I found a '63 Cruiser in Modesto, CA for $750. The ad is not very descriptive, but the car looks straight from the single picture. Some parts are missing, but probably worth a call. See the link below.

I've already spoken to him. The car is missing both seats, grille, carb, horn button, butter knife trim on rear right door, left tail light assy., and other parts. It's a cruiser and you're right it's in otherwise straight condition.

In case anyone has the money, and gets to it faster than I can, the numbers are as follows:

vin: 63V27295
Engine Number: P102097
Firewall number: 63V-Y8 4587

No title. The state of Cal is looking for $400 (back registration).

Judging by all the above it has a 289 (standard equipment for a Cruiser) with a (missing) two barrel carb.
I asked about the carb and he said it was missing. They haven't opened the trunk so don't know if anything is stashed in it. There was a minor mishap on the trailer so the bottom of the front clip is creased. I don't think I saw bumpers on the picture either. The paint is good, has aftermarket carpets that he says are in excellent condition. Apearances say it's just a hop skip and jump from going down the road. By the way, the car's colour? Fire engine red, with black and blue interior.

Ph: 209-579-5998 He's there from 8am to 5pm.

If you get to this before I do, no hard feelings.;) Just keep it from the crusher![:0]

Gee, looking at it in a colour picture... Looks more like lipstick pink, or puce.[xx(]

Lotsa Larks!

The way that these fenders were made, without an inner fender, was a perscription for rust in the heels and eyebrows. Sigh...:(

'63 fenders aren't the same as '64. I mean, they'll bolt on and all, it's just they don't look the same. The '64 - '66 fenders are squarer. Don't like them myself. I like the rounder, more Mercedes look of the '59 to '63 front clip. It's interesting how similar the front of an old Jeep Wagoneer and pickup (flatter it's true) are to the early larks (59-61) and Champs. Isn't it?

Romo auto wrecking, just south of Shaw and a stone's throw east of 99.
Most of the good stuff is LONG gone. (55 stuff as well, Tom)

Todd, I felt guilty after telling you that last night (knowing it would only grind on you to think about it). I went out and looked thru my private stash. I've got a pair of good, solid, 63 fenders I'll let you have for the junkyard price. Hell, for all I know I bought these from him some years ago when I had the crazy idea I could SAVE all the stuff from there - knowing as I did that their days were numbered.
Heh - this was right after I GAVE them some Stude sheet metal because I don't like lugging it around to meets and I figured it stood a better chance of finding a home thru them then it would sitting behind my parts shed!
Jim Heiple bought a load of stuff outta this yard some years ago and had told the owner that he was gonna have a truck stop by as the opportunity presented itself from time to time and pick up more. Best I know - after that initial load, no more left for PA.
Last time I was up there, he had a super-straight '64 Challenger 4-dr that he wanted $300 for. Being car poor already, I resisted.[:I]

Todd - I will let you buy these fenders. YOU have to figure out how to get them to where you are. That's WITHOUT me building crates, trying to somehow wrap, package, box or otherwise prepare them.
I can do pics if you want.
They're white - but not gleamingly perfect. Certainly NOT without some surface rust here and there but in NO way cancer-ridden pieces of iron oxide.:D

Greyhound's your best bet. As Biggs said, he doesn't want to wrap them. A few strips of packing tape to hold the shipping label and they won't be touched except to transfer from one bus to another. I've received front fender assemblies by Greyhound with very satisfactory results.

Tom,

Technically, they're closed. So just dropping by might leave you disappointed. Call me and I'll tell you how to be sure you can get in. I was told by someone that was there in recent months that they've gotten rid of alot of the stuff they held for decades. They have to - but they're still sorta sellin' out the back door, if you will.;)

If you want to ship fenders unwrapped, well, bad idea. I know, I'm a driver with Greyhound. In fact, it's distinctly possible I'll have those fenders in my baggage bins as they make their way to Vancouver BC and over the border on their way to Ontario.

That said, the agent may not allow it. They will see all the sharp edges and may or may not let them go. They need at least minimal wrapping. For heavens sake, just tape some broken-down boxes over them. Greyhound is'nt concerned with your fenders. They're concerned about the liability to everyone else's bags.

Oh! I forgot! Our mechanic in Portland restored a '62 convertable for his sister (did a bang up job too[8D]) and would get a kick out of seeing those fenders. It's a good thing he's a devout christian or they might go missing in Portland...

If you buy it, there's baggage that goes with it. Like the State of California looking for $400. They are ruthless at getting "their" money. The six hundred dollar price is no bargin. Unless you are willing to settle for a parts only car. Then the six hundred dollar price is still no bargin. If you ever register this car, California can't be mentioned. To a California resident, this car won't be drivable without paying up first. Oh, and one other thing. This guy doesn't even have any kind of a guaranteed title. So if you buy it, the old owner could surface. In that case, you will have to jump through legal hoops to keep posession of the car. Expensive hoops.[}:)]

This is the main reason I haven't picked it up myself. The second is that I have no way to get it home... This is so frustrating.[V] This is a viable car that can be put back on the road. I don't want this car to be parted out or crushed. One or the other seem to be inevitable...:(

Yes, Todd and no, Bob. That's how it's gotta be done, but you can't just "paste" it. Before you right click to past, you need to click on the little icon at the top of your post that says "insert image", it looks like a little scene with two mountains and a yellow sky. That will give you [img/]. Then you need to insert your cursor between center brackets, then right click and paste. Then make certain your cursor is beyond the last bracket. Scroll to bottom of post and click "Preview" to see if it works. If it does, close that window and "Post New Reply".

Should you ship with us, the baggage handlers will wet their pants when they see that! They'll know exactly who you're talking about. Let me inquire about Canadian shipping. I know we do it all the time. The trick is getting it over the border.

As for notification, that depends on the agent. They vary in sloppiness. Some, like Redding, Medford (OR), and Roseburg (OR), are really concientious about it. Others aren't. Unfortuneately, our company facilities are the worst at informing the reciepient.

Gmon, think maybe you could post some more pictures?

Todd, I'm not sure how things are done in Canada. I drive in the U.S. When we have an agent like your dry cleaners, they sometimes refuse to recieve GPX shipments. Canada does ten times the GPX the U.S. does so it gets there somehow. Some of the buses in Canada even pull GPX trailers behind. With some of our agencies and how hard it is to get in and out, I wouldn't want to tow those trailers. We barely make it in and out of some of our facilities as it is. Who knows, they may take shipments and will hold it in the back with everyone's drycleaning in your location. Is there a company facility near by, just in case?

I'll ask the agent here in Redding about your problem. Kathleen worked for Greyhound for twenty years or so before being forced to become an agent. So if anyone knows how to do this she will.

And yes you should give Bob a contact number. Sometimes if you ship with a specific request for notification, the agent will be more apt to call. With something so large, they will probably do so just to get it out of their facility.

Maybe we should start another thread?[:I]

The hassle is'nt the problem. We have what the Canadian government calls 'open cargo bins.' This means that anything can be inserted into the cargo under our buses. Unfortuneately, they're right.

Canada will allow us to ship across the border if we would be willing to seal our bins. That makes any stops impossible. What would people do with their luggage?

Oh yes, and it still takes us between two and four hours to get across the Canadian border. Thirty minutes to an hour for the Mexican border.

Seems I've had an attack of foot-in-mouth-disease again. Sorry Guido!
