cw coach has a web site with there phone number on it. looks good not a bad body. the bad place on them is were the top and the quarters meet they has a natural water trap there that would give you rust issues. then they nailed the top one front and rear. so one more place for the rust to start. how is the interior?

interior is really nice with a few extra seats in the back and a custom bench that folds into a bed. I've checked with cw coach he said he doesn't have any thing for it. The main thing now is finding a windshield cause its cracked and the roof is rotted out right above it.

New windshields are available from any LOF dealer, or directly from Pilkington Glass. You need to find a competent body shop that can restore the glass opening and the roof rot before you do anything else. Make sure that they carefully cut out the original glass, so they can use it to check the repair for clearance / tolerances before the new glass is attempted. Also, purchase all new windshield molding clips, and have any damage to the stainless steel moldings repaired prior to the install. You are probably looking at at least $1000 in body work repair, unless it is only a small area that needs repairing. Most shops charge a lot to do restoration work on older cars, because of the complexities of the job.

Is your intention to restore the interior (front and rear) to its original configuration?

I'm not sure what i want to do with the interior. But for now my main concern is redoing the exterior so i can keep the water out. The main thing I'm worried about is the windshield it seems to be a mystery of what it is.

What is the mystery with the windshield???

Peter Grave 04-03-2020 09:58 AM

From your pictures it appears to be a standard commercial car windshield. Glued is as they all were in that era

not sure what the mystery is with the windshield but all five that I've received have been small. I'm waiting on another one the part number is DW678 not sure if it will fit but the measurements seem to be correct.
