Really neat find! I hope they don't ruin it by restoring it so that it looks like all the other over polished old

Corvette's.

I had a friend in Florida that bought a 1955 T-Bird with

8000 miles in 1967. He kept it driveable and pretty until it got up to 13,000 miles then parked it about 1984. About 3 years ago his widow decided to sell it. When I looked at it agian after 20 years in dry storage, the upholstery and all the rubbber was hard as a rock and the carpet had turned to dust. A fine example of an original car but in real need of lots of love & attention.

The intersting thing was seeing the lack of detail under the hood where pinch welds still looked like pinch welds and

paint was flat and thin, not from age, but because it was a

production Ford that couldn't live up to today's restoration standards.

I love seeing the real cars in as found condition. In fact I still drive my 1935 Ford Pickup that way. Some car guys hate it because it's rough, but to me it's still a good used truck.

For more great "Barn Find" stories see Tom Cotter's book

Cobra In The Barn.
