Recently found this one in Aztell, Texas. Near Waco. It's a 64, flat metal dash and aluminum hood.
I have the hood strapped down because i didn't want to close it tight, because i wasn't sure i could open it again! It is still sitting on the trailer, in the garage.
Not too bad all around. sorry for the lack of focus - it was just dark enough that the shutter speed on the camera wasn't fast enough, but it didn't seem to want to use the flash.
Here's the other side. Those wheels are a little weird, but the tires are about a year old! Certainly the body could use some work, but it's a pretty solid car, and i think i got a really good deal on it.

Took a closer look at some of the engine compartment items today.
There may be some issues straightening out the wiring.
Hopefully I can figure it out.
This may be part of the issue - lets hope it still works!
These carbs will need some cleaning.
And some stock air filters put back on the car.

Starting to make a little progress. Here is the fan in primer.
And after almost a whole can of Schoolbus Yellow!

Nothing new here, just more detail shots as I hope to get back on this very soon!
Inside doesn't look too bad.
Seats are good.
Engine looks like it will need some more TLC!!! But it does turn over manually.
Here's the engine number. From what I have been told, this is a late 64, a 5 main. That's a good thing!
Some wiring to straighten out I think.
These are pretty unoriginal, but kind of period. For now they are staying.
More engine detail
Need some cleanup!

Needed a gas cap. It had a locking gas cap on it; no key. Ripped that one off, and found this one at a Pep Boys. Fits perfectly.
