72 project
Any thoughts?

LOL, he is no where near 85% done more like 30%. You need to see before pictures. Was cowl replaced? Does not look like it was taken all the way apart to do, suspension off etc. Would not be a show car unless you back up and do some over. Were quarters replaced, butt welds or lap welds? What was original engine 6, 302 351?
I bought a failed restore farther along than this with extra fenders, ram air and back to rolling chassis with all NOS Ford components. Q code vert with built engine and transmission and rear for $5,500. I am doing some of his panel repair over because of lap welds and taking back apart to do a better job. I have seen fully painted projects that failed or owner passed on for less. Yes the body work and paint is very expensive today, $50.00 an hour and up. You can put over $5,000 just in paint and body materials pretty quick also.
Heck I might die tonight and there will be 15 cars for sale next week happens everyday.
He cannot expect to get what he has in it back. The one I bought had $16,000 in receipts and was not 50% complete. They are a black hole for money for sure.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
No VIN, No Marti Rpt.....looks nice in the pics to its current stage and is described as "all there "- except no engine included (whatever it may have been).

I would be extremely wary of this one.
