I did not bother posting this one and throwing a bone at this seller. Sedalia is in Missouri. My mom and stepdad used to live there.  To put ELDORADO in the ad as a lure is shameful.

Just like Eliza Doolittle, "It was so deliciously dirty, so terribly messed up, that I couldn't resist putting it on for all of you to admire. (And give me grief.)

War story time. A friend had one of these in dark blue parked in his driveway years and years ago. I can't even remember why I went over to his home. I was sitting in it, playing "car driver" and on a whim, started trying all the keys on the ring in my pocket. About the second one I tried was to my wife's '49 sedanette. It worked! Didn't start as the car was inoperable, but the key sure turned.

This was back in the day when this new a car was simply junk when it was too far gone to repair. If we'd only known.
