Whale Tails Rule!!!


I'm immensely thankful that you have taken this terrorized orphan to heart, and are willing to assume the responsibility to restore some semblance of the dignity it deserves.


Commendation, standing ovation, support, and best wishes on your heroic journey.


P.S.
Did they have the foresight to use galvanized nails???

Oh. My. Goodness.

Hope you didn't pay much for this. I haven't placed a very high value on our unrestored '55 FC whale tail, but after seeing these photos, I am revising my mental estimate UP!

Best of luck in your restoration!

Vivian, would love to talk about your previous value estimate. I have to find a new project and really want to find a 13 panel 50's trailer.
