Its a potential Eleanor. That's why the extreme interest...its a Eleanor waiting to happen. Eleanors are worth a ton of money....and well deserved, as it is the car that saved our hobby. Eleanors rule, and always will.
Which of you brave souls could see themselves taking on this project.
I'm not talking technical ability, I'm talking whether you can really be stuffed doing it ..considering you can do 2 or 3 other "normal" garage finds in the same time.
I'd say either you're a naive and eager first timer or you've already got it sold for 50 gorilla's as an e-car.
I can see myself losing interest real quick as the light at the end of the tunnel is that far away you need a hubble telescope to try to find the motivation.
After all, this hobby is "FUN" right? YES? NO?
None of you guys have apparently seen what a Notheast rust bucket looks like. If it was from CT, the quarters would be rotted halfway up the wheel arch, the taillight panel would be swiss cheese and the frame rails would be poking up through the rotted out trunk floors...
That car is solid compared to what I have seen get restored. Heck, the quarters look pretty solid, the trunk floors look okay. It needs a cowl, floors and the dash fixed. That's not bad. I'm sure there's more, but considering what 67-8's are bringing, it's worth the trouble...
Hey, who has been taking pics of my car....oh, nevermind it's an "S" code!! Also, there is a lot more of it left than mine. I may be one of those first timer nieve (not sure of spelling) guys that will burn out before I get it done, but I am giving it a whirl.
