very happy to see another one saved from the typical fate
one thing I got to bring up though, hope its not the case, but probably 95% odds it will be: just to know up front what you might be getting into, take a hammer and whack the bottom of the frame, especially under the front doors, the front and rear torque boxes, and lower part of rear aches...
if you knock a few holes, all is not lost, but at least you will know early about the extent of work you might be looking at.
the problem with the frames on these cars was the 'drains' were tiny, and the holes in the sides/tops were big... splash/road grime built up inside the uncoated frames, and once they clogged up(often they were failing by 5 yrs of age) the moist dirt just sits there doing what steel loves...converting back to iron oxide. Ive never seen one that had sat for any length of time that wasnt ate thru from the inside-out, unless it was a desert car that basically lived in a area with such low humidity that even the inside of the frame would bake dry...90% of the country this wont be the case, and if in a area that ever exposed it to salt even once, odds are not good for it having survived intact... by the moss on the outside, and low to the ground look of sitting on low tires, honestly I'd be surprised if there isnt holes already in the front torque boxes/rails- they usually go there first.
sorry, not trying to knock anyones project, I REALLY love to see anything old resurrected, and bet with a little elbow grease that car will be at least looking pretty good in no time- just wanted to point out a common pitfall that too often comes as a shock, and can cause someone to give up... dont give up, just might be a little more work than anticipated, but entirely doable, either by sectioning or getting a desert frame... looking back, wish I woulda got the desert frame as it woulda saved a lot of time and only cost a little more- way less if figuring even minimum wage in for all the hours put into ours
a desert frame often needs just flipped over/beat on, rinsed, etched,coated inside(I'd definitely add some generous bottom holes for flushing) and it will outlast anything else on the road.
best thing about resurrecting one of these old cars is the sense of pride you feel when finally able to turn the key and head down the road...very few remain, fewer every year...seeing one with a second chance- especially coming OUT of a scrapyard- just makes my day
heres a link to lots of pictures of underside details, might show you some of the areas to watch for that were bad on our 65 4 door... ours was more than a little daunting at first, but once getting going, progressed pretty quick... it was my friend/neighbor's 'baby' and he had no idea how bad it actually was underneath, just 'had to do it' for him mostly, but the old gal has grown on me a lot, here its still on the road 13 yrs after we first took it in... https://www.flickr.com/photos/832321...57634932178345
