Great project car!
This item is being relisted because the original buyer never contacted me. Please only bid if you are able to show up in person within 10 days of close of auction to pay in full and pick up the vehicle. Please do not bid if you are out of the country.
Engine runs but needs a tune up. I drove it when I bought it and it has good power. Transmission will not shift into reverse. Front clip has been replaced by amateur. Has rust issues. Sits on a 1969 pan, so it's 12 volt. The front drivers side fender is damaged.
I bought it years ago with the intention to restore it. I never put it in my name, there are about $800.00 of fees accumulated with the DMV. I do have a signed pink slip from the previous owner.
I'm selling it as is. This car has a lot of problems. I'm doing my best to list every issue I know about. Please do not bid if you have any uncertainty. I do not want to end up with any negative feedback as I have a 100% positive feedback rating.

Feel free to ask any questions.

I have had questions about rust and the title.

I will take some pics of the rust areas and post them. The pan is the worst. However, I believe the previous owner did not prep the body for paint appropriately. I would sand blast the entire car if I was going to restore it.
My guess is that the fees are around $800.
It's titled as a 1969.
If it were my project, I would consider putting it on a less rusty pan. This would also be a way of avoiding the dmv fees.
