Got lucky and picked this up recently for cheap - virtually rust free except for the trunk floor and spots on the rockers. Got to love these dry-climate cars! There is no drivetrain, front mid-bumper, or rear bumper but otherwise its pretty complete. Three or four trim parts are missing, most noteably all but one piece of the rear window trim. Otherwise most of the removed parts were stuffed inside. Yellow and white would have been a real pretty car when new

One of my favorite '50s color combinations. Congrats! It's going to look great

Yes, Royal actually. There is nothing but a bare interior now. Imagine a car where every part was completely disassembled except the body panels and suspension and then everything thrown loosely back into the trunk and interior. I've already cleaned everything out, gone through and sorted and packed it away.

looks like the beginning of a restoration that was never completed.

<p>Neat find! Good luck with it, you are lucky to find one so solid after all these years! Now starts the search for missing parts!</p>
