That car is going to cost a fortune to piece back together correctly.

...but for a race car/custom/whatever I think its great. You can't make it any worse. Wink

Have you seen the prices on doors and hoods lately?

Put it backtogether. Fix only what has to be fixed.

It looks rotten? $150K resto?

Looks like a T2 (late 57~59). I'm a 356 nut, so to me they're all worth saving!

Quick and dirty "Outlaw" if you can't flip it as is for a profit to someone willing to take on the challenge. I refer you to Eriks build and just how much it involves to do it right. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) and how much that is so wrong and can be hidden. Frown
