Description for Ford Fairlane 1959

1959 Ford Fairlane 500 Galaxie sedan. 292 V8, 2-Speed Automatic. Under 36k original miles. Car was sitting for about 25 years in a garage.
The Good:Rebuilt thecarburetor and got it running and driving summer of 2018. Car now starts, runs, idles, drives, stops.Just had the brakes adjusted andpassed New York State vehicle inspection. Good glass, lenses, and trim. Fan works, wipers work, lights work, power front bench seat works. Floors are solid, trunk lid and pan are solid, rockers are fairly decent, frame has rust scale but no rot or failures. Interior is complete and fully functional.
The things that need attention:There is evidence of some very old body work done on the lower front fenders (see pics). There are a few dent and dings from its 60 year life (front bumper pic). The steering parts or box seem a bit loose and need some attention, but drives down the road as is. Slight leak in the windshield seal. This has caused the front carpet to start to deteriorate.Front seat has tear at a seam. The clip that hold the front windshield visors is broken. The passenger front door latch is temperamental. The coolant line to the heater core is turned off, not sure of heater status (fan motor does work). The speedometer comes in and out while driving, but the odometer is still fully functional.
There are no aftermarket modifications or alterations. This vehicle is in complete, original condition. I would rate the car overall, interior and exterior, a 6.5 out of 10. It just needs some love to make this Fairlane great again. I am the third owner that bought it from the original family. Clean paperwork and title.
