1964SS Very nice find! I just finished a 64 and had a lot of fun restoring it. I'm in Mesa as well. We put on a free car show from 3pm to 6pm or so on Friday nights at the Bashas on Signal Butte and Main. It's a great show with well over 100 cars and some NICE GTO's to check out.

Shake-N-Bake Nice car! Would love to see it in person (I live in Mesa as well...)
Do you plan on taking it out to any cruise ins on the weekends? I sometimes take a car or two out to the show on Hampton and Power (Saturday afternonons). Maybe I will see you there. Original laquer is workable so there may be some things you can do to help the paint.

13mpg Thanks for the positive replies and sorry for the delay in posting again. I have made a little progress on this new addition to my fleet. The prior family were...um...well...behemoths and the car sagged to the left and it still had GM spiral front shocks on it and the original springs! Put in all new stock coils and some upgraded shocks and too your advice and grabbed some old school cragars off Craigslist. Took out seats and made $2.37 back in small change, found a new flashlight and a nice pair of wire cutters and a cool small Leatherman tool! Trunk had some freckles of rust starting under the mat and I took care of that. Replaced a couple vacuum lines and she stands real proud now! Gonna have many questions and will post those appropriately.

X2, should be lots of fun to bring her back. And it's true, they're only original once.

Cafr119 Man, thatís freaking awesome !! As far as the paint, once you give it a good bath and get the years of storage dust off it , you might just be surprised, and a nice set of wheels on it. Nice find ?

tjs72goat If it's original paint, buff it and leave it. They're only original once!

13mpg Thanks for the response I think it's pretty awesome. Here are a couple more of it before it went to the storage unit. The color is pretty dull and paint thin to gone. I'm contemplating just buffing it and waxing it. Any thoughts pros or cons on keeping it as is?
