    I've had this very rusty 65 2dr. sedan body for a few years.Listed it on a couple of sites no takers.Don't want to scrap it,my first altered wheelbase conversion(sentimental value I guess).I won Jeems a.k.a Jimmy Smiths auction for Tucks fire fund.Him and I bounced ideas back and forth and this is what Jimmy came up with.Cutting will commence this summer.

    What to do with a Rusty Body no one Wants?

    To answer your topic question, I'd scrap it. But since that's not an option do whatever you want.
     
  8. Slap it on EBAY no reserve starting bid $100 and see what happens?

    Donate it to goodwill for a tax break, or give it to some kids to play in.
     
  10. Should be very cool to bring that drawing to life.
     
  11. a lower altered? i think thats damn cool,and definitely different.

    not sure if i like the targa style roof.

    but i like the concept,do if ya like it thats the only person who has to like it.

    but if you start a build thread i will be one to watch for sure.

    We got the targa roof idea from from the Flying Dutchman Dart.

    all floors are gone lower cowl is shot as well as the lower part of the firewall wheelhouses have holes the lower quarters were gone I replaced those with donor parts frame rails have soft spots.
     
  18. Sentimental value? .... once you molest it you can never go back! Preserve it and pass it onto your kids.

    i love the art!! the targa top always seemed like an after thought to me. i think if it were mine, i'd make a canopy like jack chrisman had on his '66 comet. either way, it's yours, do it the way you want. i really don't like people telling me how to build what i have.
