Great car, by the way. My second favorite body style, and I love that patina. Keep the trunk!
I am sure it was... if you look at the table on top of the car in the picture, it was starting to push the car through the rotten floor. I had to break the table to get the car out.

The barn pancaked the year after I bought the car, and before I realized the visor was missing

I also was missing the hood shelves, and radiator apron. I have since found a set with a patina that matches the car I just have to install them. Still trying to find a visor though, even Berts didn't have one.

The trunk is staying, the only thing the car will get is mechanical restoration and an interior so that it is comfortable to drive.

I thought that at first too, Purdy. But on closer examination, I think it's a 29. Look at the steering wheel, the door molding near the cowl, and the glimpse of the pass. side firewall.
