When I look at something like that I sometimes ask myself "what does this car even offer as value?".

I think a lot of people would replace emblems, maybe taillights, of course the sheet-metal stuff...the interior bits too.

So, is the only value here in the frame, dash & cluster and the glass? Maybe grill/headlights? That's not much.
I presume the bumpers need re-chromed.

I'm not in the 65/66 parts business like others, but I did start with a rust-bucket. I was fortunate (?) enough to only have to do several patches in the trunk and floorpans on mine. (aside from extensive bodywork needed)


To me, that car only seems like a $250-$500 car.
