When you're faced with an unpleasant task that you really don't want to do, sometimes you just have to dig deep down inside and somehow find the patience to wait for someone else to do it for you.

Ashes to ashes, rust to dust.

What was the seller's mindset like?

"They don't make these anymore, I know what its worth"?
"It would be worth $60k restored"?

or more like:

"If you can get it on a trailer without it breaking up and spreading itself over the paddock, you are welcome to it"?

Cheers,

He is asking $500 ONO , he told me yesterday when he FINALLY returned my call that 2 other people had looked at it and walked so I knew it was going to be bad, but getting this thing onto a trailer without it ending up in 3 or 4 pieces without the aid of a backhoe or crane is going to be quite the mission. I offered $100 and am waiting to hear back.

I guess there are a heap of salvageable parts, but wow, that body is pretty sad. It will be quite a challenge to get that home Blacky. Looks like the bonnet has been left up for a year or two. $100 seems pretty fair given the mess. Good luck.
