Here it was the day a trailered it home. All I had to do was clean the points and the engine started right up. It ran beautifully. It didn't smoke at all.

The gray is primer that was used by the previous owner to cover the areas that he sandblasted. The tall grass in this picture is actaully hiding big rust areas.

The trunk is shown here filled with parts. Once emptied it was easy to see why people used to sneak into drive-in movies hiding in the trunk. Four people could fit in there !

Here are the parts that make up the nose.

Here's the back seat area. Everything is in excellent condition.
