Rocker Panels
Ready to be restored   Price: 2500
I bought this car in the mid '80. It ran and probably would again if cleaned up. The breaks needed repair. I took it to a couple of shops and all said they were afraid to put it up on lifts because it was a convertible and the rocker panels were rusted too badly. After a lot of shopping I found after market panels but I didn't know how to weld them in. For over 50 years the car has been waiting for me to learn how to weld. I'm now 73 and have finally admitted to myself that it ain't going to happen.
After welding in the rocker panels and doing other minor body work, it should be read to be on the road again. Of course, you'll need a new top but the convertible mechanics work and the rear glass windows is present without any cracks. The tires are completely dry rotted and won't hold air.
