is it worth it??????
#1
I have the chance to buy a 62 Ford Fairlane that has the original 260 V8 and three speed manual transmission. It is all there except the front bumper and horn blow on the steering wheel. The guy wants $500 for it and it has a clear title. The title was not notorized so it cannot be transferred until the original owner re signs it and has it notorized. Is it worth $500??????

I guess that would depend on the shape of the body, how's the rust? Have you looked under the carpets and all that? You could probably part it out and easily get your money back on it, though.

I have not looked at it yet, I am suppose to do it tomorrow. From the picture the guy put on Craigslist it doesn't look too bad, bodywise, I guess i will find out tommorrow.

I tend to agree... $500 is practically nothing in today's world, especially for a running car with most pieces there.

If it is something you have been looking for or are otherwise interested in, it would appear to be a pretty good deal to me.

Of course, in a case like this condition should be a BIG concern!

Well I didn't buy this car last fall, I forgot about it and figured it sold. Well just a few days ago I saw this car on craigslist for sale and they wanted $350 for it, so I bought it today. It has a clear title and is in better shape than the pictures shown it to be. I have not picked it up yet, will get it next weekend. It is not a 260 car, it has a 221 engine and is pretty much all original, it even has the original radio. Big Grin

I don't think anyone can argue that the asking price is to much, but you're the only one that can answer if it's worth it to you.

Sounds like a great price, even better if it can be driven! Post up some pics when you get it home!
