Default 58 Parts Car

If you are going to do another squarebird the price you paid for this one will pale in comparison to what it will cost to round of parts for another one.

I do not know if you have the space, but I personally would part it out and strip every good piece from the bird and then send the carcass or take it to the scrap metal yard.

Squarebird parts are getting harder and harder to find. I have parted out several 58's and do not throw anything out anymore until there is absolutely nothing useful left. Then there is always something useful left.

Good Luck with whatever decision you make.

Unfortunately what you have experienced is not unusual for the squarebird bodies.

I know I could probably get more if I were to part her out, But I just donít have the time and the space for all that.

Iíll be happy if I get what I have spent on her back and she goes to a good home.

Ideally the new owner would be someone with a garage with lots of tools, patience and excellent metal fabrication skills.

I would really like to walk away from this knowing that my 58í is better off going to a better home than she would have been, if I never crossed paths with her.

In a long enough timeline we donít really own these cars; weíre merely good stewards for the time there with us. If we can save a car from going to the scrapper, or pass it along in just a little bit better condition than we found it, than we did a good deed in doing our part in preserving a piece of automotive history.

This has got to be the best quote I have seen for a long time! Thanks Marcelo
