A nice looking car!  I was going to comment on

how affordable the cars are from the 1970's,

but then I noticed his high price.  $12,500 for a

car with 108,000 miles is more expensive than

even a Lincoln would be.

 

Thank you for sharing it.  It should be available 

for a long time, and it will be interesting to see

whether the price is greatly lowered over time.

$4500, anyone?

This car car looks to have some of the quality that was entirely absent in my 1978 Mercury Zephyr way back when. (So that's where it went! )

 

I agree with John on the price, though.

Does the rear bumper appear to be misaligned

on the driver's side?  The picture above makes it

appear so;  the other pictures don't show it as

clearly but don't seem to reveal any misalignment.

 

What do others think?

It's a nice car but there are a lot more popular choices for $12,500. 

Price can be the only reason this car hasn't sold.

I agree. Even if it was a full load, 2 tone, skirts, alloy wheels, 460, mint condition they won't break the $10k barrier. That's in Canadian funds.
