    Exactly.....the car might be a total Bondo bomb for all we/or you know.

    My advice is to take a fridge magnet (like the RockAuto ones) and see if it falls of the body panels - vertical panels especially. Fridge magnets won't harm the surface, but wont stick if the Bondo is too heavy.

        I passed. Seller wouldn’t come down below 25k. Metal work done but the fenders were cratered with rust and patched in several spot. Needs a passenger door. Missing a bunch of parts. The Dana rear is gone. No air cleaner or exhaust manifolds, etc... All interior soft parts unusable.
        Not F6 spring green. Coded for F8.
        The engine is a 1972 and the trans is a 1973.

          No sense buying a car you know you would ultimately be unhappy with.

          So was it a factory column or console shift? And was it coded for a dana rear axle?

            440 cars with automatics came with the 8 3/4 as standard. You could have upgraded to the Dana. 4 speed 440 cars came standard with the Dana.
            I think you were wise to pass at 25k. Cars that have the metalwork done and are in primer "ready for paint" are usually a problem. I'll bet you would have ended up stripping it back down to bare metal.

                  Would have also passed.
                  No way i would shell out big bucks for something like that. :D

                    For what it supposedly is, 15 may be right or maybe a little short. I just bought a rotisserie and paid 1500.00

                      Engine and trans are different years from the car? Dana is missing? It was his daily driver? How would it get that way? My guess is he was parting it out and changed his mind. Destroyed the potential value of the car

                        There’s a pretty big gap in value between F6-F8!
