This is a sickness with no know cure...

John is absolutely right. If you are in the hunt, have patience, and money available, you can eventually find what you are looking for. I bought my 50 3 window project for $700.

You might try searching out in the northwest US. I have seen old patina farm trucks sell for several times than what I am "used" to seeing them sell for....

Yes there are deals...it just takes patience and cash in hand...spend extra on South Western sheetmetal...mid west is not bad place either...and yes I agree that rig by 2 ton is a deal too...still not sure why someone hasn't snagged it...

Good luck and keep us posted as time goes along...

I was just browsing around tonight and read this thread for the first time. I guess I am lucky the op never returned to read the replies. I bought the "46 panel ready to restore" 2 weeks ago and got it home last weekend. Stored inside for 50 years, a true barn find type of deal. As said on this thread, an estate and they just wanted it gone. Deals are there, just be patient and when the right deal comes along you will know instantly. Know your budget and have your cash at hand.
