It’s not a bad looking car to start with, but it does have some typical old-car issues. It seems to run pretty good, but we’ll be performing a complete evaluation of the engine when we get further into the project.
There is kind of an interesting take on the stripe, the painter only pinstriped above the main stripe and not below.
It also seems to have a weird angle in the front.07/23/2015 at #6129

A quick walk around the body reveals some panel misalignment, and we suspect there is some rust hiding below the paint.
Don’t swat the fly…
The wing gap is a little strong for our taste.
Some of the trim is mushed…
The quarters have had patch panels installed. In this shot, we see one of the best exhaust exits of all-time.
