Gotcha Gotcha.
Currently it's apart and ready for paint. If I can get the trans linkage and carb straightened out, should be heading out by next weekend. I have a full new interior for it. It'll be dark smoke gray mettallic, similar to the new Ford Magnetic Gray Metallic.

Welcome and congrats on finding what looks like a solid project. I like you're wheel and tire combination. What brand wheel and tire size?

Yeah, I used to literally live about 2 min from it. Now I'm about 15. I've never been in there, and thought it was possibly closed. Maybe I need to stop in and see what they have.

Actually just checked their facebook page. Said as of 2018 they are closed. But still have some inventory of parts.
