It's going to need a lot of work, but it's exactly what I was looking for. I know there are a lot of all black shorties out there (online), but that's what I wanted. Out on the street I suspect I'll never run across another one.

This is what is bothering me right now:

Below where the battery tray should be, the top of the frame has rusted away. It looks to me like the design of the frame is a C channel that is open at the top. Then there was a flat plate attached to cover the open top of the frame. I think battery acid ate away the plate across the top. Has anyone seen this before? Is this anything to worry about? How is it fixed?

Thanks!
I'll need to find some chrome headlight bezels, a door extender and a lot of other things. If anyone is parting an early Chevy, feel free to contact me.

I live in Palm Coast. I'm not far from Orange City or Deland. But I'm not into camping.
