I am looking to sell this car as is. It is a great car that was rebuilt/restored in the late '80s. My father-in-law bought it, worked on it some and then became too ill to continue.
He purchased it around 2000. It was running well until he had a friend work on the water pump. Since then it has sat in the garage for 10 years.
This car is now part of an estate sale
VIN Style 64-6267BodyFW16697 ('62 series in '63). I believe it is the 429 with turbohydromatic trans.
We have the clean title and it is 2019 registered California, Stanislaus County.
See attached photos.
what is the price?
Listing says "Looking for about $6K OBO".
Yes, $6K OBO. I will be back in state in March where I will get more info on condition. It has been stored indoors in a very dry climate. I intend to crank it over to confirm the engine is not ceased, take a parts inventory, get more detail about interior, dash, convertible top condition, take more photos, etc.
Maybe pull the plugs and squirt some Inox, WD40 or similar in the plug holes and let it sit for a few hours, before turning it over by hand.
In my humble opinion, I wouldn't just put a battery in and crank it with the key after sitting for a while.
Thanks, good suggestion. Do you think it matters that the distributor has been removed, cranking by hand?
No, it won't hurt anything with the dizzy out.
If it turns over nicely, you might want to fit and time the dizzy and have it running.
