This 1951 Muntz Jet for sale on Hemmings.com definitely won’t make for an easy restoration – after all, there’s no manual for restoring a limited-production car like this that received an unorthodox engine transplant nearly 60 years ago – but at least the seller has already done much of the heavy lifting, from getting the car running to repairing the major rust. It also appears mostly there, which is always a plus for cars with zero aftermarket support. From the seller’s description:
In running condition, needs a complete restoration. Arizona title with “box A” 54,0000 actual miles. Purchased in 1957 in Phoenix at Sarwark’s Consolidated Auto Sales, which is still in business today. The car was owned by the same family since 1957, until purchased by the present owner four years ago. Previous owner installed a 57 Lincoln 368 C.I. engine in 1957 with the original G.M. Hydra Matic . The car is very complete, some of the original interior was saved to provide a pattern during restoration. Front bucket seats have been reupholstered. Due to being stored outside for several years, it required portions of the floor to be professionally replaced. The original gauges all work, none of the lights are in working condition.
