This beautiful vehicle has a very solid body and floors.  There are minor deflections in chrome trim and body, but NO FILLER!  All interior and interior trim, dash, and gauges are there including the bows for the headliner, but all needs reworked.  Original wheels and centers!  This vehicle has never been abused; just sitting idle.
  $6,000

...except for the vent window on the front passenger door.  A new vent window can be easily cut out and put in.

Sliding key lock covers on driver door, passenger door, and trunk lid!  Awesome!

Close-up of the awesome lady hood ornament!  It is in excellent condition, but there is some oxidation.  Please excuse the glare in the photo.

This inside-the-trunk photo is to show that it has solid body and floors.  By the way, what a huge trunk!

Please excuse the glare in the above two photos.  These show the stylish dash chrome.  There's so much chrome inside this car it could glow in the dark!

This is the worst area of the interior.  All cosmetic work, though.  The springs in all the seats are still great, but the seats themselves need some serious upholstery work.  The back seat is in much nicer condition.  The floors are solid, but they do need covering.  The door panels are poor all the way around, but everything for the doors is still here including all the cranks.  Everything for the interior is here.  Big and roomy on the inside!  Lots of space for friends when you take it to the next car show!

We are located in Dysart, Iowa.  Please contact us if you have any questions or if you would like to see additional photos.
