I started working on this car in 2004 after it sat since 1965 on my grandfather's farm, and even though I've been a member on this forum for close to a decade I've not posted a whole lot about this car. Well today I received initial pictures from the body shop that's painting the car and it's time to start sharing. Car is "Fleet White" over "Tango Red" and it looks to be pretty straight. Much much more to come when I get the car home and finally start getting the last of the car together.

Jon, it looks like you're making nice progress - I can't wait to see it up at Gus's when it's finished! Regarding your glass, did you have to replace the windshield in the car? If so, who was the source?

Front and rear windshields are original. Make room at Gus' next to all those DeSotos!

Car body is sanded and buffed, as are doors and deck lid. The front clip should be done and back on the car in the next week or two!

I didn't realize that the gas tank filler is under the right rear fender tip at least it looks like it in the pics.

Correct, push a button concealed in the backup light housing and the quarter end hinges out of the way.
