The amazing thing is there are folks out there who can take that car and have it in show room condition a year from now.

It is not amazing that I am not one of them folks.

Ouch WELL DAVEW, this is your back yard. I think your club should take a long look at this one. The potential is there, but the coins may be tough to locate. Get your list ready, CARLISLE is just aching to assist in carrying  the parts to your trailor.   Mark

I thought the tell tale "WaterLine" was very interesting.
"Waterline" you know when you get a flood the high water mark is always left behind to see how high the water actually did rise.
Well this shows just the opposite, look at the "Sunk" lines on the rims and it shows how far in the dirt this thing was buried. I'm surprised that the frame is even there!
I once found a 67 camaro in a barn lean to, it was sunk right down to the frame where as you could not open the doors! car was perfect from that body point up.
"Seems like only yesterday I parked dat dare Vette in da barn"LOL  Wow what a shameCry

Yeah, I'm 6'2". I don't think I could even fit into an original, but this, hey, a little rust out, a little, "build from scratch with similar body panels", hey, you never know. I might make it work. Gotta be worth....at least ....a small fortune Big smile.

The old solid axle cars are a lot bigger that ya might think. John Wayne actually had one...a '53 or '54. Soooo...iffin da DUKE could fit in it, I'm sure you could...
Go for it, Jimmy!! A little soap/water, a little elbow grease, and some wax....shoot, you'd be cruizin in no time....Thumbs Up

the pink slip if it comes with one is worth more than the car, there are two 54's here in town, if it was a 53 skys the limit, when I was 7yrs old I was into models and my dad brought home a model of the new 1953 corvette, the large one, can't remember what ever happened to it. anips2009-07-29 21:50:55

I am kind of a sucker for a project, but even I might have sense enough to stay away from this one.

I think the title of the auction "project car" is an understatement. I took me 8 weeks to find enough time to change a transmission. I dont think I have enough years in me for this one

[QUOTE=Ebay seller]SHIPPING UPDATE! – When you check out there are usually 2 or more shipping options. The one shown ( usually UPS ) is not the one you HAVE to choose, USPS is usually an option on most smaller items. Please take the time to look at your invoice. Where the shipping company and price are listed, a menu will drop down with other shipping options. PLEASE LOOK AT THIS. UPS IS USUALLY 1st ON THE LIST. BUT WE DO SHIP USPS AS WELL.

And...
Due to the increasing cost of packaging materials, items are subject to a $0.50 handling fee. Use this map as a guide for package time in transit. Some shipments will take longer than the map indicates.

Looks like they're gonna stick it in an envelope, and mail it!
