Kind of an interesting looking car. Seems like he has most of the issues straightened out. Options like the multi-drive and the 430 will bring the value up for the right buyer IMO.

Ad doesn't say if it's a running driving car." Needs TLC"

If it drives , he needs to take it somewhere open for better photos.

Not a common model for sure.

My uncle had a 60 two door , bought new , didn't like it and sold it to my brother.

He didn't like it either and passed it on.

They found it to be to much of a " Land yacht"

Nice car, but this was the standard drive train on the Park Lane series. Nothing special in this area. 

 

The A/C is scarce. Looks like original gold paint on the valve covers, I would look for documentation on the valve job.

Cool looking and unusual car. Looks solid and I like the new paint. I couldn't say whether 20K is optimistic or not...I know more about the '61's which, despite being just about as rare, don't seem to command these higher prices. Agree about the photos, especially in this regard: If you have a big 4 dr hardtop, roll all the windows down for at least a few photos. It's an impressive effect.

If someone buys this car and wants factory literature, I have a bunch of it that I want out of my office shelves.  Sales to shop TSBs.  I won't hold you up.  

TSB?

My Dad bought one new. He loved how it was a much cleaner design than the 1959 Mercury, which looked like an Italian battleship. He liked the 430, too. The car did its best to destroy a locomotive a year after he got it.
