This is the way I bought my '55 in 2000. It was sitting in a garage since 1980 a few miles for my home. Someone tried to start on it but never finished. I stripped it. Bagged and tagged everything. Finally sent it to the 1st paint shop he had it 2 yrs and all I got back was a car in primer. It sat in a heated garage for another year and a half. Thinking I'm never going to get this car painted I found a paint shop willing to work with me and my budget and within 3 weeks he called and said it was ready to pick it up. Didn't know if I should cry or be happy.lol. But after 6 yrs since I bought her here she is on the trailer ready to be brought back to life. I'll keep you posted. Sorry about the quailty of pics.
