Why would anyone remove and/or replace a body that appears as nice as this one, even though it is the wrong color? I'm not a fan of speedsters or hacks and I hope it doesn't become a street rod. The buyer and seller can do as they wish.

"wrong color" is being polite.

It must be nice to have a shop that clean with that much room....

Marv,

I'm a little spooked by it. Looks suspicious to me. :-)

I agree Jerry....something doesn't pass the smell test.

This looks like sheetmetal about to be placed on a car in a restoration shop.

You don't suppose that's a picture of a model, say 1/24 or 1/25 scale? If so the stuff in the background is miniature too, I suppose. Or trick photography?

Jerry,Don, Tommy, you got it all wrong. They took the drivetrain to put a late model body on it. It has a 66 chevell body now.
Looks like a good deal if body is as nice as it looks.

Looks like a good deal to me- blue or not.

I know where it came from too. He wanted to build a speedster and found a nice touring with a Fronty, Buffaloes, Warford, and Ruckstell for far less than assembling one from scratch, so now there is a nice body with a good top and upholstery and paint for sale at less than it would cost to fix your own.

Guys, this is hilarious. Jeff Hood is correct; I bought this about a month ago for the sole purpose of using the chassis, Fronty, Buffaloes, and Ruckstell, but I had no use for the body, because I am putting a PACO on the chassis.

I was told that this car was pieced together about 35 years ago with original parts, (The body is original) so I am not dismantling an original car. I wish I was smart enough to do trick photography, but I'm not! The car is in Santa Maria CA if anybody wants to take a look at it. car when i purchased it march 17dismantling it in my new hobby shop march 22chassis in northern california getting fitted for new PACO body april 2

Wow, wish I could afford it, easy way to a finished T! Uh, might be the pics, but isn't that a high hood job?

the new hood will slant down to a low radiator

thank you for posting info about this being an assembled car....nothing sadder then destroying an original car, no matter the make, or how many were made...I consider this a respectable progression in the life of this car. hope to see photos of finished project. Good luck !
