Why does it say "wagon" ?

It also lists the color as creme and says it has no engine. Typos?

Do you think the obvious errors have anything to do with the FACT that all of the Copart's are Crooks and Idiots? :mad:

They will "Clean your Wallet" by the time you are done with the Transaction Fees, Title Fees, Taxes, Membership Fees, Premiere Membership Fees, Environmental Damage Fees, etc.

This Commander HAS a V8 and the Dual Headlight Option and IS and was Laguna Blue Metallic.

The Mileage MAY be: 65,507, the first Digit is solid and circular at the bottom, like a 0, 3, 5, 6, or 8. Certainly NOT; 96,172

It's good to know that Coparts may not be totally honest. If anybody were to make a deal on the car, they could ask a lot more questions, to fend off the unexpected. It would be a cool project. I think that the pictures make it look worse than it is. It appears to be an auto trans. The current bid is $80.00, but if there are hidden fees, that could be a lot higher.

If it casts a shadow, its restore-able. LOL

Comes with extra parts. :) And I love the ventian/louver shade in the rear window. What happened to all those?

That is pretty funny. Other people will see a piece of junk, and I will think that I can save it. I never stop to think of all of the time, work , and parts it will need to revive it. I have a few that are barely casting a shadow now. LOL

Good strategy. When taking a car to the junkyard, first stuff it full of all the other junk you have laying around the shop or the yard just to get rid of it. I have done this.

Unless these parts shown inside the car are good ones for the car that could aid in the restoration, then I stand corrected.

MEMO to whoever the new owner may be.............I have a good hood for the car available in Phoenix, along with a bunch of other 64 parts it may need.

I am with ya! Always loved the look of the blinds/shades in cars.

I went to look at the car. It was only about 20 minutes away. The cowl, floor, and other parts are rusted through. This is very rough, but has lots of good parts. I'm bringing it home tomorrow!

Disc brake wheel? If the deck lid is in decent shape it is worth the price...

I've got a nice 64 trunk lid that I would sell cheap. But its here in Northern California. If anyone needs one, let me know.
I may even have a nice hood, but I will have to check on that.

Didn’t notice that. I’m picking it up tomorrow. Fenders, glass and deck lid are fine. Can’t wait to see what treasures (garbage) were left inside the car! The production order doesn’t show anything interesting.

I can see it know - a dozen unopened boxes with "paxton products" on the return address... good luck.

OK, I started the "journey" by reading the initial post and then going to the Copart link. When I saw the Martinez location I thought maybe ABKCO would be interested in this car. Then..., I get to post #12 and it was like a prophetic moment.

If it isn't too personal I'd be curious to know what you got it for and then (most interested to know) the Copart/government applied fees that had been eluded to in another post. I have considered other Copart cars in the past but have been hesitant being unsure of the 'final costs."

Not too personal at all. This is the process as I understand it: If you have a permit or know someone who can bid at salvage auctions you can save the bidder fee. That saved me between $200.00-250.00. Copart fee's added up to $208.00. I won the auction for $125.00. You can put it on your credit card for a small fee, I think 3% or get a wire transfer from a bank. My bank didn't charge me for that. Yes, there are fees that can add up, but once you have navigated it once, it becomes easier and cheaper. It is a hassle sometimes. In this case, the seller would not agree to the auction closing price and relisted it and again and again. For the listing price that he paid, (I think it is around $87.00) the seller can enroll the car in 4 auctions before having to pay the fee again. After the 4th auction, he saw that it would not get a higher price. So either he would have to pay to remove it from the yard, pay and relist it, or accept/renegotiate the closing price.

I found the hood and trunk for the 64. They are both in pretty nice shape. Check your PM.

So, you are saying that Copart does not own some or all of the Cars? they are just a greedy "Broker"!!! ? :ohmy:

When my wife and I donated a car to charity, it went to a Copart facility here in our community.

I found a bunch of new parts. Starter motors, generator parts, mufflers all in original boxes, 4 really nice champ rims. too much to say. I’ll start another thread, post pictures and see if there is any interest.
