Re: "66 138

I guess you can ask whatever, but agree, the seller asking too much for what it is. From ad text: The car is in primer and was originally an Aztec Bronze color.

The body work has I believe been done and it needs to be painted and have the chrome put back on.

Please review the pictures, this is not a project and will not be sold as one.
So who knows what's hiding under the primer, and the car needs paint, interior,+++ but seller claims it to be not a project.

Re: "66 138

That car is a driveable project no matter what the seller claims. Denying it is like a government tiptoeing around and hesitating to use the "R" word. With better verbiage and a bunch of pictures of the body before the primer was laid down would go a long way towards instilling confidence in any potential buyer. As it is being presented it raises a few valid questions. Any buyer should bring one of those magnetic spot-rot gauges to verify what lies under the primer. It may be fine but never assume that.

Not a project, just repaint the car, add the headliner and door panels, and carpet, and hook up the heater (does the core leak?), add the inner fenders etc... You could complete it in an afternoon through the magic of time lapse photography or an episode of one of those TV shows that gets it done in a day or 2... Or if you are lucky enough to have a genie

Re: "66 138

What a stupid "not a project" statement. I'd stay away from that seller.
