Bought a 1959 Fairlane Galaxie 500

Click Here! Pics!

Well basically body is in WONDERFUL CONDITION, everything is ORIGINAL. I added a Sony CD player.

Body is great. Engine is completely opposite (but it runs! I took it out all day today!)

Planning on getting engine rebuilt.

Here are a few of the problems noticed so far:
Grinding noise coming from front end (VERY LOUD and noticeable), something to do with steering
Burning a LOT of oil
Radiator liquid leaking (got to find source)
Starts up fine!
CV joint leaking?



Basically gonna get the entire engine, tranny, and suspension rebuilt / replaced if needed. Anyone have any experience with this? Approx, how difficult is it finding parts and approx how much would you imagine I would spending after getting it all done?

Looks like a good car, those problems will be easily fixed.
Have fun with it, it's a nice cruiser.
