47 body issues

Posted by R Anderson On 2010/12/10 11:41:44
I've only ever owned 55/56s, but may be looking at a 21st Series 6 cyl car in the near future, a car that shows surface rust, appears mostly solid, but certainly a project car.

Anyone out there who knows well or has restored a 21st and can pinpoint specific body areas to inspect closely for issues? How vulnerable were the frames, is weakness there a problem or rare? I don't want to get into a frame-off restoration. My goal is a solid driver with some original patina. Other potential pitfalls to be aware of, other than those typical of any 60+ yr old car?
