Scored some cool stuff yesterday and as usual to get It I had to take it all.  My favorite score were the 2 1966 convertible decklids but one is NOS but does have some dings from being moved around over the years exposed outside but still in great shape

Not that I doubt you Johnny but are these people living in this Century? Maybe they're Amish?
Have they never heard of the Internet and looking for a market value? (not that I want to jinx you)...

Hi Marc....i find a lot of good stuff here where I live.  Lots of people are born here never leave and eventually die here without setting foot outside the city limits  lotsa of people own cool cars they bought new locally From the 50ís & 60ís here and just enjoy them until they eventually buy something new  cause there kids tell them to stop driving that old junker and park it and never touch it again.  Thereís a 53 convertible beetle here Ive been trying to buy for the last 13 years Iíll get it one day and I donít expect to much for it because itís
Just an old car sitting on the side of the house there not waiting to see how much $ they can get for it itís more of a sentimental value and when itís time theylll let me know so PERSISTENCE and respect for other peoples property helps in getting these cars and parts but most of all .... Iím just a cool dude to know LOL

Everything is just bolted on.  The quarter panels bolt on between the actual quarter panels and fenders and the hood bolts onto the hinges very simple
