    sell it to the guy who is making the 32 ford 5 window bodies in china. He might make these there too and sell these as a pedal car kit

    I'd find out what it's worth before I painted it. Sometimes pieces are worth a crapload untouched no matter how bad they look and aren't worth anything if you refinish them. I was watching antiques roadshow and thought this one lady was going to slit her wrists when she found out what her piece would have been worth had she not refinished it. :eek:

    That is really something special, what a great find, I hope you leave it just the way it is and stare at it once in a while.

    Wow, that's wicked cool. If I were you I'd never paint it, leave it as it is. It's still cool as-is and if someday you or your kids want to sell it it'll be worth more in original condition.
  10. I'm digging the idea of a frame around it and glass on top for a coffee table. Add me to the list to buy a copy...that's what I'd do with mine and put it in the waiting room in my office. :) Cool find George!!
  11. Very cool. Paint it!
  12. I'd cover it in saran wrap, spray a couple of heavy coats of mold release on it, cover it with that rubber roof paint, then build a rough female mold... peel out the saran wrap, and made a plaster of paris shell, fill it with expanding urethane foam... and finish the outside of the plaster smooth and paint it... THEN make a REAL female mold and pop out a limited edition of 10.

    Keep one, then sell one to me to make a pedal car.

    Don't change it, real collectors item. Take it to Hershey next October, and find out what it's really worth.

    I was wondering what Moriarity would do with it! To bad he can't be turned loose with one.

    Yeah it would be cool original but you would be cooler in some flake and a ton of chrome. Post 1000! Hell yeah!
