It is sitting there.  I have done everything that is free and a few big ticket things.  My total spent on the Car this year is $8000.  That was for tools, materials, sandblaster rental, new door, and a few Ebay finds.
Next year I hope to get the Frame rebuilt.

This is what I am budgeting for.

Trans/rear end rebuild  $3000
Rear Bushings Ball joint $500
Crank shaft rebuild         $400
Front Steering                $600
Disc Brake conversion   $2000
Tires                               $1500

I wanted to do the engine rebuild but I don't think I will be able to swing in.

So 2017

Engine Rebuild  $4000
Body Mounts      $400
Carb Rebuild       $400
Water Pump        $400
Starter Rebuild    $300
Radiator              $300


Then wiring, Paint, Rubber, Interior, All new Chrome, Lobotomy because I am nuts its a 4 door. Then hopefully I can drive

If you like the car, who cares if it's a 4 door.  Last time I checked, you can't just go out to a dealer and buy a new one of these.  I've had the same things said to me about the 53.  Soldier on!

I have always liked the 4 door. And like the idea of a luxury version. It seems strange to me that the base model is often more desirable than the high end version in some classic car markets.

Often people say why do you care about the back seat. Your not going to be back there. Well you will if you do it right.

when you have your lobotomy, it makes it easier to get into the back seat, it just  eliminates  the chance of crushed nuts!

Clew as to these 4 doors. Its not in autodom the preferred design. I think the question is, what do you see yourself in. I love the big flw for lots of reasons. I have a conv but truthfully, its a pain in the ass. Around here, its like roasting in an oven. Id hop in my flw with the air blowin cold and forgetaboutit. Plus, i think i see myself in it so it becomes my preferred car, but thats me. Most would choose the other.
