      Well I did get all my front and rear suspension parts and a motor for the front seat. We'll see how much it cost to have the trash man take it away..
      Anyone need glass?

        Pearl needs a new passenger main window. I wonder if it would make it all the way to Oz in one peice?? My guess is it would get busted and cost a fortune to try and get it here. Can you hang on for a couple of days until Pearl arrives so I can see what type of glass she has?

        I am warming to Perla, EG, nice thought!

          What condition are the three chrome pieces on the steering wheel? I have a new horn ring, pretty nice center cap from a 60 but my chrome spikes are really pitted. If they are in fair condition I'll take them. With a small screwdriver you can gently pry them out. Closeup photo???

          note: The horn rings are fragile at the center hub and mine was broken at in several places. it cost me 140 for a repo where a good used one would have work for me. Its one of the things that might be worth hanging on to.

            Say....what kind of condition is that dash pad in?
            Could it be rolled up and shipped? I could use it as a pattern...

            The steering wheel is in better shape than Corals...what is that made out of anyway? the 'white stuff'

            Personally, if you can, I would hang onto any of the glass...windshields are a fortune if you can find them...

            Hum...didn't one of our new members need chrome pieces?

                  That would be me, but it doesn't look like that car would be any better than what I already have. My need is interior chrome trim. And the door handles are not so good.

                  A powersteering res. cap and the internals that hold the filter in place.

                  Isn't that a 58 door on it?

                  I need a front windscreen, last week a shop told me, 750 for a new one.

                      Not much is good on it.. chrome's all pitted door glass is gone.front window has a very small ding that could be fixed and rear glass is good.Steering wheel is good but will need to be painted.Horn ring is pitted.
                      All suspension is rusted but a good blasting and powder coating will fix.

                          Love the wagon wheels and the outline letter tire. LOL

                          Hold on - it has a passenger side mirror, that's not too common. Oh, and a trunk mounted antenna! It appears to be broken though. Is the mast replaceable?
