    which is what makes it worth $16,000.

    If he really is "firm" on that price, as nice as the car is, it will likely be back in his barn before long.

    It really looks beautiful from what we can see, but still.

    I did a quick look online and the car sold last September 1st at the Copart auction in Connecticut and the condition showed primary damage/mechanical, secondary damage/minor dent and scratches, no price. It was then sold Sept 20 by a private seller for $7125 , also in Connecticut with a probate title. Maybe it sold at the Copart auction on court order to get that title? That ad says it may or may not of had some paint work done but says nothing about the mechanical problem.:16suspect:
    I would guess that the guy bought the car at the Copart auction, fixed whatever was wrong mechanically, had the dent and paint fixed, then sold it to the guy who has it now but who knows. I wonder what the mechanical damage was? At Copart it usually means something major like an engine or trans. The owner may not even know unless the seller told him, and I doubt that.

    For the asking price, they should have bought white-wall tires....

    Wait, wait...the headliner is falling and the a/c compressor is frozen too? This is a nice car but he's at over double what I think it's actually worth...

    It's been at $12k for a long time on CL. Seller had it on BAT a while back; bid to $9k. Crazy he didn't take that. I guess he doesn't understand the market.

    Is that interior really stock. Not familiar enough to know, but it sure seems oddly matched to the door panels and other interior parts. The back seat fit seems loose to me. Also would there be any side scripts? Seems baron on the right side.
