I found this brat in a barn when we recently started a heavy highway project in north Texas. Discovered original buyer still owned the car but he died 18 months after purchase with under 12,000 miles. I tracked down his grandkids and offered $500. It was covered up with 2 small rust marks in the cab, a few dents and scratches from having equipment on top of it for 30 years and most all the rubber throughout was brittle. I hooked up a new battery and poured fuel down the carb and ....waalaa! It not only fired up but it idled. I never restored a car before but when too muddy to work, I put a crew on it. We are nearly done with all body,paint, interior and will be pulling the engine to rebuild within the month.
