People ask me how to get into working on classic cars and I usually give them this advice; buy something inexpensive that needs mechanical work and isn’t a total rust bucket. Don’t buy a car that needs a total bare metal paint job before it looks respectable, and don’t buy something that is so rare you can’t find parts or advice for repairs. Get something like this 1962 Volvo PV544 offered for $3900 in Los Angeles, CA via craigslist.
From the seller:
1962 volvo pv544
title status: clean
Classic volvo pre smog. Last running a couple years ago. Will need battery, fuel drained etc to run again. Won’t take much honestly. Its been in the family over 30 years. California car – no rust. Registration is on non op. Pink slip clean /on hand / in my name. Would make a great family project. I am currently looking for a short to medium size school bus to convert so if you have one im open to trades. 30′ max. Thanks for your time, any questions contact me.
