Sandblasted inside, outside, underneath. At first, was just going to patch it up a little and drive it. Then I decided to go the whole route. Didn't realize I will probably move the decimal point a couple of places from the original price. But, it's only money, right.
Picked this bird up for $300.00. The body wasn't in too bad of shape but had to discard the engine. Soaked it everything I could find for a month or so and couldn't budge the pistons. Found a 61 for $125.
