No, he said it was running and driving when he bought it.  He had just pulled the interior apart to redo it.  It had seats in it when he got it.  Maybe the radiator is tucked way down in front somehow?

 

 

Using an electric fan allows some creativity under the cavernous front fender wells.  However, instead of somewhat near ambient temperature being introduced to the radiator during engine operation, the radiator now sees preheated air from the engine compartment.  I suppose a larger radiator and multiple fans could possibly accomodate that though.  Just curious as the dickens at this point and always interested in unique solutions.

I think the radiator has been pulled and the way the hose is tucked you can't see the end of it.

While very artistic, and even visionary, someone needs a head slap for this in my humble opinion...😅

While it's nothing I'd ever consider doing, it is well executed and I can dig it...  ;)

Reminds me of some of the 60's Buick ads in which the convertible tops matched the dresses being worn by the models.

Could this be related to King’s “from a Buick 8”? I would caption this pic “from  la Migra in NY State”

I am going to guess that it is a 1958 Buick Caballero station wagon, or what is left of it. 

 

Are you offering what ever is left to anyone that needs parts?

Yes, that's what's left of the "parts car".

It was just a body shell on a bent frame, with a bunch of related parts piled inside.

And yes, I listed several items in the For Sale section.

Floors, rockers and roof are all gone to other project cars.

I don't think so; it's now down to a few large pieces and a nearly bare frame.
