Found this 1 mile from my house

No for sale sign or number, nobody answered the door, but it sure looks like it's by the road for sale! The body is solid, but looks like it was painted with white out and a thick brush. Interior is very nice. Is it a 61?

Right here in Winter Haven on an old farm road. It's sitting out by the road behind a fence like it's for sale. I'll snap some good pics later.

Just drove over again. Still no sign of life anywhere, the neighbors were out but knew nothing about the car or the people who own the property. It is amazingly solid, doors and hood close tight and smooth, the old sixer even looks to be well maintained. I left a note today, we'll see what happens.

That thing is cool. Looks like it has newer front tires judging by the blue coating on the whitewall. I like the 90's era mono-chromatic front bumper. You could drop that thing and toss some fancy rollers on it and be stylin'.

The drivers door arm-rest cover has some pretty bad-*** print. Like one of Grandma's Sunday dresses,....or the kitchen curtains or somethin'.

Good luck with it!! When I lived in Kissimmee I came across a few old B-Bodies in sweet shape. Almost bought a 62' Impala with the straight 6, it was blue with blue interior, some little ol' lady owned it. I came across a 67' Super Sport too, red with black interior. My father wouldn't let me get that one because the rear window was busted out and he thought it might be "gang" related lol. Let us know how it goes!!
