The paint on the body is original and has its imperfections but no, it's not hiding anything at all.  I don't want to make it seem like a trophy winning prize piece but the car was honestly stored from '84-'06 and is super solid.

It's going to need a front passenger tire and a tune. Right now my budget and time is being spent on the project car so no real amount of money from me is going to see this car unless I remotivated to keep it.  It would eventually need to get repainted in the future because it has crowes feet real bad (factory paint) on the passenger side.  My assumption is that the sun basically cooked it through a window for over 20 years in storage.

Okay I know I promised these earlier but these are the last pics at the body shop this week. Little more work than we though but its going to be mint. I am getting so excited and a bit scared that this thing is not going to be done in time, drop dead date is 7-23 cause the party is the night of 7-24. I see a couple of the projects infront of mine are starting to move out, they just finshed a '57 chevy and '68 cougar.
I have one delema and maybe you guys can help me out, like I said earlier hubby totaled this car out when it was about 8 mos. old and it did not have t tops, but the gold one he bought to replace it did and he liked them. (he is also 6'5" so the headroom probably was an issue) His original 1st new car did not have t top's, should I or should I not put them in this one? Even if he liked them do you think it will take away from trying to give him his first new car back if I change it in any way?

if it doesnt have them, i'd just leave it alone. t-tops are cool and suck all at the same time.
