I picked up my 1st 55 sunday. It had been sitting for 10 -12 years. The front floorboards are gone but that can be fixxed. Got the 69 smurf on white home put on a water pump, starter, and alternator, cleand the carb, put in a battery and it started right up. Then I cleaned the fuse contacts put in new fuses and every thing works. Wipers, lights, blinkers and rear window. I just new to get a few bulbs. 2 new tires and a tag. I got the sheet meta lto fix the floor boardss today. and bucket seats to replace the rotten seats in it now. I'll be postin a few parts needed in the next couple days if any bodys got a 69 to part out. I'll be getting the 71 in a few days and its got lots of parts i mite get rid of. so look for that in the neat week or so.

Welcome! Ain't it great to buy a rig and do a few routine maintenance things and have it start right up? I am just down the road if you ever need a hand.

Looks like pig fever has come to Razorbackland. I know of at least five locally in R-ville. Best of luck with the revival of yours. Where'd it sit for so long? ty
