This car has not been restored. It is original and was used up until the late 1940's when it was parked for reasons unknown. It sat in an Oregon barn, untouched until some time in the 1970's when the children of the owner decided to push it outside and take the fenders off to "help" dad with restoring the car. Needless to say, dad was unimpressed and it was put right back where it was, this time with the fenders sitting on top of the car, where dad had angrily tossed them. It then sat until last year.
It has a surprisingly straight and rot-free body. Please look at the photos, it is an accurate representation of what the car is: Honest, straight forward and impressively preserved. It is not rusty/rotten, etc.
The paint wears surface patina that cannot be bought or manufactured. The interior is somewhat tattered from the years of sitting and likely from various critters along the way, but it is mostly intact. The driver's side door is missing it's glass.
Another unique thing about this coupe is the amount of aftermarket accessories it received during the short time it was on the road. Hasslers, Clymer windshield spotlight, fender brace, etc.
The engine turns over by hand, I have not attempted to start it.
I do not have a title.
This car probably should be preserved in it's original condition, made to run and enjoyed (in my opinion) that was my plan for it, but I have too many toys and no room for it.
This coupe really has a certain charm to it.. Perfectly imperfect and with a sense of honesty that is really cool and unique. I wish I could keep it, but there are cars higher on the food chain for me that have bumped this sweetheart of a coupe. It will make someone a really great car.
Located near Portland, Oregon.
It looks like only two photos posted and it isn't seeming to allow me to post more at this moment. I will upload them if/when it allows me to. Otherwise, email me and I can send more.
I'm sorry a couple of those went through sideways. At any rate..
Sold, pending payment.
