Re: [GFS] WHY THE SPRINGS BROKE ON MISS BELVEDERE



I don't think it would be all that much work.
The soft parts were destroyed, but the body looked pretty solid to me.
Notice that the trim is intact and the eyebrows do not appear to be 
rusted.
If It was a rust bucket, the trim would have fallen off. 
If you want to see rust buckets, I have 2 58 fury bodies that can 
demonstrate that real well.
A good pressure washing would be a start.
but I don't think that will happen, a museum will buy it and keep it 
as is.
