This was my exact thought honestly. The rust isn't much worse than what most of us have dealt with and honestly the floors are better than my last one. I don't know, but I don't think $18k is bad at all. Would really love to see the door tag on this one. See how it breaks down a bit. If I was in any position with time or space in my life I would be on my way with a trailer. Would be fun to have my modified driver and a totally NOS build as well.OK, so 18k is high, but,...from the photos it looks worse than it is. The rust is there in the usual spots, sand blast the car, replace the cowl and rght frt apron, section in the frt floor panels...maybe just lower 1/4 patches and wheelhouse repair? Whats that completely rebuildable k code body with the 9 inch rear in it and clear title worth...5 6 7 k? add a complete hipo and trans 6 7 8 k? It didn't say 18k firm. If I wanted another full-tilt project that I would be doing as much of my own work as possible I would go look at it..I'm doing the exact same rebuild to my wife's 65 ht c code, just that the purchase price was back in 1990 so its a moot point other than the 25 k I will have spent to restore a 20 k coupe .
