I have seen a whole lot worse restored, there are a lot of rare parts still with this car so at least the new owner isn't starting over in finding $$$$ parts. 

This car if for the person that can do and enjoys doing the metal work themselves and is proficient in doing it correctly.

Agree completely. Donít forget the Hertz pulled out of the dirt in the last year or so that was so bad it almost broke in half... ďpraise the lord letís save that FordĒ

Ironically, the number for that car was 1431.

The one pulled out of the dirt in Ohio was not 1431 itís 1582, the pictures of the restored car shown at the end of the YouTube video were 1431 (my car).  I collected sheet metal and other OEM and NOS parts for 30 years before starting to restore, car had lots of rust from being a daily driver for years.
The car on BaT is bad, but Iíve seen worse but it will take a lot of time to get it done right
There are a lot of original parts on the car on BaT

If you have contacted me I have tried to reply to all.
The 2021 MCACN Hertz Collection Invitational is a go, but I need you to sign up at the MCACN web site ASAP, they are over 400 car already registered and the cut out is about 550
If we donít get enough Hertz car signed up we lose the spot, Iíve had interest from a lot of people but if you have legit verified Hertz car this is the show to have it at. We have space for about 10-12 cars so sign up today at the MCACN site
It should be awesome. I have started collecting Hertz Memorabilia for the display case and it should have some really unique items but could always use more so if you have something youíd like displayed let me know
Be a part of history at the MCACN 2021 Show

Well done, but truth is we really don't have to worry about our kids stealing our classics and going for a joy ride, none of them can drive manual transmissions, and most don't have licenses anyway!
Every car i ever had from when I got my drivers license in 1966 except the 66 GT350H was a stick until 2005, this includes a manual transmission in a 1993 VW Eurovan . When wife drove the 2005 car she almost killed herself by pushing on the brake pedal instead of the non existent clutch pedal she never drove an automatic since when she got her license in 1968. All the kids can drive a stick, but not that great, they donít really like cars 😞😞

My kids and a niece call mine the ďRustangĒ
Must have been the winter driving and two trips to the Bonneville Salt Flat that caused that name
