  • Very reasonable 66 Cruiser

    Sure looks like a good car for the money:

    That looks like a very low price to me. But I suppose by the time you get everything repaired and repainted, you'll have more in it than it's worth. I was surprised to read that it's a Cruiser model, as it looks very bare bones (cheap) on the outside. A dark color would improve the looks of it dramatically, perhaps a dark metallic red or black. If I had some money and a larger shed, I might be interested. [8D]

      True Brent, but the BIN is actually rational, especially considering usual eBay prices[xx(] right now there's a 64 2dsd on there, probably beyond saving, with an opening bid of $3500[xx(] it's about the 5th time- it was originally starting at $8500[)]

        That was my reaction too. A '66 Cruiser is a very plush, comfortable car. This one had disc brakes, power steering, reclining seats and it had A/C at one time. I think the seller gave a very honest appraisal of the car and,, if he isn't familiar with the cars, he may have overstated what he saw as defects.

          Looks like a super bargain to me. Wish it was closer to home. What a great solid body.

          Somebody snap this up for the buy it now price!

            Steven is a club member, I have not talked to him about the car but he might have just picked it up to save and offer it for sale the only thing it is missing is the vinyl roof, everything else looks like stock cruiser picture show power steering and power disk brakes, good price if some one wanted a cruiser...Bob

              If I was in California, I would definitely snatch this car up and make a daily driver out of it.

              No smog, no yearly inspection hassle, and a good price on a clean looking car.

              If it was a two door or a wagon it would be long gone.

                Looks like well-worth the $$ to me. Not all '66 Cruisers had a vinyl top; it was an option so it probably never had one, although I agree it would have dressed the car up.

                  I would have seriously considered it except I am only interested in Stude-powered cars currently. But I can tell anyone interested that the 283 in that car is as solid and dependable as was ever built, and can be perked up to rather peppy for minimal cost and effort (unlike Studes[:I]).

                  All in all, a great car for a budget hobbyist with limited interest and/or ability to work on them.

                    That IS a great deal!

                    It's a good thing the amount of desire for the vehicle you want (but have no room for) is proportional to it's distance from you.

                      Nice looking 20-footer. It's in no worse shape than what I started with in Barney; needs all the usual stuff, but it's a '66!

                        A big thank you to all of you for your comments. I am just wanting to see this car go to a good home, if someone does a BIN I'll almost brake even. Wouldn't it be fun to save them all.
