“Betty OEW”
Owned by the second family since 1960. I'm owner #3. This vehicle is all original. Engine unmolested w/ all original wiring, lines and electrics. Although not running, engine turns. Have original top and side curtains but needs attention. Rodents have resided for many years. But still great candidate for restoration.
Purchased 8/17

Began disassembly. Rust in the usual areas: dog legs and some B pillar repair/replace needed. Complete interior replacement required. Black leather w/ white piping. Fenders, doors, dash, floor boards, bonnet, boot, bumpers removed and in good condition. All gauges are original and in very good condition. Will be sent to be cleaned, calibrated. Need new wiring due to mouse motel.
Working towards disassembly of frame from shell:
Removed radiator, fuel tank, wire harness, heater box, master cylinder etc. Need to disconnect the last of the metal lines and body bolts in preparation for final body separation.Then the real fun begins!
Body off frame now. Awaiting B pillar and sill repair/replace during year's end. Then some minor body work to smooth out things and get it blasted, primed and painted back to original color of OEW. Begin disassembling everything on frame to bare for minor attention before sending out to be power coated in early January.
