You could spend about $150,000 restoring that car and be able to turn around and sell it for 50 to $60,000!

I love those old babes but I would only buy one that is good enough to use without doing anything cosmetic to it. Anything beyond basic maintenance on one will kill your wallet!

looks like a good candidate for a mechanical resto, scrub it down with CLR, buff it and drive!
