack, it's so cool. Just hope the water level hasn't reached it. Stay dry, Ron
I love these old survivors.
Here's a picture of it in its heyday (1961 or 62). I remember seeing it running around (1964?) as a young lad shortly before it was parked. I was 11 or 12 at the time and a big fan of the Bullwinkle cartoon show. I liked the Bullwinkle moose on the spare tire cover. (BTW I just turned 60)
Neat vintage photo, but man is that thing a mile in the air. The teeny tires difinately are a contributer too.
