This body needs to be in the hands of a restorer!
No relation to seller, just spreading the word.
There used to be a guy in Mount Shasta, CA who would take classic sedans and build open car replacement bodies--period correct, but complete reproductions. Maybe this is the remains of one of those "conversions."
What are the odds of ever finding a chassis to mate to that body?
I forwarded this to my mom, she's the treasurer of the national Marmon Club of America.
I just met a guy who can fabricate everything needed for that car or just about any early vehicle - in the same fashion and manner as back in the day that it was created.
I hope it goes to a Marmon restorer. The downside is no one might not want it. The more rarer cars and their remains often go unidentified and forgotten and just rust away. Hopefully this body can be used for parts or restored.
I just hope it doesn't get to the hands of a "rat rod" builder.......
It doesn’t matter who builds what out of any car body -.as long as it sees Life Continued.
Anything is better than the Junkyard.
Unless someone has access to unlimited funds - not everything can be as it was .....
If someone is caught chopping the top he should be kicked very hard is his rearend. I have seen some good, restoreable vehicles rat-rodded. A friend of mine took a running driving '31 Huppmobile sedan and stripped the suspension and running gear, hauled it all to the scrap yard, installed a Mustang front, 10 bolt GM rear and smallblock Chevy. Then decided to sell the car. Guess what. No takers.
I realize if one has the money to buy a vehicle then they have the freedom to do as they want, but it's a shame to see what is done to some vintage vehicles.
And it is back with a lower price!!!
