I dont know what the state of these two cars is, are they terminally rotten, are they doable, is one better than the other? etc etc, but they look to have a host of usable parts.

So what i am thinking, is it better and more economic to purchase whole cars and ship, i have a contact in So-Cal, he ships a fair bit of stuff inc whole vehicles, i may ask him, how much to ship a car, the problem then would be the logistics involved in recovering these cars and transporting them from San Francisco to the south of the State, ideas anybody?
Hmm, you could always pick up a parts car from someone like me, and pay my fuel and hotel to get it to So-Cal or figure it into the cost, and I would get a paid trip down to So-Cal to see friends etc.

With my rig, it would be like $350 of fuel to run from N Cal to So-Cal.

My 58 needs a passenger floor pan and is showing signs of rot in the rear deck lid(small but there...). It spent it's entire life here in N Ca, not even near the coast.
My 60 was in Los Angeles until 1978 and I've got rust and bondo in the rockers. Came that way from California.

$600 for the pair is a good deal since that is the cost of scrap metal of that tonnage. So you could never lose money, and probably make a lot of money on ebay selling parts.

Default Still available?

Please contact me with a message if either if these are still available... I am in the middle of restoring my t bird and over the weekend the guy packed up shop and ran away with a bunch of my parts...including my newly rebuilt engine. I am searching for an economical solution for me to replace some of the missing items.

Sorry to hear your newly rebuilt engine was ripped off. A good 390 is very attractive for many Ford cars and trucks. If I were you, I would do everything possible to get it back. - Dave
