Barn find! Looks like it was protected from weather with all that dust accumulated on it. It might shine up nice after a good pressure washin.

Congrats!  I bet it will look great once you rinse the dust off.  I see it has CO plates - where was this beauty hiding?

thanks guys i actually got her from a customer at work who also has a kammback which he wouldn't sell me and it wasn't a barn it was a garage. she does have some body rust on the drivers front door and the rear hatch just above the fill cap. she needs a door handle and a drivers side taillight thankfully there's a good supply here in pueblo. unfortunately i don't have the keys for her as of yet as he accidentally grabbed the wrong ones. i'll see about some interior pics once i get her cleand out.

There is something so simply delightful about finding something thats been sitting in the dark, forgotton for so long, and pulling it out once again into the light to once again serve its purpose.

I bet that car will be quite happy to be on the road again, some day soon  :)

Take before and after pictures in general - there may be an EOM theme about that some day.

i actually planned on filming eagle eyes pulling survivor out of her hiddy hole but by the time we got to the momentous occasion it was to dark for for my camera pick up anything. and don't worry i'll take some more before pics once i get the keys for her, thankfully the doors are unlocked.
