Bought as a family project, we are going to restore this car in stages, beginning with mechanical.  The engine is in overall good condition with great compression.  A front end rebuild,, rear end rebuild, brakes, tune up and other misc repairs will be completed to get her roadworthy again.  After mechanical, rust repair and body work will begin
