    What about a behind the garage, inside an old semi trailer find? Body was in there since the late 60s/early 70s. Frame was in their museum since the late 80s/early 90s. 077.JPG 078.JPG 079.JPG 075.JPG

    Many things influence this unfortunate outcome...Death, Critical Illness, Lost interest, Loss of job, Hoarding Mentality, Marriage breakdown, Resale to people that sit on it and do nothing due to motivation or lack of time and space to keep things pristine and Estate situations in lieu of death to name a few. This has been realized many times around here. Priceless stuff to us means squat to many others.

    Thanks for doing that Carlos...Your pics will grace those articles in perpetuity
    I hope you got credit for that...So what was your involvement in all of this...are you a friend of the person who bought this historic gem? It seems to have passed on to a second owner since your retrieval project the pics were taken on.

    Actually you should update the thread you started with the bolded link as it seems this thing is rolling on wheels already with a pretty monitored resurrection going on.

  13. While I can appreciate the custom 36 coupe for being groundbreaking, I can't really say that I care for the styling. Rather fugly to me.I would probably remove all that work if I had it so its a good thing I don't.

    I was the third one to bought the Custom Sport for a restoration, but sold it like that for 1,000$ with a running 409 from a truck (that I paid 500$ for)...
