Looks like you have your work cut out for you! Better check your title against the serial numbers. The vent in the middle of the dash, slotted wheels, hazard light switch and what's left of the broken horn ring says 66.

65 would have had no vent in the middle of the dash, solid wheels, no hazard lights and a horn system similar to what you have, only without the missing ring.

That car is too nice to part out. Find some fenders, sand it down to the original paint, and cruise it. Also, put that glove box someplace before it gets crushed! Cool

HUH ?? did you see the front apron?? and the rear quarter panel.. both are smashed.. not to mention the rust .. and what we cant see..

i dont think a new front fender will even bolt up with the way that front apron looks..

hhmmmm.. JR. LBR..

p.s. look at the secon picture... notice by the persons elbow you see the door gap.. look how its closed at the top, but open at the bottom.. pressure from the impact poped the door.. that meens the front clip needs work too..

Think

Don't get me wrong..its hammered, but not beyond repair by any means. All depends on what he able to do himself vs. farming work out. If he just wants a driver, and aprons and fenders are the worst of it, he's in great shape.

Jack the car up and examine the typical rust cancer areas, such as heater channels and pans. Look under the battery and the front spare tire well.

That will determine just how salvageable the car is unless your good at body repair.

These things help make your postings more a little more enjoyable and easily read: .,?!

You'll find them at various locations on your keyboard. BTW, good luck with your new project. It looks like you have your work cut out for you.

Ok, now we see punctuation. Capitalization will help too.

Looks like a good project. Yes, more pictures.

Does it have 1300 script on the deck lid?

Are you going to hang on to that radio? I'm looking for one to fill the hole in my 66's dash.
