I'd be ashamed to let this restoration leave my shop sitting this high. It's just wrong.

----Something so easily fixed. It just boggles the mind. Maybe the springs will get changed out before the auction?
----After looking at all the pics the car appears unfinished, Many things under the hood and wires hanging down from the somewhere underneath. Mediocre seat cover install and more....Bill S

That car looks horrible. No way would I own that mess. I'd much rather have one with a lot of patina.

It almost looks like the car was "back-halfed" and they welded it on tilted up about 5 degrees.

That thing is a disaster! And an embarrassment. Looks like it would flip over just looking at a corner. What a mess.

Well, it does appear to have a "arrest cable" hanging down from underneath the car in case you need to land it on a local aircraft carrier....safety first.
