So I've been the proud owner of this beast for all of three days. I'd love to spin you fellas a yarn about how my great grandfather had kept her (yes - her - this is a boat of a car) hermetically sealed in his barn for the last four decades, but I don't really know much about her. The odometer has 66,000+ on it and it has definitely been stored un-driven for some time. The guy I got it from owed me a decent amount of money, is about to go through a foreclosure, and I figured it was best to make a deal now. I don't know a ton about old cars, but she looks good. No rust or major dents, and the body panels appear to be straight and original. My tap test didn't turn up any bondo, and the paint seems to be consistent.
The interior looks nice. A little musty, but no rips or stains. She starts up, shifts smoothly, drives straight down the road, and stops as she should. No obvious electrical issues. All lights work, as does the radio. She drives like a big boat of a car, as I'm guessing she should.
So... I won't tell you what the guy owed me, but I would like to unload this thing in the next week if possible. From what I can tell, $8,000 should be on the low end of fair, but it's definitely OBO. I'm in extreme SW Michigan, near South Bend, IN. You pay for shipping, but I'll be as responsive and helpful as possible. Any interest? Oh - the photos aren't the best. If you would like to see more, or any areas in particular, let me know and I can get them.
