Some things that might need attention:Speedometer doesn't work as Ford never offered a 3.25 rear end gear, so the turtle gear is always going to make the speed off.Oil pressure and temp gauge don't work, temp needs new red fluid tube and I'm guessing that an oil pressure switch might make oil pressure gauge work.Car could really use a new radiator.Transmission pops out of second gear, but when held in gear drives fine. Drop in your 39 top loader trans and you would be good to go.Someone over the years converted the car from a trunk to rumble seat, in doing so the body work around the corners has cracked and on one side has actually chipped off. (see pics) And because of the blister in the trunk floor the springs for the rumble seat base need to be modified to function as a seat.Has new wiring for the dual horns, but because of the Buick steering wheel there is no provision for a horn button, a remote button under the dash would solve this problem.Bottom corner of the chrome windshield is rusted thru.
This is not a show car, its a driver that plenty of character.
