Interested in opinions
#1
Hello all

Interested in some feedback on this car. Its a Gold Glow (plus) but has a black interior (minus). I see a bunch of things missing under the hood including braces, washer tank and horns to name a few. What say you?

No mention of runs or drives although has possibilities.

I would never buy a car without first or second hand inspection!

Good Luck

Looks like a solid car to start with. I'd be interested to know if it has the original engine. it's definitely a Cleveland, but the valve covers are on the wrong sides. Looks like it has been painted at least once. Did it have any body damage or rust? Gold Glow and black interior is one of my favorites! If I were looking to restore another car, I'd be a player.

Yes, Cleveland with the VC's on backwards. That's unique.
I guess the blowby actuates the air cleaner flapper?
I like the coil primary wires grounded to the cleaner, too.

This is like a "Where's Waldo" or "Can You Find The ____" of auto parts game shows.

Potentially frightful purchase all around. Can't believe the bidding is where it is.

I love Gold Glow too, but I wish it had a ginger interior

If you are serious about buying this car, you should put some feelers out to see if one of our members that live in that area would check it out for you. From what I can see, the car doesn't seem to be hacked up. Just needs to be restored. If you have a solid base, half of your problems are solved. The rest is cosmetics. It's a Q code Mach 1 with the deluxe Mach 1 interior. Very desirable. I don't think this would be a good candidate for a "flipper", but I also don't think you'd be polishing a turd.

With a DSO 71 Los Angeles and original blue California plates tell me the car is worth a closer look.

If this conversation keeps up, I'm gonna go down and buy the damned thing! (just kidding, I wouldn't buy one out from under another member!)
