Going back in time to about 1981, a friend of mine had an identical 49 Plymouth business coupe, dark green, in the exact same (rough) condition as this one. His ran & drove OK and he overhauled the brakes so we could drive it around in a field. He had big plans for the car, like a total restoration but that's about all he ever did to it. After a couple of years he decided it would take too much time and cost far more to restore than it was worth at the time. He scrapped it and never looked back. So now here we are 40 years later, imagine what it would cost today to restore this Great Cool Classic Plymouth project. I would have to pass even if the price was $1000. I doubt anyone will ever buy this car and even try to completely restore it, street rod it, or in any way finish something like this all the way to completion.

Agreed. WAAAAAYYYY over priced

Also, it is not a Special Deluxe (even though the front fenders have the script on them - they are from a different car according to the seller). It is a Deluxe - you can tell by no stainless around the front windshield and no horn ring.
