According to the label, it does have some acid in it,  so it might
do something, you have to react with acid of some kind to dissolve
concrete. Masons used to clean up brickwork with muriatic acid, maybe
they still do... ultrasonics are interesting, but somehow I can see it
just disintegrating the whole thing even faster! Resin coating, as
someone mentioned, might be one solution... maybe encase the entire car
as it is in a clear block, like a bee in amber!!

You'd almost have to immerse that thing in a tank for months to loosen that cement up,

and the sad thing is it would have come right off, if they'd done it right away...

If you can get me a list of the chemical ingredients, I can tell you if they might be efficacious for the intended purpose.

AFAIK that stuff is just a detergent/surfactant... it'd be a waste of money, take a look at the chemicals in it. I used to teach Chemistry, take it from me - that ain't gonna work on solidified calcium compounds...

They were really stupid when they unearthed this car - they should have
done their homework BEFORE  bringing it out... Archeaologists,
when bringing  stuff up from the ocean - and the comparison to
Titanic is actually highly apt here - will immediately re-submerge such
items in

fresh water, and that is what should have been done - the whole car
should  have been placed in a water tank and flushed section by
section while in a continuous sprinkler bath.. the pageant idiots just
forged blindly ahead and the result is a car now almost impossible to
restore.



I think trying to take the concrete off will cause what's left to
completely disintegrate. If the attempt must be made, I'd advise
consulting expert Archeologists who do artifact restoration and
preservation first. Such people are found at many Universities and at
the Smithsonian, who has the best - they restore all the planes and
space vehicles for Air  & Space Museum in a huge hangar
facility in Virginia. This is a scientific problem to be solved, not by
trial and error.

No - that product is designed to take stains off concrete, without
damaging the  concrete, not actually remove concrete - you will
need to chemically react  to dissolve the concrete to remove it,
sodium bicarbonate/carbonic acid, which has relatively high pH ie: not
a strong acid - but I'm afraid the only way to get it off is to react
it with an acid of  some type, controlling and monitoring the
process very carefully, flushing with lots of water...
