Got the Vert!
Well we are now the proud owners, my father and I, of a '64 500 XL convertible.
The barn find does leave something to be desired but we did get it for around $2100.00 and a 4 door parts car that is in way better shape for an extra $1000.00. The only piece I haven't been able to come up with an idea on how to repair or find a replacement is the inner pillar/windshield trim. Anybody have any ideas? The pieces on the car are nasty!
I will try to do a progress thread once we get rolling on it. First is going to be bodywork and paint. Planning on Rhino lining the entire frame and and underneath of car too. Should be fun...expensive, but fun.
