If it is in good shape no rust or anything at least 18 but it goes up from there. You can get them for less but they tend to have little flaws here and there

If your talking about a car your thinking about buying, then check it over very carefully!.. If it looks too good to be true then check it over once more!.. First car I almost bought was a '69 fast back!.. I looked immaculate!.. But after I looked at it closely, half that car was made of Bondo!!... Lol

Well how far of a drive is it for you? Do you mind saying how much they are asking? And yes look very very carefully at the car if you can. I spent about 2 hours inspecting my fastback before I bought it. If you do go look at it there are tons of problem areas you should check out if you don't already know them. And is it a running vehicle, do you have pics?

Be careful. Don't give addy, ect. If they want to ship it to you, and everything is texting or email... Run like the wind... Many scams out there. If it sounds to good to be true, and it involves lots of money and long distances... It usually doesn't work out.

They don't give up easily either... Don't give any personal info and double guess everything. Until u meet them in person...

Hey fresh, did u ever think about getting a third party inspection done? I'm from Canada and I used an insp. company when I wanted to buy a 66 coupe. Thank god I did!! What a mess of a car. But you should be very careful, use a big company, I would recommend Automobile Inspections. They are out of Connecticut. But also work in Canada. Just an amazing company!! They sent me over 75 photos, 18 page report.
