    I figured if JDP saw it he'd be on it. Certainly it's a desirable car at a good price.

    Great work on the pictures Steve, and for going all out to help a member! John owes you. I would be comfortable knowing what I was getting thanks to your pictures; you knew just what to show. As stated, it's a fair price for the car as a keeper, not enough room for a flip. Would be cool to see it redid Good show all!

    Not sure if a member got it in the long run, but I do owe Wolfie for saving me from a at best a break even deal. It worked the way it should of though. I committed to the buy if the car was as described, but there were too many unknown issues that Wolfie found. The owner was unaware, but honest and he had buyers behind me, so it worked out.

    Exactly what I fear. If I just have to spend a hour on a cheap Avanti's trunk light, think how nuts I'd go on on that Daytona.

Can anyone decipher what the engine is? No boss for the engine number up front at all. Steve
    For a keeper, it would be a bargain. You'd be in the car for under 5K as a nice driver, and you'd make money on a future resale. It's just too close a deal for a me with shipping and it's the kind of car I might tend to go overboard on.

    The story that it had sat in an old chicken house for some time seemed to check out. Steve

    Add the fact that the seat inserts are not stock, and it needs a headliner is a deal killer for me. Thanks to Wolfie for getting a better looks. Here's his pics:

    OK, just got a update on the car and now wondering if I should back out since the owner has a local guy ready to buy as a backup. The car is pretty much as described but with a few issues. It needs a new, $300-$400 dual exhaust system, no carpets, another $300, $250 for tires, maybe $200 for the brakes. Some minor rust blisters down low on the fenders, some floor patching and at least a partial repaint. That puts me over 5K in pre flip with shipping and without my labor and that's scares me a bit. The biggest issue is the engine is apparently not original to the car. The owner has kindly allowed me to review the pictures I'll get later before letting a local guy pick it up Monday. I may decide to let the local snag it. BTW, if he is a forum member, let me know, and I'll walk away.

    Wolfie is on the way to look at it and tell me if I got a deal or not.

    Bought it. Thanks Bam's, should be in Maryland in a few weeks. The car was last on the road in 1972, never touched since.

    I am not 100% sure its the same car but I looked at one in that same area several years ago that was a super solid car. It is about 2 hours away but I would go check it out and take lots of pics this evening if anyone is seriously interested in it. Steve
