1956 ragtop project

Post by Cambur on Wed Feb 04, 2009 12:54 am

Well, I Traded my 59 euro rag for a 56 rag, a lot more solid project than the 59, all of the rust is just surface rust, thought i'd throw up a few pics... the roof has been cut for a rag and a PO did a crappy job putting in the clip, they also cut the pillars for semis, but realized there was more to it than just cutting a square! Rolling Eyes

they installed the clip underneath the roof and screwed it in Shocked

this will be a slow project, but I will keep it updated as I progress
more pics...

I believe you picked the car up in NC. I just missed buying it in Conyers, GA. The guy from Carolina beat me to it. Good luck with it.
It really does look pretty solid. Keep everyone posted on your progress. Cool

actually i got it from white, GA, i think the guy from carolina sold it pretty quick cuz this guy has had it for a while,we had been toying with trading for a while, we both had a little extra time and decided why not? its been passed around for a while, everyone is scared of the roof i guess, but i plan on holding on to it.
