    in line for front door hinges, left and right. How is the condition? Whats on the odometer?

    would anybody by any chance know if the front wheel moldings happen to be the same as 73 Chevy Caprice?

    Was going to ask $750 for the complete motor an trans. Or $600 for motor only. Will be 100% complete with all brackets, pulleys, starter, alt, p/s pump, ac compressor, carb, air cleaner, manifolds, etc. Odometer shows 84,857 miles which believe to be original, but cannot verify that for sure. Motor runs good, carb could use freshened up, Had plenty of power that I was doing 1 wheel peels with the car outside my shop.
    I may be able to deliver it over when the Lincoln swapmeet rolls around.

    Which dash pieces? If it's the woodgrain another member has 1st shot at them.
    $35 for the radio and knobs. It turns on and works, but the knobs for the push buttons won't push in , and the station selector is stuck on FM and wont slide over to am. The selector/tuner for speakers works. The manual station selector moves, but the needle doesn't I can get a pic if your interested.

    Door hinges operate fine, doors don't sag. Car has 84K on the odometer.
    Wheel moldings are different. I do have a 73 caprice or impala (don't remember what model) 4dr out at my other place. I'll check condition of those sometime this next week.

    Finally remembered my picture trail username/password o I can post pics here now.
    Here is a pic of the radio:
    Face and needle are ice and bright, not faded. 1 of the knobs has a paint chip. I just sent Lou pics of the woodgrain and am waiting to hear if he's interested or not.

    Dan,
    Skirts are dent and rot free, a little surface rust on the back, but no flaky scale or rot. The releasing mechanisms work. The trim is straight, and has pits, it's daily driver quality, not high end show quality, they have some dirt on hem I didn't wash them before I took the pics, also some tire rubber on 1 from doing some burnouts.
