Holy slicks and sticks, what a hunk of junk. My gosh, living in Texas you can always find a car like ya want in Texas or a close state that is pretty much rust free...that car is not even a parts car. Sorry to the owner if he reads this, but that one should be left for dead. A 32 Ford is a much easier car to do and one in that kind of shape would become maybe yard art on a good day.
I must be really out of touch with current stang prices, this green 68 fastback is killing me:
I would bet given the location it is a rusty junker that IMHO is a 2-3 grand car tops. It looks like it would need everything top to bottom. I have family in Springfield, I should get one to look at it but they are not car people so it really would not be much help. Its not that they do not have nice cars in Ill., but if they have been on the road up 'dare most of their lives they are usally pretty far gone.
I keep looking for a 68 and I got a better deal on my 32 than any 68 I have looked at...and I think we all know which one many would pick...we aint talking Shelbys or anything, just run of the mill fastback 68's.
On the ones I have looked at I would want a color change, a freshend up or new mill, none of the ones I have looked at have been black on the inside and that would have to be changed, and most needed work on the suspension etc. By the time I did all that I would have way too much in the car and it would never bring what it is worth. Hell, I could never get my money out of my 32 when its done and its gonna be expensive, but I am not gonna pay a bunch for a car that needs everything to suit me, at least not on a 68.
Ah well, sorry to blabber on about nothing.
