  1. 1969 Chevelle SS 396 Convert

    Highly desirable car to many who prefer originality and documentation. The large auctions would be the place to get top dollar. There can be a huge difference in price if you aren't exposed to the right audience.
  2. 1937 Model 48: RESTORATION HAS BEGUN! (Photo)

    Good work Gary. I will be transferring an almost new headliner from my parts car to my project car. Hopefully the cuts already made will line up--I don't see why they wouldn't, but you know how that goes sometimes.
  3. 39 special, not mine $2850

    I guess we all have different definitions of very little rust lol. If the deck kid is rusted through, I can’t imagine what the tool tray / trunk and interior floors look like.
  4. Is this car worth buying as an investment?

    Investment in money, not at all. There are virtually no cheap cars that are good monetary investments. Investment in getting into a fun hobby and learning about old cars, yes-as better stated by trimacar.

    Gary, what sound deadening material are you going to use?
  6. My "new" 1941 Buick Roadmaster 71

    Looks like a simply great old car to me! I like your approach to making it what you want it to be and actually using it. It looks like the most comfortable car on the road just sitting there.
  7. My flywheel cover too was a favorite of the mice.
  8. 1940 buick gas tank

    Nobody makes tanks for 1939’s, so I purchased a new 1939 Chevy tank with the same dimensions and made it work with a little custom work. Just an idea.

    Thanks Danny, still some time before all the body work and paint is done-maybe a year or 2. My signature doesn't have any text at all related to that photo. I actually tried deleting my signature completely and redoing it, but when I linked the restoration back to it, that picture of some other car pulls back up...???
  10. 280z’s came in turbo and non-turbo versions.
  11. With the existence of places like this and you tube, its never been a better time to jump right in!

    Update, brick done today

    Putting the glass in is just so tedious and can be incredibly frustrating if you let it be. Nice!

    I agree 100%, but as someone who is currently restoring a car that was in marginally better shape than this one, it would have to find the perfect home. I hope it does. Unless a person does 100% of the labor themselves and skips out on some rechroming, it would be make no financial sense at all to restore this car. Of course, we all know that already. It needs to find a home where interest is immense, and finances are an afterthought.

    Since it states complete, that means they have the sidemount parts somewhere. Those alone would be easier to sell and are worth half of the $2500 asking price (and actually more than the sum of the car). This car is a much better parting out candidate. Sell parts until you get to $2500, if that's the target, and then figure out the rest. Then again, maybe someone nearby has always wanted a 1940 Limited and wants to learn about these cars as they tinker with taking it apart on their own time. Trying to be positive. Between the horn ring, hood ornament, trim, fender lights, mechanical parts, etc there are plenty of desirable parts on there.
