  • Coupe and Hardtop found

    A member from Little Rock is looking for a project so I took him to a place I had only driven by before. This is what we saw in the back yard.



    No one was home and this was as close as I dared get today. I'll bet the frame and other parts are in the garage at the back. My friend was very interested.[]

    Surprises are everywhere. All you have to so is look. Hope they are for sale and not a project waiting to happen somewhere in the 2030.

      I don't like stock '53 backup lights. On that '53, it looks like they used '56 lights, or something in a similar location.

        I had not even noticed the backup lights. The camera was on telephoto so I was not even as close as it looks. It really was hard not to go on over and take a closer look.

          Are those backup lights from a wagon?

              Joe remembered seeing these cars many years ago and we drove by the house last winter to confirm they were still there. They can be seen from the street if you know where to look, but not many people would notice. We missed seeing them the first time down the street and we were looking.
              Thanks for the heads up Gary. I had completely forgotten about that letter that was mentioned.
