    1946 roadmaster convertible - is it to far gone?

    I found a 1946 roadmaster but dont know what to do with it.
    I do not have the abilities or the cash to do it justice.
    If I part it out it will be gone forever but the windshield frame is trashed.
    And the rest of the car isn't much better than trashed.
    Chrome is still good. bumbpers and grill, hood is good. Top hardware is actually decent.

    Any suggestions?

    It is gone - not worth rebuilding. Remove the shiny stuff and sell it on eBay. That way it will benefit other Buick enthusiasts with projects in better condition.

    I would say the car is 1947. Steering wheel is 1946-47, but the grille is the 1947-48 type, and there was no Roadmaster script on the front fender in 1946.

    Thanks - I did get the shiny stuff off. It was in much better shape a couple years ago but the vandals got to it.
