Forgive me if my question seems a bit dumb.. while I’ve owned may cars I’ve never owned one before 1949. I understand older cars were metal over wood frames, if I have it correctly.. I’m looking at maybe buying a car from this era. What do I look for to tell me if the body needs lots of expensive work prior to making any offer?
My guess would be how snug the doors are, and if the panels line up right ..any more information would be appreciated..
The second part to this question is how reliable are they (v8)?? So are parts to keep them running difficult to locate? Are are they fairly bullet proof? She’s running right now.
