Hey Jim, thanks for calling attention to that truck.:) I would love to tackle a project like that. However, if you will look at the front fender, that rust bubbling up all the way to the top of the cowl could signal some serious structural cancer. My experience has been that upon removal, the fenders with that much bubbling paint could be hiding a host of tinworm infestation even into the pillars, not to mention what may be lurking under the floor mat. That being said, if I could examine the truck in person, I would be tempted to risk some serious behind closed door flak from my lovely wife about priorities. (You know... stuff like the need for a new washer/dryer, carpet, painting, and other such trivia!):(

For the price I don't think a person could do wrong if they are looking for a T cab project. Complete and probably unmolested. I saw the rust issues. jimmijim

I looked at that too... Immediately went to Mapquest to check the distance from here (CeRap) to there- 524 miles[xx(] Little too much of a "side trip"... had it been maybe 300 miles I'd have hit the BIN;)

You have to consider the location; being from there it's probably really solid underneath! I'd take a chance on it, if it was closer. Good buy for somebody- what's the spare 289 alone worth?? I'd be surprised if it lasts the day!

I looked at the pictures and the price seems right IF the seller really knows what solid is. I would like lots more pictures and maybe a phone call to the owner before I would bid.

I cant find it. Has it been sold already?

60 Lark convertible
61 Champ
62 Daytona convertible
63 G.T. R-2,4 speed
63 Avanti (2)
66 Daytona Sport Sedan

Nevermind, I found it. Looks like a decent buy to me, especially with a spare engine that said to have run too.

This auction ia a perfect example of a seller who's too cheap to post adequate photographs. The one shot we get of the front and driver's side is so dark as to be almost useless same with the interior. Nothing of the rear, and the shell looks to be too large.[B)] I wouldn't give him over five or six hundred on a good day. I mean, yes it runs, but that's it's only virtue. It's made it through inspection, so it seems the brakes at least work. Add to that, it's had at least three farmyard paint jobs.[xx(] On the other hand, the truck could be a jewel! If it is, the seller isn't doing himself any favours by being cheap on the pictures![V]

Pity of the whole thing is that this is a '64. The year that the Champ (finally) got upgraded with decent brakes, among other things. I sure wish I lived closer.[B)]

I just put in a token bid which has already been outbid. I may crunch some numbers this afternoon and pop it, if I can figure out the transport. Anybody in OK with a trailer want a weekend in beautiful Southern Illinois? All expenses paid!

Oops. Thought I'd do one last bit of research before hitting the BIN. Searched for completed listings on Champs. Guess what was listed? While I was goofing around, someone nabbed it. Oh well.

OOPS! Sorry about that.I just hope its what he says it is but its the best truck I have found for the money. He says the floors etc.. are all solid and the only signifigant rust is shown in the one pic. Being a farm truck I am sure there are some bruises to massage out and lots of old paint to remove. I will know more this evening and expect to get it home soon. Steve

So...I take from the above that you did not do the deal with the '41 you were looking at a few days ago. :) I look forward to seeing your new truck!

Not yet, but I still have not lost interest in it. The owner has still not sent pics so I am guessing he changed his mind, I havent really pushed it. The truck will be my personal daily driver for the next few years. After that,who knows. The 41 was just trading toys. If we work something out I will play with it for 6 months or so then resale it or trade it for yet another toy.
