The engine and trans are gone but it was a 3 on the tree, the color is red on red.
It looks fairly complete but it needs a lot of help. I would consider it a major restoration.
If it were a lesser car I wouldn't even bother to post this. I know I'm going to get hammered for not having pictures but it caught me off guard. I caught the owner dragging it out of a building that they are going to demolish. It would make a sweet race car for someone. He even has a extra hood, fenders, and a deck lid off of a 62 Impala to go with it. I'm neck deep in a 55 rebuild so I can't take this on. I could buy and hold it for someone for a small fee. The guy wants $1,500. I'll try and get some pictures soon.

GREAT BUY! $1500 for a 62 bubble top in any condition is a steal! Last mega project bubble top I looked at was $8500!

Any chance there's a 1961 hiding out in the same building.....or somewhere on the property? :dunno

Seriously though.......my hats off to you Wally for posting this up and taking care of members here. Very cool of you.
Phil Reed you lucked out. Must be all that clean living and good karma coming back to ya. Aren't you going to be busy with the '63 and those retirement plans?

The '63 is ready to go. Phil needs something to keep his hands busy, you know idle hands are the "Devils Workshop"!!
