Essentially, this car was left to sit in the woods for 72 years until one day; someone came along looking to give the old clunker a chance. Now, this car is facing a lengthy restoration from one man who truly believes in the potential of this truck.

Under the hood is a four-cylinder engine that has been completely backed up with dirt and grime. The Inside of the motor was so overtaken by dirt that the new owner has described it as having the "Pack Rat package." The absence of brakes shows that previous owners had slowed this car through the use of the gears, which has caused the gearbox to disintegrate essentially, and the body has all but fallen off of the frame.
