That's a "50-footer"- - - -looks good from 50 feet away, but once you peel back a layer or two, it's a pretty poor resto-mod. If I were in the market, (which I'm not) I'd start the bidding at about half the asking price, and wouldn't bargain up much, if at all.

"Could" be a good start on a nice driver. As Jerry mentioned, start low on the price. Check everything out with a magnet to see how many lbs of bondo is hiding under all that white. White paint is often used when body work is far less than acceptable, helps hide imperfections. Get it home, go over all the safety related details reparing/upgrading as needed. Drive it and enjoy while you source a good LS engine and automatic, install as time allows. You'll have a plus 20 mpg car with great performance that's able to run with no issues on todays gas.

If that is, you needed another project smile
