My recent post on Fordbarn provided several good leads for a sedan delivery. I have been looking for over a year and have yet to find one I would purchase. I guess I am fussy when it comes to the condition of the sheet metal, but I know they are out there so I continue to search. A local car turned up which a friend of mine went to inspect and was reported to be in good condition except for some body rust and bad quarter panel rust. I know what my body feels like after 70 years, so I should expect the delivery to be a little blemished. Long story short, the car sold immediately and I was sent pictures of the car to view. I thought I would purchase one like this, but then the phone rang and one from Ohio, with a Lobeck chassis, etc. was offered and I am awaiting pictures and details. It turns out Charlie who owns the car is a fellow GM employee who has had the car for many years and has decided to sell.
How long do you continue to look before you just purchase a coupe and be happy? I think I am there if Charlie’s car doesn’t meet my expectations. Coupes are more plentiful and about the same price to purchase so why not give one a try.
Still searching for the delivery.
