    Seen a 64 Daytona R2 Convertible in that condition a few years back at the May South Bend Meet *Ahem small reminder, 'scuse me something in my throat, lol*. About the only thing good on the car were the tags, title only car , and maybe some bits of trim. In this case, maybe the tags, that emblem, the rear leaf spring, bumper and probably the headlights and headlight buckets. The rest looks like it had an unfortunate run in with a very large salt block. Possibly the drivetrain, if it has one

    It does have correct hub caps, though.

    That would be hub CAP

    I'd have asked the truck driver if he wanted the bumper, unless the other side was tweaked...

    That said, that looks like about the most thoroughly worthless ex-Stude I've ever seen! Only other good part in that whole mess is the wheel - even the hubcap is dented! Not worth saving the brakes unless someone takes 'em off for you, 'cause it's a six. that's just impressive...

    Yeah, I noticed that. That's not a problem, though; I'm sure you've heard of Fix-A-Flat! It does have correct hub caps, though.

    Nice Lark Project, Excellent Chrome...

    Looks like a '59 VI. I'da bought it, but with two Stude drivable projects as it is, I'm a little strapped for cash right now. I'm sure it wouldn't need much-little bit of Bondo, a few calls to SASCO...and you're good to go! I'd change the color, though-never did care for a pink car-too "Mary Kaye Sales Rep"-but that's just me.
