    Offered to me by a friend.....in the barn for the last 27 yrs.
    Thoughts/ comments on body style?
    Some friends say its hideous others love the look.

    I like the body style of the COUPE, but not the tudor sedan

    Who cares what others think?
    If you like it, and the price is right for you, buy it.
    Otherwise, don't

    I posted a pic of one here a few months back. It was a '47(?) coupe with a big block Ford in it, subframed with p/s and discs, and with an auto (C6 I guess). It was in a junkyard and priced at $100 over the value of the weight. No one seemed interested.

    Not a huge fan of the sedans, but if it's the little three window business coupe I'd say go for it. They make a good looking hot rod too!
