This car has been sitting around since the late 1960's when it was abandoned at a local repair shop.  Someone took it in for repairs and never came back to get it.  It sat in the back corner of the shop for 20 years and then outside on a farm for about ten years.  I bought the car 10 years ago with hopes of restoring it.  I have had it stored inside since I have had it.  I was able to obtain a title through the sherriff's office.

The car is in need of a complete restoration after being parked for 40 years.  The motor is stuck, the tires are rotten, it's missing some trim and the driver's door glass is broken.  The interior is showing its age.  It has some rust in the rockers and a very small amount of rust in the floors.  It has some Bondo covering old body work.  I have a pair of fender skirts that should fit with a little modification.  The odometer reads 25000 miles - I think it has 125000.
