1956 Cadillac: had been re-painted red with a white roof when I got it from my father.  Leaked everywhere and barely turned over after 30 years of storage.  See the whole story: http://mysite.verizon.net/vzerqgfe/id5.html

We left the frame and chassis together.  I lifted the rear end to install a new chassis connection that had rusted out but that was about it.  The frame was scraped and repainted but it was in really good condition.  Besides, no one had a lift big enough that could pull the body apart, or that I could afford.  These pics shows the trunk/rear lifted so they can install the new bar and weld it in to secure the rear of the chassis to the frame.
