    The front wheel looks larger than the rear ones.

    That could very well be the one my buddy sold around the Air Force base up there. It was originally white.

    Last we heard it was flat black with hoops. If it's got a full tan bench interior I bet it's the one. Was so clean underneath when he bought it. Zero rust not even surface rust. That's been about seven years so it may not be that way anymore.

    Hell to the yizzah! Looks like it comes from around here. Do they allow shitty wheels like that in NJ? I wouldn't even put "rims" like that on a derby car, it's just adding insult to injury. On the bright side, you could buy this shitbox, sell the wheels to some scumbag and get your money back. Then just whack some turbines or PI wheels on it for dirt cheap.

    If the price was right... I'd do it just for the shock value.

    Sent the link to my buddy. He says it's very likely his old car judging by the exhaust pipe.

    Minus wheels the current seller paid $400.

    Body seems good except for the clear. I guess it does not start. Still if it is rust free they are getting harder to find.

    Yeah that one's not bad-looking. Mechanical issues are easier than rust issues...

    This! So much this!

    I don't have tons of money to throw at rust, but I can do most mechanical and electrical stuff myself. Some day in the very distant future I'll buy a nice Panther for its body and frame, working Engine and/or trans not required.
