I ended up gutting and bracing the body shell and throwing the rest, it was to far gone to restore rust wise, the chassis/driveline i gave away.
Looking outside i can see her, sittin in primer and under cover, she's wild, channeled deep over a GM floorpan/chassis , has a vintage V8 auto combo, a restored 56 interior with a 3ft shifter and is customised in a 60's semi-custom style like all my rides. I must add her exhaust note is purr-fect.
I guess, one mans trash is certainly another mans treasure.
When can I come pick her up Gregg?
Stepto, you lucky SOB! The horn ring is undamaged and the dash looks mint! how cool. To top it off the grill is pristine! OMG!!
Not that I'm jealous at all
I still miss my 52 like crazy, hopefully one day I will be able to build something or buy something to replace her.
