    I think that's the one that I said I would pass on. IIRC, the interior is completely trashed.

    Supposedly parked for a decade with a window open. The interior is super basic, and 100% trashed. There was moss growing on the driver’s seat, every door panel was ruined, dash pad was cracked all over, and every surface was dirty/moldy.

    The only improvement it’s had since it first popped up on CL is someone found out that the engine turns over.

    Ooooh, no wonder there were no interior pics. Gotta always wonder about that.

    ‘79 LTD-S Sedan:
    https://gadsden.craigslist.org/cto/d...630738934.html

    Pretty darn basic. I don’t even see a tilt steering wheel. Looks like it got an analog clock, vinyl roof, and A/C. The price rather fair all things considered.

    I like it. Nice and basic. Clean slate to start with.

    Nice bumpers. Those fenders are goals or my car. I have always wanted a set of them. Love the detail in them .

    A person might be able to pick this 79 Marquis up reasonably. $400 including fees ? Dash pad is still in good shape. Might be a "donation" car.

    Nope, Copart & that are ridiculous. I don't know how anybody does it but Ashley and I tried once. A $600 dollar truck became a $3,200 truck once fees and shipping were factored in. Fees kept rising as the end of auction dawned. Was ludicrous. What's worse is it took over 3 months for them to refund Ashley's deposit.

    It's only hard to find for shops it seems. Databases seem to call for the mustang or F150 pumps and not the one actually designated for the panthers. It's rather annoying since the parts stores all seem to have it right. Probably all-data issue.
