we had to use the trailer winch and a skid loader to get it up on the trailer. If I would of kept dragging it with the winch I think it would have broke all the way in half. Got a lot of good parts out of this car though. Put the disc brakes on my 71. The 351c 2v Motor and fmx trans went into a 68 mustang. 9 inch rear went into a 32 ford coupe. Someone on here got the shock tower braces, and a lot of misc. parts. So this old convertible lived on in many other cars!!! The spark plug wires fell apart in my hands, but I replaced a few of them with some old ones laying around, put some fuel down the carb, ran a line to a gallon jug of gas and it fired right up and sounded great!You ought to be knighted by this forum for that photo - it is the one undeniable piece of proof that convertible frame rail rust is a serious problem.One of my old parts cars. Wife was happy to see me bring this home LOL!!!
Perfect to show every gold-digging rustbucket convertible owner out there...
