THat would be the last resort. I hate to tear into perfect body panels that old
So far the only major damage is on 3 fenders ( easily accessed )and the floorboard near teh drivers side where someone thought it would be a great place to store salt licks at one time
The rest is in shockingly good shape, wheels all turn, suspension bushings all still pliable, driveshaft turns with no binding. interior is a goner ( the field mice had it good ), but dash is in restorable shape.
I probably would have left the thing down there, but my son fell in love with it, Soo.
