Rebuilt 350. Front disc breaks upgrade. New wiring.
He says the interior needs to be redone. The only interior shot was the one I posted. Looks like original to me and not that bad. Probably needs a headliner.
Those are the stock Pontiac Sombreros on it.
I would just give it a stance adjustment. Maybe throw the set of spotlights I have tucked away on it and drive the wheels off it.
Then in the long term a complete paint job??
I could see it in legit candy apple red with a gold metallic roof.😎
Or. A non metallic cream colored roof with a candy root beer colored body . That might come close to matching that interior 😎😎
Going to be interesting to see how long it stay for sale.
A guy can dream.....
Torchie.

Spotted this gem on FB market place.
1928 Packard 526 sedan.
This was Packards response to slumping sales during the Depression.
6 Cylinder engine. Looks very complete. This would make a fine cruiser.
$3000

That is SWEET. Does anyone know if it would have wood body framing or steel?

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Im gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
