It is a Plymouth that I picked up Friday(Xmas eve) for $1500. It is complete from the door/window handles to the hubcaps, w/only a crack in the windshield, and a broken trunk hinge, that can be welded back together. It has been in storage since '85, and it was driven there. Fortunately it has been a CA vehicle its entire life, very little rust, nothing more than surface. at least so far. It even came with the original owners manual that looks like it was printed last week. I just have to finish up a few projects before I get started on it, hopefully sometime in February.

Thanks for the comments.

Wire wheels would look nice, but since it is original down to the hubcaps, I think it will have more value keeping it that way. There seems to be a growing market for unmodified cars, as well as those that haven't been touched. The current plan is to restore it to its original condition, not likely concourse level, just a drivable car. I am considering a 2-tone paint job, red body and black fenders/running boards/and possibly headlight buckets. This is what the candy red w/black looks like in the shade,

in the sun it looks incredible.

The front tires had rotted away while in storage, those were just to get it on the trailer.
