    I like the tail wing in the second picture. Musta been an R2.

          Unfortunately the upholstry has been nibbled on by rats and is a little frayed as seen in the pictures.
          Also left rear wheel and tire does not go with the car...it is there for moving purposes only.

                Brian, is that a '51? I could use the rear fenders if it is. And tail light lenses.

                      Hi Gord
                      Yes it is a 51! And yes I had planned to sell the whole tail for a Car-B-Q. But the wife said don't waste the time! save the trunk lid and dispose of the rest.
                      The rear section is very sound. great trunk floor and spare tire well. And the rear sheet metal is not so bad at all. The rear fenders are rusted out at the front side as per usual, but the are fairly solid for the most part. A friend wants me to plasma the off so he can use the curves for metal art ( he makes grape leaves) Guess it is all about the time?????? I have to think about everything in time when I am paying someone to do the work! No time to do everything around here myself!!!

                          I offer a bottle of scotch for the hero that restores this poor child.

                              Well, Brian, if you do decide to part it out, I'd be interested in the rear fenders, the trunk floor, and the rear valance panel, if present.

                              Rocker panels, too!

                              I am far from committing to do a restoration on this '51, but having extra parts on hand for it is always good.
