is it safe to drive and have anymore life in it(you left out the only good selling points!) the question...anything that is reliable that old and size of a boat..could bring a grand...


I dont know im actually trying to buy it but i was thinking about asking you fellas first here is the good : new radiator, new master cylinder, new spark plugs and wires, rebuilt carb, body is solid.


I'd say $800-$1000 if it is inspected.

If it runs- 1200 isn't a lot of money for ANYTHING that runs- if you like it- no rust? why not?

If it's got the V8 400 or V8 403 grab it!! If it's got the V8 350 offer $800 and see if you can get it for $1000. If it's got the V8 301 I wouldn't pay more than $800 for it. Also, check the automatic transmission. If it still has a turbo- hydromatic 200 or turbo-hydromatic 250 in it think twice. They are too small for these cars and very prone to failure. Reverse is the first to go. You'll see THM200 or THM250 stamped somewhere on the transmission unit. Probably the pan. By now, though, these were all pretty much swapped out for the better turbo- hydramatic 350 (THM350) transmission. HTH. -Jim

Is it well optioned otherwise? These were very good cars, BTW, except for those under powered transmissions. HTH. -Jim


What really matters is what it is worth to you. If you love the car and want to spend the time, effort, and money fixing it up; then it is certainly worth the cost. Especially since you did not mention every old car lovers greatest enemy...rust. Good Luck with the "land yacht".
