56 Jungle Green
drug home a 56 jungle green oval yesterday.

I got an email from a friend that said he knows someone with an oval they are getting rid of. he told the owner that i would be a good person to own it.  The owner emailed me and we went throught the details and i told him i wanted it and would come get it from him Sundayay.   so after a long 500+ mile round trip it sits in my garage now.

as found.  been here for 4 years
























All tucked in the garage. 



All the bits that came with it



Good working 12v tranny. neew seals. new brakes. new tires,





OG 36hp motor. unknow conditions but spins freely





correct H replacement apron





there is a fair amount of rust in the heater channels.  both sides need to be replaced.  Rust on the bottom of each door and rust in both rear quarters in front of the tires.

Very nice.
You are definately the right person to own the car.
The worst performance mod is whatever you're limited to because you convinced yourself (or others) that anything bigger or faster was too extreme for a street car.

The left front tire looks a little low.  You are going to want to fill it up prior to driving it as it will cause uneven tire wear and steering issues.

That's the problem with looking at a car through oval window glasses.  :rotflmao:

Replace the re apron today.  I remove the apron and left the inner structure that the engine seal attached to.   the replacement one was not the best and i wanted to keep as much OG paint as i could.  took a Little long but am happy with the results

got the rear all complete.  fitted the rear fenders and installed the deck lid.  things line up pretty good.





started in the on the front apron.passengersanger side was hit lightly at some point in its life.  I removed the apron and innerwheele weel section.  welded a bracket on the front of the quarter section and pitled ip out the best i could.  didn't want to weld a right side clip on so i just pulled it out and hammer and dolly it.

thank you



while waiting on the front apron to show up i decided to cleanup the passenger side front quarter to see what the end result will look like.

removed some of the surface rust to get more green to show through.  then clear coated it to see how it will look. 


I LIKE IT A LOT!!

before the cleanup



after i removed the surface  rust.



clear coat results. this is what the car will look like when done.
