Default Okay guys here are the pics I have of the 63 Falcon Wagon I am looking at.

What do you all think? Resonable cost, etc.

That one rear qtr looks like it may be an issue?

the current owner had been using it as a daily commuter. He has a new petronix unit in it.

Bryan.. I think it's a good solid car to refurbish. Offer him $1k at most. Cars like that are hard to find in the Northeast. When you're done with it, I'll buy it to replace my F150.

Hmm, well, that's what I am struggling with, he is asking 3,900 for it.

There is another one up in Renton Wa and that one is listed for 2,500, maybe I could con El Guapo to check it out. Noted another one, but a four door in the same shape near here and it shows for 3,500 OBO.

SO? offer him a grand... leave him your phone number. You'd be suprised. My buddy used to do that all the time. The deals he'd get drove me nuts. Brought home a NICE 65 Bird for $200.00 once. The guy called him a month after he offered him $200... said "come get it." I've learned to do it myself now... I'm usually too impulsive.

Yep, impulsive, that would be me as well... have nothing to loose by doing it so I think I will do that.

Thanks for the tip.

Kool, thanks, I will see where the one down here goes first. I'm trying decide if I should call him and low ball him, or drive down to see it and then low ball him with the cash. Only thing is, that's a 2 hour drive one way.

Thumbs up where is she

Rusty
where is this located you said 2 hours south I live in the Sacramento area. and NO not to buy it but to check it out and get a feel of how he feels about the car.

You might have a problem with me if it was an automatic. but being a stick I would not be able to drive it to much knee sugary made sure of that.

The area looks familiar just let me know.
