My freebie

When I brought this home my wife was speechless, it was sitting at the coast behind a bait shop. I was at the beach with the wife when I spotted it,as fate would have it I was back at the beach a week later fishing and worked a deal with the owner to swap for a old clackecraft drift boat I was given for free and had no use for.

After loading it and ready to pull out the gentlemans wife came running out to snap some pictures of the moment,the old couple was very emotionally attached to this old girl. I almost don't have the heart to tear it apart but the only good thing left is the drivetrain and that's even questionable,and of course it has a Corvette motor in it,so I was told.i did find a set of rockers for a 66 with oem stickers still on them in the back of the truck.

Feast your eyes people.

Re: My freebie

Get a different seat. That thing looks like something out of a creature feature.

Re: My freebie

What in the world would make the back of the seat like that??... from the pics it appears to look like mud and straw everywhere. Just for the running gear alone I'd take that freebie any day! Yard art

That's what street signs are for. LOL Just kidding. I wouldn't do a full restoration but maybe someone floor pans and patching here and there, call it good. Of course those are famous last words.

At least you will not ever worry about someone holding you up to steal your vehicle!
