    I bought this car as a parts car for my 65 mustang, i`m taking the rack and pinion steering, power steering pump, power brakes, and some other parts off the car. It has the V-6 option, factory air car, auto trans, 3.40 rear axle, the motor seems good although i can`t get it to run (but I am not spending money on that part anyway), it has a clean OK title, it is located in Mulberry, AR, and the body is pretty straight, other than the front fenders are a little bowed in from leaning over them working on the car (pretty sure they`ll pop out). the interior is kinda ragged, the front buckets are still in it but the back seat is gone, the keys are missing, and it`s sitting on 4 flats. Here is one thing I`ll tell you, you will have a hard time finding a straighter body with less rust than this one at $500 I`m selling it for. If you want pics, just ask and i`ll update the post. i will need time to get the parts i need off the car first just fyi.

    This is too good a car to go to the crusher, somebody could do well with this one.

    Here we go, first for $500 I aint washing it, I wont charge extra for the rat poop in the floor, and just for the record, I have $390 in this car, the $250 purchase price, $100 tow bill, and $40 to a guy to get it firing. We pulled the dizzy out to check the timing, and I can`t get it back in the hole, it`s like the oil pump shaft maybe pulled up out of its hole and is leaning to one side. I pulled what I thought was the timing CHAIN cover off of it...and yea 2 big fat gears both in good shape. When cranking it over with a battery it sounds good like all cylinders have compression and no funky sounds coming from anywhere.

    I just can`t make myself molest this car its too good to tear up.

    If you could ask her to flip them too that'd be awesome, and maybe if you get a chance grab some interior shots. Interior stuff is the hardest to come across.

    First $500 can take it. Still haven't got it running, but I think it's close.
