Yes, want to remove some of the body taper to keep it as small as possible, but still fit in the hemi and get some shoulder room.zuffen wrote: ↑Sun Mar 05, 2023 8:10 am Apart from the termite damage the car looks to be in really good condition with very straight panels. The grille especially as it would be a proper bastard to repair.
Would you try and remove some of the body taper?
Will you try and start the engine. if it turns over freely it would be too tempting for me to not try.
Tempting to start it for sure as would increase the value when come time to sell it. They are a pretty weird setup though and wouldn't want to seize it trying either!
For the last 60 years left outside and been through a grass fire and then used as yard art, pretty good overall! Just a bit of rust in the bottom of both cowls and the bottom of the tub at the rear.
