Look on Hemming's. Keep in mind that restoring a car is more a labor of love than an investment. I think you got a good deal. How is the rust?


It is virtually rust free- it must've been kept in a garage. I have decided to try and get the car running and drive it myself but the engine is seized up. Any advice on breaking the engine loose will be greatly appreciated!

Soak the cylinders with automatic transmission fluid for several days before trying to turn it over.
