    Always makes me wonder in these ads why “new motor has not been started since put in the car”.
    Looks like a decent deal depending on who rebuilt it and if there are receipts and a parts list etc.
    “I thought YOU put the cam bearings in it! Ahhh just sell it”:D

    Even if they did blow up the motor I'm thinking $7K is a steal for that car. Does appear it has some crunchy secrets under the vinyl top, but still. Should be a lot of interest in this one, "hurry , won't last long."

    They are out there, this one came from the factory with a 350, suncoupe roofs parts are hens teeth (I use to a lot but sold them) then someone qualified to recover it and address the rust we could see. Still would be a fun car done

    Not an expert on these, at all, but curious - other than the cloth/vinyl/herculite do you notice any pieces obviously missing or beyond fixing?

    Hard to tell in the picture. I messengered the guy since a friend ask me about one a ways back. Has rust in the pans (figured that as some leaked from factory) and the motor is one he pulled out of a 72 Electra that he didn’t rebuild but put a cam in and the other odds and ends. If the motor hold together one “might” be okay, that top won’t be cheap but appears from what I can see a lot is there. I had kept the outer shell from mine for a template but another guy snapped that up in a heart beat.
    Okay,nap time, diabetes is working me over good today
