Found this one in the classified ads and the asking price was a “little out there” given the amount of work its going to need. So, I let patience and diplomacy settle in over the next couple of days and eventually we came up with a very realistic price that reflects the real condition and current state of the market. It wasnt sold necessarily by choice, but the PO said that finishing the project was looking less and less like a reality.
History of this Vehicle
From what I can gather,, the car has spent most of its life in New England, and the fact that it wears the dealership emblem of an old friend of mine’s dealership may be a help when I need to start the paper trail.
Plans for this Vehicle
Immediate future is that its going into storage til Spring and I can start prioritizing projects vs. primary workspace.
