Six hours of jacking, pulling thawing later the newest addition to my fleet is finally home. Now have to thaw it out to see what I’ve really got! 2327

Car is slowly thawing, even after 12 hours in the garage (45*), still a snow bank in the interior. Finally got the front hood open, my dreams of a complete tool kit and spare tire were in vain, just a mouse nest and a pool of rusty water. There was a jack at least. Some interesting documentation in the glove compartment, Alaska vehicle registration from 1976, Coast Guard certificate from 1983 (principle stare of use Alaska). Looks like the car has been in Alaska since at least 1976. Plus a 1981 tide book and a few misc parts ( see pictures). Found an ignition key too! Bonus! Interesting AM radio fitted. Lots of rust emerging from the snow.
