Jim,
You might want to take a look at your leaf springs before you run it up on a hoist. You might have some broken springs on the driver's side....... unless there is something REALLY heavy in that removal basket!

Congratulations on getting such a well preserved car. To add to what Kurt mentioned, that vintage of cars also have a problem with the upper control arm bushings wearing out. If you are going to have them replaced, have the lowers also replaced. You would be best off finding a shop that is used to working on vintage cars. The brakes will definitely need to be restored, with rebuilding all wheel cylinders and the master cylinder. If you have a garage, and a jack, you can do that yourself and save a lot of money. I would be happy to help you with coaching on how to tackle some of the basic jobs that it is going to take to getting this car back to running condition. A lot of it isn't that difficult, just time consuming.
If you have access to a pressure washer, that will be the best way to get all that Oklahoma red clay off without damaging the paint. This is what I am now using with my pressure washer.

Red clay = many vacuum filters or an oneida dust seperator if you aren't into building a Thein seperator for your dust.

Remember to have the vacuum in place and running before you flip on the defrosters.

Trust me!

Red clay=similar to what we called adobe mud in New Mexico. When I removed the front clip and rebuilt the front suspension of my '67 Pontiac twenty five years ago it was amazing how many clods of dried mud came loose once I fired up the impact gun.

+1 on the dust. I had a 67 Pontiac combo I bought from Skip Goulet in Texas. I scrubbed and vacuumed the interior until it was spotless. Drove it a few miles and had to vacuum it again. That went on for months. That fine talcum powder dust was in every nook and crannie.
