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.
