It's just another Cub, nothing special about it with the bill of sale to anyone other than a family member who was real close to the people who bought it and if I had to guess they are the ones who sold it to you for $800.

:Dito: Agree 100%. It's been said that the only guy who makes any money on a restoration/rehabilitation project is the one who sells the parts.

A friend of mine restored an old Impala, he was over at the house with it one day and said "you know how you get $25,000 out of a car like that? Put $50,000 in it" <--truth!
