We were talking about that all day at work, predicting what kind of shape it would be in.
I figured at the very least, that engine, even untouched by water, would never run, unless it was filled to the top with oil.
Every seal, gasket, and drop of RTV would be hardend and flaked away.
The Lifters would be compleatly dry. The cylinders with open intake valves would have a few things in them, I would think, After 50 years of not moving at all, she was a goner at best.
Gorgeous car though, Grand Fury/Belvedere are my most favorite Mopar cars of the the late 1950'* for sure, would Kill to own one.
I like how they played the 50'* music when they uncoverd the car in the auditorium, nice touch, almost sent chills up my spine to see it.

If You look closely, you can see the water lines on the cement from over the years, that tomb was probably very close to full a few times I'm sure.
Unfortunately for Tulsa, cement is still normally porus to some extent.

I say burry a mustang, and never dig it up again!

yeah that poor car probably sat under water most of its life. There was so much water in there when they opened it they had to pump it out first.
