    Found a 25 in a local junk yard today

    It looked pretty much unmolested. The only parts that I could find that were missing were the carb and rear tailgate. Not too rusty except the top. I really like the way the back door folds up on the track. If anyone is interested give me a shout and I will let you know where it is.
