Interior shots of the white 'Bird taken today after a quick blast of the air gun. I believe new headliner and carpet would bring the interior to driver level.

The rat fouling of this engine was nowhere as extensive at that in the black car. Although the engine bay had dirt accumulated everywhere, the rats confined their excretory activity to the intake manifold. I did have to dig the stuff out with a screwdriver with the nozzle of a running shop vac an inch away.

I now have verified that this engine also can be rotated with a breaker bar and socket, so I will not be surprised if it, too, answers the starter's call after the Mystery Oil treatment and new plug wires.

Unless I later find significant rust damage underneath the car, I expect to keep this white one and sell the other two.

Finally, shots of the '62 from a couple of days ago after I got it out of weeds and ready to load. Note the old analog bagged cellphone left on the front passenger seat and the missing fender skirts leaned against the back seat.

The coupe now reposes on a trailer in my back 1/2-acre lot.

No engine shots yet due to an ineffective hood release and shortage of time to work around it.

When I signed on to the site I was unsure of which section in which to post these stories.

Since I'm driving none of them and won't be for some time, I'm going to cease posting in this section.

If, during my work on these cars, I encounter or generate information useful to site members, I will post it in the appropriate technical section.

It's amazing that all three of your cars still have the fender skirts. Usually they are long gone when cars are left out in the open.

John I agree with you. Perhaps they are still on as most don't know how they come off properly
