DD2 (I need a new name for her) arrived yesterday. Today I started her up (she runs very nicely) and ordered new glass for her. Now I am looking for door panels (any suggestions?).

I have a photo of her here.....

Looks pretty solid. Does the hideaway headlight mechanism work ? Any more photos ?

Congrats Jon! Neat car... can't wait to see her all fixed up. Does she have the Simplimatic tranny or the regular 3 speed? Glad to hear she runs good! Keep posting pictures!

Simplimatic tranny.

I don't have the hand lever for the headlights for this car. DD1 has the functioning lever, so we could copy that one, but I think we'll install an electric motor to open and close the headlight lids.

Another couple of photos below.....
