I think painting this would substantially hurt the value.
That a canvas visor over the door windows?
only place to paint it is under the wings with undersealer,maybe under the floor
Yeah they fold up for driving.
That truck is so cool ,
Watched some videos on YouTube where they preserve the patina with boiled linseed oil thinned with some mineral spirits. Seems like the best patina preservation measure yet! Way better than Gibbs oil...too pricey, auto wax...too much work, floor wax...doesn’t last too long, clear coat...way too permanent & doesn’t look very good.
Just wipe it on, let it sit a bit, then wipe off excess!
Doing nothing looks too dry and neglected, and doesn’t slow down the rust!
Reviving this thread is gonna piss a lot of people off. They are going to freak then weld too close to their pacemakers and all hell will break lose. (Great pics tho’!)

Boiled linseed oil and acetone mixed 50/50 works brilliantly. Been using it on this for about 8 years now with ZERO rust....about twice a year.
Paint this deuce 2dr. and it would look like any other deuce 2dr.! A Dan Greenberg Picture with 26 H.A.M.B. likes. Looks like it probably got the “CLR treatment” and possibly the “boiled linseed oil preservation coating”.
VERY COOL NEVER SEEN THIS BEFORE.
Hey Ron Brown!
I remember when that car looked like this!
You could have written the book on custom patina finishes!
