  1. Hi kaycee. Thanks for your reply, have already contacted the club, have had a reply advicing me that my email has been forwarded to a member that should be able to help. My problem was that I couldn't find anything much about the model and with the amount of work needed I don't think guessing is the way to go. I'm a better carpenter an a metal shaper provided I can find info it could be a goer, I'm told that all the wood has gone, for what reason I don't know, perhaps its changed hands a few times?? At present no history but I suspect it is known by the right people?? Have asked the question about the seat frames thinking they would be metal but they are not there, so would that be because the floor has rotted out or been removed?? lots of questions and maybe's but at least I am now getting some responce. From what I have found so far am I correct in thinking that the floor would have been White Oak. Have you any idea if detailed specifications of sizes and materials is available? All the best for 2011, lets hope its good to us all. Thanks.
  2. Hi Guys I'm Tom, home is Barnstaple, Devon, which is South West, UK. I am trying to find as much information about the model 68 3 window Coupe before viewing one with the intention to purchase. This is what I know about the particular car. I would discribe it as a barn find. It is said to be 85% complete and I have only seen a very poor photograph of it that I can't reproduce. The wood work is completely gone, there is no roof structure or fabric, the seat frames are gone. The side mounts are missing but only the wheels, radiator shell is there without cores. It stands on 4 wheels, body work and chassis are sound, all doors truck lid and hood with side panels are there, dashboard is complete. the engine, gearbox and drive train are thought to be rebuildable, there is very little rust and does not need any replacement panels. There are no documents or import papers but the seller states that it his property to dispose of. I'm looking for a worthwhile project to undertake after retirement and thought this may fit the bill. Have always tinkered with cars and feel I have the ability to undertake a restoration project. Thanks for looking and hope you can help.
