Have fun with it VL2. Just don’t give those characters that brought it down to you any beer or they will crash on your living room floor for days. Their reputation proceeds or follows them everywhere.

The text from the Ebay seller....

 

"Let me start by saying that I am not a car expert and know very little about these cars.  I obtained this car as part of a three way trade.  I was looking for a '57 T Bird but that never materialized as the fella did not have a T Bird instead he had this Skyliner to trade..  What I do know is that this car was sold new in Albuquerque and has spent its entire life in the dry climate of New Mexcio.  I had it shipped up to Oregon and is now just outside of Medford, Oregon and comes with a clear New Mexico title.  Please look at the pictures and ask any questions.  I will try to answer and can provide more pictures as well as videos of the top going down and coming back up if you send me your email.  This Skyliner looks to have been painted sometime in the last 5-10 years.  It is a nice paint job but not a show paint job.  There is no rust that I can find, no bubbles - very dry.  The engine was swapped to a Ford 390 big block sometime in the past.  Looks to be a professional job.  It has headers with new dual exhaust that sounds great and the carburator has been updated with electric choke.  Also has power disc brakes up front so that you can actually stop - I am told this is a HUGE improvement by members of the Skyliner Association.  Everything seems to work on the car except the radio and the clock.  It has a padded dash which I am told is rare.  I am also told that this is fairly rare color combination.  The car needs carpeting, sill plates installed; headliner replaced; and replacement of the driver window as it is cracked and a couple of small trim pieces including the front Fairlaine emblem.  I have all the parts including the carpet, headliner, all trim pieces, kick plate etc. These will all come with the car.  Also someone told me to point out that the "tub" is in the trunk.  All hubcaps are present and looks good, new tires ( 200 miles) all around. The engine is strong, drives out very nicely, stops on a dime, no shimmy, no strange noises, no drips from the engine.  Also I am told that at the time of the engine swap, the transmission was replaced and is a three speed automatic.  It is not a show car in my opinion but could be very easily.  I don't think you will find a dryer car anywhere.  Odometer shows 62,000 miles and the car is mileage exempt.  That is all I know and now you know.  This is a No Reserve Auction - final bid before auction closes buys the car.  Transportation is at buyer's expense.  Please note this car is now 61 years old and is sold as is where is.  I have described it to the best of my abilities.  Inspections welcome.  
Received a question about the sunvisors - hey are with the car, in the trunk with all the mounting hardware.
Please only bid if you have the funds, permission from the wife and are over 16 years old.  Bidder with ZERO feedback will need to contact me prior to bidding or bid will be removed.
I am sure there are a number of Skyliner experts out there...............always willing to learn from you.  As I said I was looking for a T Bird - for either '57 T Bird or '61-'63 T Bird Roadster in similar condition - if you have one, let's talk.
Will require $750 non-refundable deposit through PayPal and full payment within 7 days of close of auction.  I will help with pick up and transport and can store the car until pick up is finalized up to 4 weeks.  Car leaves my driveway when payment has cleared."

Good, Did it drive as well as it did last year?

All I did was on and off the trailer.

I am thinking that at 16 and change this is a pretty good deal. Even with the incorrect updates.

Oh, and it doesn't leak. Very uncommon for one of these.

Yes. Only stalled a couple times. ? There’s a clunking from the front driver’s side on slow sharp corners sometimes. Hoping the brakes are not falling off! ?

Vic' , have John recommend a shop to diagnose dnd fix that noise ASAP. Even if you were a good mechanic, you wouldn't have time at this point in your new job to fix it yourself. Unexplained noises from suspension/brakes cannot be fixed too soon.   -  Carl

Hi there you lucky Southern Oregonians! I'll tell you a funny Medford/Ashland shop incident. Way back in the old days before I-5 was built over the Siskyous, I got turned around Southbound before the steep grade after Ashland. Chains Required. So I went back and bought  a set of roller chains from Les for the Michelin X radials on my '65 Eldo drop top. Threw 'em in the trunk, started the engine, and the starter would not disengage. Right next door was Skinner Pontiac - Cadillac. While they replaced the ignition switch (had to pull the top off the dashboard), we enjoyed a delicious Chinese lunch at that now long gone joint about 50 yards South of Lester's and Skinner's handy locations. Cad now ready, I went in to bail it out. They informed me that they had cracked the windshield pulling the dash, and would replace it for free. Well, we were headed to 'Frisco for a  'Dead concert, and now being a bit behind schedule,  opted for repair on the return leg. (Made sure to coincide with lunchtime). By the time we got back to the grade, the Chains Required sign was off, and we blew over the pass PDQ. Never did use the chains. I figure that was the best ten bucks I ever wasted. And factoring in the time not needed to drive slowly, chain up and remove,  actually very little time was lost overall. Just think  : at the point the engine was started at the motel that morning, the next time I shut it down, it would have inconvenienced me at a huge expense and loss of time. It might have even happened as I was  enjoying the view at the cold summit while making "yellow snow" !!!!!!!  ?-----------?.    -  (Just another of them there  -  Cadillac Carl  tales)

 

P.S.  : I hope I get to visit y'az some time. I am sure you will know the best Chinese food around. I do try to eat at Chinese buffets while traveling. My diet must contain lots of vegetables. Never better than at those buffets, or elaborate salad bars. If I really need to have  more heart attacks, I hope they are many, and VERY infrequent.  ?   -  CC

Ahhhhhhhh, yeah.! That's it. They had among the very best San Francisco style Chinese -American Chop Suey  I have ever wrapped my lips around. Yet another one of Oregon 's delights. That style of Chop Suey I remember from maybe 65+ years ago is getting out of fashion these days. But Oregon has an admirable  track record of not wanting to mess up good things. Sandy was just hankering for exactly that treat yesterday. I think she was saying the tea leaves read a trip to Tai Tung in the International District is in order.   -  CC

I have ZERO mechanical skills! ? 

John, I need to get it looked at. What’s the name and number again? Can you PM me with it? 

 

I’m crazy busy. Work’s nuts AND I’m moving from the temporary apartment to the condo this week. And a golf tournament Friday. I don’t even think I will make the Medford Cruise Car show Saturday. ?
