    From the sound of it…you better have a Lot of time, patience and “rust removal’ knowledge ( tools,shop,smarts)to even get it to the point of, then, addressing the motor-trans- chassis. Even the old photos looked nasty.Check out the Mustang project they’re doing at a pro-body shop.

    Just curious, is the chassis as bad as the rest of the car? Man, that’s not a project, it’s an adventure! God Bless whoever takes that deal on! Does anyone know whatever happened to the Fiberglass car and chassis? That would be the car to restore. ………….Mikey 😆

    When it was “free to a good home” I could have done something, but now I’ve sold off all the part’s I had to put this together. All of these “Dover cars” need someone to step up and save them even if it’s only a rolling display. And I’m still looking to do a magazine article about the surviving “Dover” cars all of them.

    When I mentioned the” Free to Billy Coleman ” reference …He said He didn’t know who Billy was and doesn’t remember anyone coming to see it. I’ll sort that out and get an idea of what he sees as a ‘reasonable offer.’
