Hello everyone, I'm looking at a 54 Champion coupe project. I need to know what to look out for. Mainly rust.The hidden areas that could be a big problem.
Also, what is the story on the frames from these years. Are they weaker[?]

Get in touch with Michael Scarabino from the North Central Florida Chapter of the SDC (look in the roster listed here on the main page, or at: http://www.bulletnose.org/)
Michael lives in Orlando and will give you an honest appraisal.
(and he might feed you if you join his chapter[:p])

Sean, I have a 54 champion coupe that I have been changing the rusty fenders and fixing the area under the rear 1/4 windows behind the rear fenders, once they are back on then it is pretty rust free except the floors, I have replacement pans for this area, glass is good , doors good , good chrome, hood and trunk, engine turns over but have not tried to start yet, will need brake work, use able seats, good dash, will be a nice car before long, as it sits right now $3500.00 when more done the price will go up...Bob

Thanks for the response.
I'm not looking to buy a car. Somebody is looking to trade me.

Thanks, Sean
