No Power Brakes, No Problem: 1970 Ford Galaxie 500 Country Sedan Wagon

I’ve got to assume that prices of used cars (classics, late models, you name it) are gonna take a hit due to this COVID-19 thing…firstly because the economy is playing rope-a-dope and second because people are supposed to be sheltering in place instead of going around and buying/selling cars. Regardless if you surf over to the craigslists in the places hit by this nasty virus, you’ll still see people selling cars…and while nobody loves a vulture…everybody loves a deal?  Is it wrong to look at Seattle or the Bay Area Craigslist and see what you can get with a face mask and a pair of rubber boots? Find this 1970 Ford Galaxie 500 Country Sedan Wagon offered for $5000 near Seattle, WA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
