Thanks for the response Cargirl!

This one has been listed off and on for a few years now, so I think many of us here are aware of the car. I've heard feedback from several people who have found the seller to be... difficult to work with. There have also been some concerns over the price of the car vs the actual condition. Unfortunately, I think these things are contributing to keeping this car from finding a new home :-(

Well you hit the nail on the head. I was asked to represent the seller as a favor to one of my collectors. And I am happy to report that we are actually getting along very well after a somewhat rocky start. I have been able to have him listen to reason on many of the prices so far. The information I have included in the post is from an appraisal that was done recently. We are certainly open to offers but the offer really should be based on a personal inspection. It's cold as hell up there now but the car may be viewed at any time. Almost all of the cars in the collection are low mileage and all have been well maintained and stored.

I don't want to hijack the classifieds here so if you want to send me a private message I will send you the list. But a lot of American metal from the 50's 60's and 70's.
I have attached a few pictures.

Rev limiter and heater core answer

#10

Post by Cargirl » 27 Dec 2016, 14:34

Owner says rev limiter is missing and that the heater core is bypassed to prevent a leak in the interior of the car.
