Also, the chrome pot metal is as perfect as you will find. The weather stripping is also nice and soft. Not dryed out.

Paul, did you ever resolve your brake vibration issue with this car? Or is frustration with that issue driving the sale?

Some of the stainless trim is out being straightened and polished. Is included with the car.

Jon, I replaced the metal brake line and removed and inspected the drums. Sanded the shoes with 40 grit and got several good stops but now is starting to shake again. Sure it just needs the shoes replaced with asbestos ones. Other than that the car drives and performs excellent. I have arthritis and it is just too difficult for me to do the repairs. The big deal is my hips are quite painful and the driving position is not good for me. Being 6'6 it's too tight a squeeze.

I recently had the pleasure of a ride in this car, to a 1957 Chinese restaurant for lunch a week ago. Paul was having some brake issue with the car, and it only appeared once while on this jaunt. Seemed somewhat minor, however, but it was the final straw for Paul, after repairing everything on the car the previous owner failed to do correctly. Other than the dogleg area on the lower RH front fender, the car appeared rust free, potmetal was near perfect on interior parts, which are usually pitted. Paul's descriptions can be trusted, he's one of the most honest guys I know,
