If it's been straightened, and the owner did say he'd got a young family if I remember right, I suspect it's sat in a garage covered in kids toys and gardening stuff waiting for the right time to come back. My dad's Frogeye has been in that state since 1989. It's being moved over to our unit next week!
Just a couple of pics for now, have started rubbing it down ready for paint (will bear metal it before paint but not until the body shop are ready for it) I have bumper and grill ect to go straight on when painted, new radiator and fan are all fitted and running well. Has got a bit of overspray on the bonnet from using it as a work bench and primer on the bare bits from rubbing down.
