I'm wondering what happened. Was it ever finished?

I made the last post on this build thread that is under the topics shown at the top of the forum. Look at page 34 and 35.

Mmmaxwe has a career and other projects, so I understand but I too wish we could get an update. His Photobucket links don't work for me--I get "account restricted" and some advertising when I click them.

1953 210 Convertible, 261 with dual Carter YF 966S carbs, P.S., Remote Bendix P.B. Booster... shade-tree restoration about done.

Just a wild guess on my part, but since he hasn't been on the site since 10-20-17 12:44 AM, my guess is that he has either lost interest, or has put the project on the back burner until he has more time to work on it. Just swapping frames can be a daunting task on a rusty car. Possibly Paul has his telephone number, and can inquire as to the progress.

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

This post was made 10 1/2 years ago. We've had three different presidents since then, a recession and several natural disasters.

While it was an interesting thread, the car never materialized. I wonder if any work was ever done?

I know he rebuilt the original 409 motor, I saw pictures of it.
He was in Iowa in 2015 to get the frame.

From the pics on the thread, I'd vote that the car was beyond repair anyway.

Time sure does fly.

I can remember his first post like it was just a few months ago.

He bought another Okalhoma station wagon body that was mostly rustfree to redo the car.

Well then, my thoughts were spot on. That car was beyond help.

After switching the body and frame, I guess the only thing that is left original might be the wheels?

Still, at this point I doubt that we will ever see a finished product. Oh well.
