    This car belonged to a friend of mine. I knew about it the whole 30 years that he had it in storage. I wasn't quite sure what it was worth.

    My research showed that a clapped-out shell of a car with no engine was worth $5000 and a nice one was worth $30,000-40,000.

    This one was somewhere in the middle of those two boundaries, so I put a price of $20,000 and the second person that looked at it bought it. That probably means I could have gotten more for it, but everyone is happy. And I now have room in the garage for the new Touring. I hope it shows up soon.

    Oof, that poor piggy is going to get blasted to bits.

    I think I have someone coming to get it Sunday for $20,000.

    Engine runs strong. It has an aftermarket carb, intake, cam, headers and roller rocker arms.

    The engine is not much to look at. Kind of dirty. I hosed it off, but it didn’t help much.

    I'm genuinely shocked by how nice that thing cleaned up! Great work!

    How about some engine shots? Keep the updates coming!

    Does this mean it has to be a truck before people will guess a price?
    I mean, it kinda IS a truck...

    maybe this will help. I went with a Base 1969 Cramro Cabriolet V8 because thats all I can tell about the car...

    Smart move to turn down $13k, try for like $20-25k

    I stand by my assertion that it is a truck.
    It does drive like one.
