Sounds like you'll need to see it first to know for sure. For some reason, ALL things like that sound good over the phone. It comes with the territory. Go look at it. Is it someone else's nightmare project? Will you be able to make the mods you want to it or is it in such a shape that a pro will need to step in. Is it REALLY what you want or is it something that is at the right price and you'll accept it. Take an objective person with you. They will see things that you won't and will be more critical about it. Make sure this person is someone who's opinion you value.

If you're like me, it's always so easy to convince yourself that a bad thing can be fixed or you see the finished project in your mind and not all the work involved. Take your time, don't rush and be as honest to yourself as you can.

Good luck. At least the price is right.

It couldn't possibly be worse than the one that we're building. Ours was an old 1933 Chevy 3 window coupe that was turned into an oval track stock car racer in the 50's or early 60's and after it was wrecked, it layed in the woods rotting for over thirty years.

We're redoing it on a 1953 Chevy frame, as a vintage racer/street legal "hot rod". Here's some pictures:

That's quite a project, but you've done a lot of great work. I'd really like to see it when it's done.
