Don - found a C-list car to rival your COTM winnner
#1
http://miami.craigslist.org/pbc/cto/4160683639.html

Photos show the rotted quarters and holes in the rocker and door - not to mention the very photogenically foreboding fender rust - but the owner also tells me that the floorpans are absolutely non-existent, and the 351 is seized solid.

Seller: "It does have a 4-speed toploader though...you know how rare that combo is."
In my dreams: "$1,500 is a bit steep for a junker 4-speed toploader and a pile of scrap iron, sir."

Meh - that's around what I paid for mine - pretty much same stuff (seized 351C, rust everywhere, etc.).

That car's totally restorable. Wink Big Grin

The wing must be on backwards, which is why there's no picture of it.

Parts car!

Auron and I went in together on a couple of parts cars: a '72 Mach 1 and a '73 Coupe. You cannot imagine how happy I was to discover that the '72 is not restorable (I don't feel bad about harvesting parts now). The '72 looks very similar to this one, but not as bad.
