Might need a close up in person inspection. But for what Ive seen the last year or so.
I dont think this car is to far out of line.

I think it looks nice!

Surprised a GTX has manual steering/brakes.

Price doesn't seem too bad, it should sell fairly quickly if it is as good as it looks.

Looks like original quarters and not rusty, nice interior, decent plating and all there.
Not #s but if the paint is decent, looks like a fair deal.
Heck, I'm tempted !

Yeah, an offer of $25k could buy it, and that would be a sweet deal. I like the color, wheels, interior, and that's it's an auto.

The more I look at it the more I am tempted...

I've never been interested in cars that have been in the mid-west or east due to rust issues but that one looks pretty good underneath.

Wife said 'just have it shipped out here'. Do I need another car??? Hmmm...

Ive looked at the ad multiple times and everytime and I think the car is a decent buy for whats shown. Maybe its a rot box in person. but my gut tells me otherwise.
if this car can be bought for mid 20s, I think it would be a solid buy.
Trunk paint looks so so . So IMO have it looked at in person before making a final decision one way or the other.
Im already committed to a car or I might be tempted to have someone take a look at it for me

Another way to look at it... What have you seen lately that is much better for the same or less money?

I sold one in the same colors about 5 years ago to a friend, except it was a 4-speed and air grabber for $5K. Sure it didn't run and needed a resto, but it came with all the AMD sheet metal in needed. Wish I wouldn't have done it the second I sold it to him, but he hasn't touched it yet... frown

Agreed,

and thats the problem. For the money I think this car is one of the better deals Ive seen for a while . Its not perfect, but its not 50k either
