Selling my '62 Chevy bubbletop that is in the final stages of a frame off restoration. All of the body parts were stripped down to the metal including the underside of the body. The underside of the body was HEAVILY covered in undercoating which preserved the pans and rockers. There was NO floor pan or rocker panel work needed. Only a small amount of rust needed repairing at the usual lower rear area of the fenders, as well as minor rust repair above and behind the wheel well openings. Body work has been finished, parts have been fitted/gapped along with initial blocking. Should only require a minimum amount of final prep work before paint. ( I don't have a lift so I'm unable to get good photos under the car).
