I just fastened a modified series roof to the truck. I am sealing the front now, and it is done. I need to get all the parts dug out, and repacked for the trip. Lastly, I need to make a cover for the rear, to cover all the parts. We are good to go tomorrow afternoon I feel.

No Bill, nothing like that. Both ends are flat to fit the lifting roof base. The base contours the windscreen on the bottom, then series roof seals from the top.

Great work, Greg! You're the man.

Now lets get this thing eastbound! I am stoked to the point where I feel no shame using the term "stoked".

Does the truck have a destination on this side of the country?

Yes it's coming to Northern Virginia. Specifically, my garage unless someone else wants to house it until it runs. LOL

Almost there!

Dave asked me to post these pictures. It looks like they installed a series roof successfully! Not shown is a rear overhang but that should be ok but Greg is going to try fill it if he has time.

That look should fit well in the 'hood. Bill can rest easy as there doesn't appear to be any harm to the roof

I have accepted the higher of the 3 ship bids of $1350 for the shipping via Montway Auto Transport (2 other bids I got outside of ship were higher though). They responded to questions and take payment via ship which I feel more comfortable with. I'll let everyone know once they have a pickup date but need to patiently wait for them to call back because when I just called the guy (very politely) said the order had just came in 4 minutes ago and he needed a half hour before he could call me back. LOL

Charles,

I am glad this is picking up steam again. I have been silently following along but may have missed a few posts. Can we get an update on where we stand in terms of funds raised and funds needed? Is the shipping cost coming out of the donation to Kent or is it separate?

After paying for the truck and shipping out of donated funds we are at a grand total of $152 remaining I believe, assuming the shipper doesn't spring any additional charges on us.

We need to assess our needs when the truck arrives and we will put out a call for parts donations, but we already know we will need bulkhead repair parts like footwells and at least one door pillar, and a tailgate, but there will be plenty more I am sure. We'd like to take you up on your offer for the console BTW.

As far as more funds needed, the answer is a resounding yes. Besides the fact Craig has shelled out way too much of his own money, we will likely need to buy hardware, fluids, consumables etc. at a minimum which will add up.

The current plan is to do an assessment, prioritize, get her running and out of my garage before my wife gets too annoyed :D

Actually I just added an expense tab to the spreadsheet and setup the formula for the balance. We have $194.01 remaining. Playing phone tag with Montway.

You are too kind Bill. It would be great to get some fresh blood into the mix too. I know there are a ton of guys out there that could spare a $100 to help us out and not hurt their day. Come on fellas!

Anyone have any suggestions for an insurance plan to cover the truck during transport? Both my insurance companies (USAA- traditional insurance, American Collectors- antique/collectors insurance) are being difficult or just flat out rejecting the idea of writing a policy to cover transport of a non-runner comprehensively on an agreed value policy.

Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

Kent

Does the shipper not have insurance?

Just wanted some additional coverage. Call me paranoid, but I'm a pretty big fan of covering my ass against loss these days....

Why are you telling them it's not running?

They didn't actually have any issue with it not running. It was the transport part that they objected to for some reason.

So what happens if AAA needs to flatbed any truck? Not insured?

But agreed, carrier will provide coverage regardless of insured or not. Of course, get it in writing in advance.

Kent, have the bill of sale executed in your name before the 110 gets loaded up on the car hauler. I cannot think of one reason why your insurance would not provide secondary and gap insurance (the car hauler's insurance being the primary) should there be an issue in transit. Cars get hauled all the time.

Not true unless you have stated value which you will not find going the budget route. Else you will be faced with so many loopholes and conditions it won't be worth it. Best to get the primary insurance started before shipping. They will be the ones dealing with the car haulers insurance and BS should there be an incident.
