From one panel owner to another Welcome to the Stovebolt.
From the looks of your panel your way ahead of the game. It runs and you can drive it!!! Good luck with your project and don't be shy about asking questions in the forums here on the bolt. Best guys and gals anywhere.
Oh, someone must have took out your vent windows and installed one piece glass?? The 51"s had pull down handles and wing vents.
Thats no surprise 52 had a 50 door on it when I pulled it from down your way.... Orlando in 2005....and still working on it!!
Thanks for the pictures....and I like your shotgun rider.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
