He should've taken the $7600. That's probably more than it's worth. Just about every car that dealer has listed on Ebay has an unrealistic price.

I agree, John. The seller thinks he has gold. No, it's a pig in a poke.

I love the look of this car, and I would immediately start upgrading it to include a V8, three speed auto trans, etc. There's no A/C, PB or PS. But, 7k is way too much to start. This car is much better off appreciated for what it really is, a stock family transport perfectly suited for country roads.

Y'all have a great Thanksgiving. Thanks for the phone call and well wishes, Lenny Wheeler. BTW, I'm going to stick my neck out and wish the Detroit Lions a well deserved and glorious victory over the Houston Texans, today. - Dave

Not surprising, a lot of people get a piece of the pie along the way. He can ask for the moon and stars; who know, some collector who intends to keep this car as a garage queen may jump on it. In its original state, this model is nice to look at.

In my opinion, seven grand is twice what this car is worth.

You guys have been "right on the money" with this car.

It's been listed three times, and has ended with four-digit bids each time.
