Although she is all there--including many mice nests--she is a parts car.
Locked up 318.Canadian built car sporting the Fury I interior.
October 67 build with optional auto trans,3 speed wipers and a radio. 
Body is worse than it looks.No keys so I could not look in the trunk.
The minimum bid of 300 made me sick more than the smell of rodent pee.I was hoping to walk out with it for a hundred bux.
(Y'all know what happened the last timne I bought a $100.00 C!!LOL!!)
That's at scrap pricing and the car is so isolated from town the wreckers will not drive out to pick it up.
Not worth the trouble,IMO.
Too bad,though. The armstrong box and column would be a nice score.Ditto for the wiper motor and 727 trans as a core.
The 50 Plymouth had no floors left and the 63 Bel Air needed major body work.
All were good parts cars.
But Ma bought up some really cool collectible dishes and trinkets .

Why? You say?
Well....
I can clamp it in my bench vise and polish all my stainless trim for the BoaB!!
Does a great job and is much cheaper than a professional buffer.
A great score for 15 bux!!

Cool deal on the buffer....but use jewler's rouge instead of Kiwi shoe polish! 

Is the manual steering box for a C body the same as an A or B? I have one of each if you need one. I know the columns are different length, so the box alone isn't as good as a parts car to grab everything from...

I don't need one,Bob.But thanks.
I was looking at the car as a business venture.
Take it home,part it out,sell off the good stuff and send it of to China,collect 200 after passing "go".

You know...My first thought on the Dremel shoe polisher...COOL...like in a nostalgic way...I didn't even know Dremel made those...I'm taking for granted it's the same company as the the beloved cutoff tool. I love using my dremel tool to cut/grind little stuff.... but it didn't come to mind to polish moldings with it until I saw your photo. Very good idea Lea!!...I really like how you think. We need you at work.
