    yeah, ive never seen one before. I would have prefered it to be steel honestly.

    The car is complete, the parts that ya cant see are in the back.

    i dont have em yet. The axles are sitting up against the wall next to them.

    Any idea what there worth? Cuz the guy has dozens of them. Hes going to tell me to make an offer, and i wouldnt know where to begin.

    Ive got another guy who has piles of them too. He would probably sell em to me for the price of scrap.

  14. Well, technically, that's a dilapidated garage - not a barn.

    Yea, I've got a 29 60C blindback, exactly the same but it has metal there. Good find, you might run the numbers and see how many were made.

    I've been thinking about this car. I dont know if i could bring myself to cut it up. All i really want is a flatback sedan that i can chop and channel. This thing is complete with a good motor, where as i planned to use my 389.

    This is starting to turn into an ethical dilema. I wonder what a chopped leatherback would look like?

    Honestly, I probably would not cut that thing up. Its pretty cool the way it is actually. It would be fun to get it running and driving as is.

    Yeah. That would be a 60-A or 60-B

    The inner structure is entirely made of wood and will cost a MINT to replace the wood. If you're a good metal man, you could build a metal structure. Otherwise, if the wood is weak, the panels will just come apart.

    You don't see many of those on the road because people usually choose not to fix them up because of all the wood.

    Looks to me like it was saved a long time ago, now its just being brought back out into the sun light.

    If it had a wood structure, that gives you the right to do whatever you want with it, you have to replace the wood anyway, right? Have fun with it. Gene
