What does he mean by "aside from the mild tick that is common with the 351 Cleveland motors" used in the description?

I'd say not for a first time restorer!
He's basically saying it's got heaps of rust and dings, and the motor makes noises, but apart from that, it's a diamond!

I've never heard of the common tick related to the 351C engine other than the ones the might be crawling on it after it's been sitting outside for an extended period of time. Which may be true in this case.

I need a tetanus shot just viewing the ad. She needs a ton of work, so yes not for a novice restorer.

Hydraulic lifters can 'bleed down' and make a ticking sound upon initial start up. It is common in motors that sit for a long period. As the engine is restarted oil pressure allows upper cylinders to receive lubrication, the sound can go away or at least be less noticeable.

+1 the louder the exhaust, the quieter the lifters and rockers are.
Not a bad price for it as far as i'm concerned. You can buy them cheaper in this condition but they are getting harder to find...NOT. I would say it's a $800-1200 car

Even though the car needs some structural work/rust repair it does look fairly original. But it is overpriced for sure at $4,000.

It maybe a little high. It looks to be in better than average condition for a back east car.Cool
