Backstory: A friend of mine was taking his girlfriend out to eat in Saint Louis. He was looking for a parking spot and turned down an alley where he spotted a 1950 shoebox ford. He sent me a picture and after some research I located the owner. The owner, a man in his late 40s early 50s, tells me he has owned the car about 15 years. He drove it back and forth to work everyday up until about 5 years ago. Its at that time the car was parked and has sat ever since. About 2.5 years ago he got it running and was going to start driving it again and someone slashed all 4 tires on the car at which point he gave up and let it sit again. The good: •Wired for 12v •Flathead 6 was rebuilt and has about 2k miles on it. •Interior is 9/10 •He has the original fender skirts too •He has original brochures/paperwork •The car seems completely original and is overall in good shape. The bad: •It has some rust over the fender wells on the passenger quarter and the lower front fender behind the wheel. Not terrible but will need patch panels. •underneath is crispy. It was hard to tell how bad because all 4 tires are flat, im just worried about the floor pan. At a minimum it needs sandblasted/wire wheeled and undercoated/painted. •almost all the exterior chrome needs redone. Im looking for a good family car to tool around in and take to some shows like the roundup. Would keep it stock, get it running and driving and may eventually chop it and paint it. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks for looking.
