here she is was found resting in a junk yard about an hour from my place. A friend of mine bought her to restore but i made him an offer he couldn't refuse. I traded my 1952 chevrolet 5 window truck for her. He even delivered her for me and gave my a bunch of parts he was gathering up for the resto. She is in worse shape then i thought as the floor plans and trunk floor are completely shot as well as the inner and outer rockers on both sides. [img][/img][img][/img][img][/img][img][/img]

Great car, looking forward to seeing some restoration pics! Sure, she's in rough shape now, but she could be fixed. In fact, she could be really tough Smile Cool

Thanks everyone I've always wanted one of these cars ever since I first saw the movie. I got a ton of extra parts with her. I got 2 extra hoods another front bumper, the stainless steel for the stripe down the side, 2 original service manuals, 3 grilles 8 sets of taillights, 7 sets of hubcaps and fiberglass bumper wings. the parts go on and on. Hope to get her home to our new house so i can start to work on her again. [img][/img][img][/img][img][/img]

Fantastic! One more great project added to the forum. Looking forward to you slowly bringing her back to her original beauty. Good trade!!
The fiberglass wings will look great once you get them plated. Besides...a set of good originals are in the two thousand area now. Shocked If you find them.
