I may have missed something in these conversations, but this car looks way too complete to part out.

It is being parted out to restore a 1959 just like it with less rust and a more desirable year model (by some people) that was stripped of its parts many years ago. Think of it as an organ donor that died in a tragic accident... the organs go to someone else that is living and in need of them. This 1960 has died a tragic death by a combination of salt and water...

If it was the same car that served in Ohio, it sure had a fantastic prior life and looked outstanding at that time. Very cool color combo and lines.


Steve

Apparently it had lots of rot but some really great parts that were in need.

Another thing it would need is a LOT of TIME and mostly MONEY if it was to be restored. No one has that for this car.

Parts are a MUST to restore other cars and to keep the ones going we have on the road now !

If the car is the one pictured in Ohio as Attila has shown... it sure would have been an outstanding restoration !


In my opinion... parting out old cars is a MUST to keep our current cars rolling down the road in their original glory as we see at every PCS meet !!!

If you can't restore them afford-ably, part them out and put a smile on someones face ! People are always looking for parts !

Long live the pro-cars of the last 100 years !


Darren

Atti, what town in Iowa is it from? Just curious of any pro-car from my State.

but one has to have the space to put it, the time to strip it and the car that needs the parts. the apility to keep your fingers crossed hoping they still good on this one. me I don't have any of that. what I discovered when I did, was that I spent more time and money on the parts car then I did getting the one I wanted back to gather. all I ended up with was a yard full of junk and uncompleated projects, with lots of friends wanting me to give them something. now days all I have is a yard full of uncompleated projects and a few bucks to compleat them with. so all I can say is better you then me. been there done that, got the holes in my T shirt to prove it.

My 'fool' retort was pure sarcasm my friend, assuredly.

Although now I need 2 Advil and a deciphering key to decode your last chunk.

Side molding is half the width than normal (and peaked), I presume because of lower placement on body. Not the same as what you're looking for. I've got you covered though.
Attila,
Can you get a pattern off of the side door glass for me? Don't need the quarter glass. I know of a local gal that can do the etching for me. Also, let me know if you have anything left to sell.
Thanks!
Kurt

Change of plans. Sadly, due to an overseas death of an immediate family member, '59 ambulance owner wasn't able to follow through at this time so '60 is now on eBay. One shot for someone else before parting.

And no, I didn't write nor proofread item description.
