Does anybody know anything about this car outside of Phila? Tough to tell anything from the description. My buddy wants this bad - he really likes these sedans. Has anyone checked it out?

The thumbnails don't seem to enlarge, but it looks like it has a dealer tag on the trunk.[^] It is a Champion so it won't have a lot of get up and go. But looks like it could be a really good deal. Betcha a Larkshine would make it look great. Last registration of 93-94 says to me at some point it was restored or well taken care of from the beginning.

I believe it has the original paint; also it was last listed at $1K on Craigslist and he's open to reasonable offers. He's a realtor settling the estate. That is one that really has to be seen in person.

If you have cooliris, you can get them to enlarge, but they are fuzzy. It looks like an excellent deal, though.
