I went by and stripped a few pieces out of her. I observed a few other things:

Bonnet and boot lids in good shape
Inner front wings are solid
Radiator frame and radiator in good shape ( I stripped mechanical bonnet release)
Intake still there and good shape
Running gear (engine, gear box, and diff.) still in car
Rear window glass
All chrome parts pitted, need replating (I stripped both chrome door spears)
Most door hardware frozen (handles & mechanics)


...no those are not semaphores, they're dummy plates.... Soooo disappointed.

Hi Mark,

I need the hockey sticks, i.e. the chrome strips over the guards and associated pieces.

How much?

Regards,


Tony

I know I saw a bumper in the car, couldn't say front or back. I took the dash switches, some minor parts, and my pay dirt was the turn indicator and horn stator assembly and tube.

Any thing chrome on the car needs replating... I got the door spears for my hockey sticks and will send to my brother to replate with nickel...

He and I did confirm its got matching numbers and all the drive gear is in the car. Body is really rough, but I've seen as bad here being fully restored.

Hi Mark,

I am interested in the hockey sticks, but would like them as they are, I will arrange repairs and plating.

Can I buy them as they come off the car please?

Tony,

It's not my car. I found the advertisement and went to look at it. I bought a few parts and told the guy I'd post his ad on the forums. You can contact him through the advert... I posted the link, here it is again.
