Not really, he was ready let it go and had no interest in investing time and money to get it back on the road. He never thought he would still have 52 years later, it just happened.

Default Misc.

Wheels, Tires (second set and have around 20K miles on them), the original wheels & caps (he painted the rim faces black at some point before the mags went on), the original inner air cleaner ring and T-3 sealed beams (looks like the driver's lower was replaced, no lines in the triangle).
