Car has been inside and not on the road since 1967.  It has some rust in the center trunk pan that is getting soft, also the lower rear quarters of the car have been repaired at one time.  The rocker panels have also been replaced and the inner rockers are rusted.  Radiator support is rusted as is the battery tray.  Car rolls easily but both rear brake drums were cut off due to being seized.  Floor panels and frame are all good and solid.  It's missing both front parking light lenses, and some of the rear taillight lenses are broken and cracked.  Car has no title, although a bonded title from the State of WI is available for an extra fee of $300-500.  This car is a great candidate for restoration as not many of these were made or are left.
