1940 Coupe project

General Information

This car was passed down from my Dad. It was his first car. Cool story, he drove it up until One day, he was working in a building that an Airplane crashed into McDonald Douglas in St. Louis. He was injured but recovered. He received a decent settlement from the incident. Now, what does a 22year old Man do with a stack of cash In 1967?? He goes out and orders a 1967 RS/SS Camaro! So the old Buick got pushed into my grandparents basement garage, and stayed there from 1968 to 1998. Unfortunately after that house sold it went to a field, to bring it to its current condition. But! We’re going to bring it back to greatness!!

Super cool body style in those years. Are you going to keep it stock ? or rod it. The body looks super sound.

It’s 100% going to depend if I can get the straight 8 running. If its not locked up. starts, it’s going to get partial frame off, cleaned up, paint, And make it a driver!!! If the motor is locked up, it might get a little more entailed, resto-mod.. the motor has been soaking in marvel mystery oils for weeks! Gonna give it a another week or so and try to spin that crank!!!
 
How did it wind up in a field after being kept indoors all those years? It's too bad that happened. Looks like a great project though and it's really special to have your dad's old car. I can't wait to see more!
