Hi all,

Some of you may remember when I bought this car from a guy in San Antonio. It showed up at one of the Texas shows in 2008, I believe. Pictures of it next to Bill Stonbergs '47 are in a Bugle that year.

It came up for sale in the spring of 2009, and I jumped in and bought it. I have driven it around some. Actually drove it home from Texas. But mostly , it took a back seat to my Special. Well, I decided to clean it up a little. A lot of elbo grease and a lot of 600 wet/dry sandpaper later, this is what it looks like. Also some before pics for comparison.

Good work, Ben. Another way to treat the rust bleeding through the paint is to use a mild phosphoric acid product such as Sanivac or Ospho. Get a couple of Mexican or Indian blankets and you are all set.

The AutoColorLibrary isn't showing the color which I believe it is, that being Niagra Green. Can you share a picture of the data plate Ben.

trim 50 = Green leather

paint 17-1 = Niagara Green and I suspect the 1 means the wheels were painted the optional color which was Dante Red. Is there evidence of this. I think it would look sharp if so.
