This car was for sale this summer and he wanted thirty-five hundred for it. Wouldn't accept less. Now, he's selling it as a parts car. Pity... I had the money this summer and now...:(

The car has a beautiful interior, it's just a rust bucket. It would be wonderful for someone who has a rust-free (or nearly) with an interior toasted and roasted.

One good thing about that bad of rust is that you can likely just give a heave-ho and pull the seats right out.;)[:o)][:0][B)]

Wow!! would really be a shame not to restore her-- Seen a lot worse up here in Maine!! looks real complete-- with so many after market body repair panels available-- wish I lived closer to her:( Once she is parted out,it will just be another Stude gone--:( Nice body style as well-- Somebody save her[8D]

It appears to have a good steering wheel that someone here is looking for.

I would guess that his original price was based on the usual confusion between the value of a two door sedan versus a coupe/Starlight.

It's interesting that he stresses the bad brakes in this auction. The earlier auction this seller stressed the driveability of the car. In fact, many of the pictures were on the road around his town. I wonder if a rusted out line or corroded flex line gave way?

Sold for $660. Definitely worth that; in fact, probably about right. It would be great to find a rust-free WC/SW car with the usual fried interior and combine it with this one. Someday I would love one in this body style!

Fredk, any pictures of yours??

Looks like you could just get some rockers, brakes, tires, and make it a driver! Hope it went to a good home.
