LEADS: FOR SALE: 69 SC/Rambler

http://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/cto/2083614937.html

Hmmmm... $42,000. No door tag.

Looks like the stock fan shroud is missing, not sure though. And I thought the standard SC/R seat upholstery was charcoal colored?

LEADS: FOR SALE: 69 SC/Rambler

Marc there are a number of issues with this vehicle. Looks like nice car, but just my
observations from photos. For what they asking....get correct 390 valve covers, oil cap &
brake MC cover it was part of 390 AMX chrome package. Bigger issues are cracked out
steering wheel, one can have them redone for under $350, makes big difference. I also
would splurge and get another SC/Rambler decal kit from Phoenix Graphics and this time,
don't put the trunk blue stripe on when drunk, it is WAY off in one photo. And I sell
reproduction door trim tags, this car could use one, you have good eyes Marc. There is
also rubbers missing at jambs, Eagle oil filler dipstick, how hard would it be to paint
that engine color for instance, tons of little detail stuff, but for $42K asking price
should be done already. Looks to have incorrect mirrors, I have a set of original Hurst
mirrors if they want. Also looks to have the red billboard on side incorrect angle paint.
Might be why this car has been on craigslist since new it seems.

Here is a gold level car to compare it with, if some of you can open up both windows to
compare photos side by side like I can with my futuristic 1946 DuMont computer here go
take a look:

Eddie,

Frankly unless there is some good documentation indicating its originality, I'd have to believe this is a clone. The missing door tag is the sour milk smell. If it is a clone, it's worth the sum of its parts plus some for labor. That would add up to more like $20k -- and even then, all of the issues raised would have to be right.

If it is original, I'd want some sort of proof -- like a photo trail from the family(ies) that owned it before, or some original documents, etc.

You should offer the seller some of your stock for upgrading it as needed.
