I have no connection to this car, but I like the way she looks and I hope she finds a good home:

16% buyers premium if paying with CC and internet "fee". live on line bidding only so you get to outbid the Coke machine in the corner.
Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways?

The photoshopped photo makes it look pretty good and its the only photo on their website. If you start looking at the photo pretty carefully, It appears pretty rusty and ratty. Notice the shredded tire, really rusty rims etc?

There is a nicer ‘26 pickup listed on these classifieds right now in CA for $3k and it hasn’t sold yet...

I think an inspection would be necessary, it might have a Kingston 5 ball! But, any shipping would add considerably to the price so it probably will go local. I figure if I can pick it up for 1K I can put 10-15 K in it and have an 8K car! And I can talk of how it was a barn find and a rescue , then I can tear up and talk about how I don't know if I rescued it... or it rescued me... sniffle...sniffle.


It is close by, I do plan to look at it.

This car has solid body panels, but there is nothing special there. It went for $4,700.
