RE: 52 FleetLeader SURVIVOR


I hear you guys, and totally understand where you're coming from. Right now I have some toyo 800 ultra touring thin white line that I could put on it for the rest of the year to drive around and might love them on the car who knows!

Update!

I went to pick the car up last saturday, everything went well...even if the brake were ceased! Good thing I brought a winch to get her on the trailer... First thing I did on the car was to take wheels, drums, brake cylinder shoes, gas tank, gas pump....Just like Al said, gas tank had pinholes at several locations....drums were in a perfect shape, brake cylinder and shoes have to be replaced, gas pump is GTG as well, needed a quick clean up and that is it....I spent 3-4 hours under the car with some scotch brite to scrub grease and dirt off........THIS CAR IS LIKE NEW!!! I will post pics shortly. I also took the seat cover off of it interior is in and incredible shape, despite the fact that it hasnt been clean in 65 years. I took some Simoniz carpet and fabric cleaner and after 4-5 hours of scrubbing, carpets and seats are just like new, I can't believe it... I will keep you posted
