Take a look at this. A stock 1950 Shoebox Ford found in a garage recently where it has been since 1968!

That car looks good, but I noticed that rust right behind the front/ rear wheel...and the bottom of the rockers look like moisture might have rotted the bottom (?) I can't tell from that distance though.. might be as solid as a rock.

wasn't like it is today. You could actually lean against it or sit on the fender/hood/trunk, etc., without puttin' a dent in it. And even if you managed to dent it anyway, you could usually bang it back out from the other side. Today, you'd put a hole in it if ya tried that. Anyway, I'm pretty sure you can still get parts for it. And I agree...restore it - don't "customize" it.

...then step up with the money and buy it, and do what you please with it.

That's the way America works (for a while yet, anyway). You buy it, you can do with it whatever you want.
