    That is a cool old kustom, I've knocked on that door, the answer is always "not for sale".
     
  3. I'm waiting for a call from the owner. If I pass on it, I'll let you guys know any info I get. That is if no one buys it out from under me now that I've posted it:rolleyes:
     
  4. Looks like it was a pretty clean build. Looks good.
    Hope it can be saved.

    pretty cool looking old ride and it has some history to , and maybe some termites in the grill , hope someone gets to save it ,
     
  10. Maybe if you don't have time for one more project, you could post some pics and contact info and any other details, perhaps some other HAMBer can come to the rescue, hopefully it can stay in the region where it's history is...

    that thing is coooool!
     
  16. I just got back from talking with the owner. He didn't have much new info on the car. It was pictured in a group shot in Hot Rod some time in 1961. Maybe someone can look it up. He said it was purple at some time but didn't remember if that was the color in 61. It had a black and white TV in the back. I couldn't get any better pictures because of how it was parked. The seat frames were in the back, but it was rough in and out. It has an Olds block, but no heads. The body work was about what you'd expect for the times. Not great, lots of lead. Looks like it was finished nice though. It has severe surface rust. Looks like it was parked in bare metal and lead. It's been sitting for 20 years without windshield, and whats left of the other glass.

    It is for sale. Ten grand! That's about 9000 more than I would spend for it! But if anyone is interested I'll be happy to pass on the info. He also has several T's for sale and some bodys. I think they would be priced more reasonably.

    That man has rusty gold. Fools gold if you ask me he can keep the pos for that. My 2 cents
     
  18. a price like that makes me think it's still not for sale.. did you tell him that was lead work on there and not gold work :)

    I doubt it! The guy has always been clueless Thats the way I figured this would turn out. He owns a pawnshop downtown, maybe that is where his thinking comes from. The car sat there for at least 20+ yrs that I know of and will probably set there another 20 at that price. Will still try and get some background on the Olds from my buddy and post it on this thread. I guess this explains why the original owner didn't get it back after locating it recently. Too bad for all.

  23. Cool that's the car. Well it does have some history. Not ten grand worth, but history none the less. Thanks for looking that up.

    It's really a shame that he is such a fool to ask such a rediculous price. Obvious he isn't a true car lover or else he would understand the need to hurry and get this thing patched up before it rots into the earth

    WOW... was a nice car..too bad it will never get saved
     
  30. It will get saved someday. Not by me! Life's to short. I like the car, but not enough to restore it if it were 500.00.There's enough people around here that want it. He's no young guy.
