Hate to say it as it's a kind of neat car but probably a $500-$1000 parts car at best, way too much rot to want to restore.

I agree, one of my first cars growing and I love the wrap around rear window, but way to much rust. The front, rear glass and several other parts would make this a great donor. Great style.

Why spend the money?  It’s not going to help sell it.

Thanks for posting this low priced old car. I have kind of a fantasy about cars like this: remove the engine and upholstery and put the entire vehicle in a big tank of Evaporust...then see how much of the car remains when you take it out in four months. Even as bad as that rear bumper is, I'd be more concerned about the rust I couldn't see.

Amazing what some guys will try in some of these ads isn't it...


Hey, I say let him drop a few hundred or 1k  into it, more power to him. Bet he won't do that again.
