Don: Here is photo of the 63 Chev you sold us. Was taken last week when we put drill on the truck. Drill was rebuilt by Buckeye Drill in Zanesville, OH to original specs. Thought you might like to see what we did with truck. It is certified with new tubeless tires and rims.
My husband is currently deployed in Afghanistan and I am living in Germany where we are stationed for three years. My husband Robert has been wanting a classic car forever now. Finally decided it was a good time to start looking for one, we never thought it would happen so soon with us being so far from the states. He came across Marshall Motors when he was searching online, and we started emailing. The owner emailed us a picture of the 65 Fairlane that he thought Robert would be interested in. Robert immediately had his eyes set on it. We were very nervous at first about purchasing a car from the states when we are both over seas. The owner was such a help and very patience during the process of purchasing the car because we are so far away. He was a great help and helped any way he could. Everything went smoothly and we were completely satisfied with his service. Our car is being delivered Monday to our home state South Carolina, and we cannot wait to get back home to see it in person for the very first time.
Thanks again, we really appreciate it!
The family owned a Desoto like this back in the day. We painted it to look like theirs did back then.
Our story: My great Aunt was quite a character and she traveled all 48 states in 1939 with the goal of having a job in every state and getting her 15 minutes of fame. She was a single lady of 46 years in age and absolutely fearless. Her ride was a 1939 putty colored DeSoto. BTW, she made 45 jobs and eventually Ripley's Believe it or Not, which was the equivalent of a viral video on Utube back in the day.
As a surprise to my 91 year old WWII veteran Dad, we arranged to get the car in time for a surprise unveiling at a Super Bowl Party. Don's crew got it re-painted and got it to us in time and it was an awesome and unexpected treat.
We love scooting around in the car. I drive it to work regularly, but not daily. She is no trailer queen and runs like a sewing machine. I am not a gearhead or collector but I really appreciate the previous owners who kept this beauty going for me to enjoy, and I never take credit for their effort.
Thank you for enabling a silly whimsical fantasy.

We got the papers, here's a picture of the kid...
He wanted to sleep in it....
Thanks for your help
I was looking for a car for my oldest son who has his temp permit and hoping to get his driver's license in May. He has shown an appreciation of classic cars since he was 3 or 4 and has helped work on my '58 Edsel and '40 Olds over the years. I started looking at vehicles in the '60's and '70's that would make a good starter car. I came across Marshall Motors website and saw that they had 3 or 4 cars that were in the condition and price range I had targeted. I called on them and spoke to Mr. Marshall. He was very knowledgeable and patient, answering all my questions. I decided a trip was in order and made the drive from Sheffield Lake, Ohio to Jackson, MI. What I found was a lot full of cars that were exactly as they had been described to me. The photos on the web were accurate to the condition I saw in person which was a pleasant surprise having been looking for awhile. I ended up driving home in a 1978 Oldsmobile Omega that was given to my son on Christmas day. I am hopeful that this will continue to nurture his interest in classic cars. Overall, my experience was very good. Thanks Marshall Motors.
We got the bus today. It looks great!
We are all looking forward to summer beach trips. It has already turned some heads.
