Rusty (or Lady Fortuna)'s official signage

Body rust could be Much worse, so we should not be dismayed..though we don't plan or intend on waxing or concours type restoration, but no rat rodding or non traditional effects..unless really too cool to not try...=]

Unlicensed since 1956, the Ford drove only 26 years on the roads. I drove her onto the trailer and off again once home. She is mechanically complete and original. The roof metal and wood, as well as lower body sills are badly rusted from 50+ years in foggy salty Fortuna, California (Maybe 82??) No interior survives, save a shredded panel or three . one intact window glass, all non-safety...We trailered her home with Millicent our kinetic all purpose bus and travelling All-purpose bivouac.

Future possible body solution/suggestions.. wood, bottle, weinermobile(?) will be welcomed!

Slow, driveable-restoration most likely...,
