Nick has bin looking for a new project and thanks to RJ he has found one and its a full package :eek:
i dragged it to the shop Friday night and he has bin going ever since we soddered up some of the wiring harnesses that the rat chewed though put a battery in it and fired it up
it lives !!!! i guess from sitting something has gone bad it seams to have a blown head gasket but no water in the oil just exhaust coming out of the rad. and coolant out the exhaust pipes.(as far as i know it should be the other way)
but he wanted to do a complete Restoration so here it is :eek:
he started with removing the exhaust system then the fuel tank then the drive shaft transmission and engine
tomorrow the interior and the dash
he is on his way and happy (oh boy)
more to come as it comes:cool:

It's great to see that RJ's 90 Anniversary went to a good home. From what I can remember, the car was in pretty good shape.

Keep us posted on the progress.

Which pull-n-pay yard is that? Doesn't look like LKQ on Hwy 50..... maybe the one down by OIA?

I'm interested in the 2 white SC's
