The gentleman I got it off had a trailer FULL of parts he "inherited" from another old collector when he bought some land:
Got it home and pulled it off the trailer (which wasn't pretty due to not having a ramp)..
Upon further inspection, I found it came with several antique cans and bottles. Maybe some will make it into the final build...
Good front suspension, complete with I-beam, wishbones and steering links:
Rear end turns easily, tho the old banjo won't likely make it into the final iteration!
To find very little - and I mean very little - rust under it all! Amazing.
The undercowl gas tank is also in good shape - no leaks!
I removed the rotting wooden box, again to find little rust underneath..
The wooden battery cover seems to have survived - unless it was rebuilt at some point..
Even our cat, Bubbles is getting into it!
