LOL! Even without the damage, no way that car was worth $10,000.

Transmission V8 Automatic-TH200 R/400 Jasper Turbo Hyrdamatic -- umm, OK...... Whipers?

Door is dented bad, but not too bad. Umm...... it's smashed to the point the whole thing would need to be replaced. Needs a new quarter, there's B and C pillar damage and I think the roof is crinkled. No frame damage? Somehow I doubt that.

Rust on the bottom edge of the trunk and door skin failure due to rust tells me this car is a rust bucket. This is a $500 parts car.

That is a heck of a dent... I'm not a fan of all the aftermarket crap on it but assuming the door is the only damage, 1k to 1.5k would be the most I would ask for it. It's not an SS and he is asking SS money for it now at 4.5k

Roof also has damaged and I would guess the door hinge area is also damaged.

Worth well more than $500 as a parts car but that's much closer to reality than $4,500. The level of rust that was hidden by the lower chrome doesn't look too promising.

Actually I'd say IF you purchased you'd get a 'totaled' title if insurance claim was brought against damage. With it not fixed, tells me either there was no insurance on car or he pocketed the money and you get the 'totaled' vehicle. Just checked, NADA for a complete and good condition car is....what he is asking for now lol, 4500 dollars.

LOL, most overpriced monte I've ever seen and that's not even considering he is asking for "4500k"

Edit: oh jesus he comes up in my local craigslist search...

Parts car! Yeah, that cabin is toast!

Roof buckled, rear quarter is about 6" pushed in, rear window about to pop out, hinge bulkhead pushed in, rocker panel is also pushed in, etc...
Here's that rust on the trunk lid

You can also see alot of orange peal in the paint, probably a poor repaint, maybe even rattle can.

I am sure there was a big shower of brown dust when that got t-boned. Noticed the big strip of rust along the lower edge of the right door.
I agree with the assumption insurance paid $4500 for the car. The owner kept the car with a salvage title. Now he's selling the wreck with the dream of making another $4500.

"The only bad thing is that the right Passenger door is dented in and the Window Arms are gone so you cannot roll the window down."


this is a quote from let go and the only indication at all that there is damage to that side of the car because he did not post a pic of that side!

oh also it has a racing transmission.

Wow,, that's absolutely crazy. I'd be one unhappy camper if I went to look at that car based on the letgo add. At least on Craigslist you waste no time determining the guy is delusional or in total denial due to post accident shock or brain damage.

Guess I should have bought the local to me, Silver/Grey 87 with 58,000 miles that rode and drove fine but needed tires, a headliner, most all the rubber replaced, cracked dash, leaking non functional A/C (probably only needed Freon) and had a little surface rust (needed a paint job) for what I thought was too much at $5500 - lol.


Original owner of 1985 SS black hardtop w/gray interior. Frame-on restoration - 406 sleeper w/ heavily ported FIRST TPI. However the 1.875" headers, 3.5" duals, TH400, Ford 9", notched frame, and 10-point cage w/swing-out bars might tip you off it's not a lil' ole 305 TPI. Other mods: 2" drop, 18" wheels, f/r disk brakes, and custom stereo system.

CL ad says "$1", now that's a deal. If you don't mind the drafty door jamb, bent roof, bent b and C pillar.
