THIS IS NOT A ORIGINAL CONVERTIBLE
ITS A CHOP TOP RAT ROD!
I Bought This Car in a Estate Auction
With the Roof Already Cut Off and
Someone Was Making A Full Time Convertible
Out of This Car.
I Bought It Because of How Good the Body Was
and Original Paint Was a Plus.
I Just Sprayed Three Coats of Clear
on the Original Paint To Save the Patina Look.
The Guy That Was Selling the Cars
Out of his Collection Told Me
That This Was A Running Car
But It Had Been Several Years
Since They Fired It Up.
I Wasn't Too Worried About it
Running or Not.
I thought it would make a nice
summertime, spring and fall weather convertible
to put a bone stock GM Crate 350 with
a 700 Overdrive Transmission in it
for more highway driving and
would be a cheap little setup for this car and
it would be a dependable ratrod cruiser
that you wouldn't have much invested in and
you wouldn't have to worry about stuff
If a person wanted there are
several companies that make soft tops
for these cars if you wanted one.
I wasn't worried about it.
The interior needs work
but the original seat frames are under
the indian blankets so you can get the seats
recovered to look better and make
some doorpanels to cover
would dress it up.
The Front Floorboards and Trunk Pan
Need Replacing in Areas but
The Rear Looks Fine.
I've seen people lay street signs
all over the floor and it makes a cool floorboard
in these cars.
The Body is Nice Except for A Few Little Bitty Holes
on the Upper Rear Bumper Filler to Body
and a Dent on the Passenger Side Rear Fender
Under the Front of It and
I think the Driver Rear has one like it too.
This type of look on this car is perfect and
I wouldn't fix anything I would just spend the money
on the powertrain.
I took out 3 Leaf Springs in the Rear
To Get the Lowered Look and
If Someone Wanted to Add Them Back
I have them and the front coil springs have
never been touched.
I just lowered the rear to give it that kinda GASSER LOOK!
All the Brakes will need to be gone through and
Replaced and The Car needs some better tires.
The ones on it are dry rotted.
Overall I think this little coupe will make someone
a really cool and unique car to play around with
and could be a cheap attention getter
to cruise and hit some car shows or whatever in.
I HAVE A CLEAR TEXAS TITLE AND
NO THIS CAR DOES NOT RUN RIGHT NOW
BUT WAS SAID TO BE A RUNNING CAR
BUT WHO KNOWS!
