I found this car a year ago May on a trailer in Idaho.  It had not been on the road in 15 years.  The car was originaly all white but someone had painted the top a light pink.  Interior was rodent nesting material - carpets were gone, etc.  Paint was covered with surface rust which all rubbed out.  There are a few places where I had to touch up the paint, and I had a restoration shop paint the Gold for me.  All pitted chrome was replaced and an all new interior installed, headliner to carpet.  New tires and deluxe wheel covers.  The engine has a new cam and bearings, new rod bearings and mains.  Crank was ground.  All surfaces .010, new HD oil pump and rebuilt carburetor.  Under carriage: A previous owner evidently work for a paving company.  I spent much time digging asphalt from the underside, hence no rust.  The car is equipped with a radio and a clock, no power steering or brakes.  It does have a padded dash and visors.  The windshield is cracked, all other glass is good.
