Donated '61 coupe

Unread post by Scott Howey » Sat Sep 09, 2017 9:34 pm

Last week we picked up a really sweet '61 coupe that was donated to our club. I'm being the caretaker of it for now but I think I may buy it from our club. It's a great car. Absolutely rust free. Couple small dents here and there and an old rear end collision that was fixed. The paint isn't great but it's probably the best one I have seen it that's "been sitting 40 years"

When we got it home we put a battery in it and poured gas down the carbs and it fired right up.
