1949 Dodge Wayfarer

1949 Dodge Wayfarer roadster, (two door convertible). Runs pretty well, strong motor and trans, yard drives well with the emergency brake. No smoking, knocking or overheating. This is the last American made roadster produced (no roll up back windows). Stored since 1962, (see by the license plate) in a shed with a dirt floor. Surprisingly, the main portions of the floors and the frame are good, however, the real issues are the rotted out rocker panels and door sills which the car depends on for strength. The doors therefore do not close solidly. I have located a source for these parts at plymouthdoctor.com.The inner and outer rocker panels plus the door sills cost about $700. These are accurately made and of excellent quality. If you have ARC or MIG welding skills, this is a pretty straight forward fix. I have way too many projects so am offering this car at a bargain price. Once done, you'll have a high end classic worth serious money. All top bows are present and in good shape, however, the top itself is pretty well shot. I do not have a title for this car but do have two old Maine registrations dating back to 1960 and 1961. Many states will accept this in lieu of a title. Check your local laws to be sure.
