  • That's it! Put that Stude Out In The Street!!!!

    They say behind every man is a good woman. Somehow I think a woman was behind this also:

    Must not have met Reserve. Was recently on the 'Bay and discussed here (I think).

      That looks like a pretty solid convertible, judging by the picture of the trunk. It must have been stored inside for a long time. I hope that it doesn't get literally shoved off to the curb, it deserves a better fate. A weakness of the ad is that I only saw one picture of the engine. It was a picture of the bottom of the oil pan.

        Considering they're asking $9900 for it, it should be safe. Probably a good way to display the vehicle and all associated stuff that goes with it.

            The car had been brought to the Northeast Zone Meet this fall and offered for a lot more money, no takers then. It did appear to be a solid car and a good starting point if you want a bullet-nose convertible. At least, you don't need to spend time and money fighting rust, though there is plenty of work to do.

                  I think they were asking $25k for it at the zone meet.

                    Where does it say that the car was "put out in the street"? It looks like a deserted parking lot to me. Kudos to the guy for actually taking the time to drag the car outside.

                      So that is how you came up with your forum name? Pretty neat.

                        LOL! When I saw the thread title I wondered if a woman has ever said that. Of course, if she said it to me- about anything- she'd be the one finding herself in the street. Lot easier to find a replacement woman than a solid bulletnose convertible Personally, I refused to settle and therefore I have a woman that would never think of telling me something like that. I suppose it happens, though.

                        Anyway, based on what I saw in the ad, the BIN isn't that far out of line. That is, depending on actual condition and parts inventory/condition. The beauty of the BIN is it's highly unlikely anyone will click it, especially this time of year. If I was a serious buyer I'd take the chance that it likely won't meet reserve, then make an appointment to see it in person, ready to make a decent cash offer on the spot.

                        I'm going to guess it will be bid to about $5500, not meet reserve, and can be bought for about 70 crisp hundred-dollar bills...

                          I have a similar 52 2 door hard top that came with 51 front fenders and a 50 bullet center piece complete 50 dash too that I paid seven for.
                          Condition was similar though mine had allmost no rust.

                          So I guess I'm saying I don't think its too far off at that price.

                          But I'm kinda partial to the bullet noses.
