I did a complete ground up restoration of my 59 Sport
Fury and it took 10 years, 5 parts cars and another
15'X4' sheet of new metal to complete it. I started
with much more than what is left of "Miss Belvedere.
Yes she could be restored but the cost would be out of
sight, and with so many parts from donor cars that she
would not be "Miss Belvedere" but a car of many
donated parts. I feel it's best to leave her alone as
a complete car, even being what she is now. What a
shame for such a beautiful car to have been so
