• He moved from Wisconsin to south Austin, TX and found out what that AC was for. Nice car to fix up a little and drive a lot. But with gas prices back on the way up the driving might be limited to Sunday afternoon cruising.

  • Interesting stuff on the speedo details, and +1 on the lights! I wonder what the largest engine displacement has been for a FWD vehicle. With a 7.5 ltr. V8, this has got to hold record…?

  • Lots of red flags: 1. Didn't know the history of the car's features (as mentioned already) 2. Car was in snow country (salt) 3. Not registered in Texas so you'll have paperwork problems 4. AC doesn't work (expensive to fix), 4. driver's side door missing an armrest (good luck finding another one), 5. automatic retractable grill for using headlights does not work. They are bungeed open (shows a lack of care, love and maintenance for a classic car)

  • Looks can be deceiving, but being that this one is right at half a century old, I'll cut it some slack and think it's in pretty good condition, IMO. At this price point, spending some coin on getting it up to snuff would be worth it. Totally agree with you on the headlight grill actuators. A quick five minutes of searching and I found a company that used to sell a full electric kit (only $105 a side) but the website is no longer…..

  • Simon Pegg drove one of these in the Australian black comedy "Kill Me Three Times". Seeing it made me wonder if they were ever sold down there or if it was someone's special import.
