I found this little Club Coupe the other day. I don't know a thing about shoebox Fords other than I've always liked them. This one is all original...everything except for the tires. The current owner got it from his Grandad about 10 years ago and used to drive it around every so often but hasn't had it started in a year. He put a new battery in it and the starter will hit but won't crank the engine, even on a jump. The body is super clean with the original paint and no prior body work. There is some rust bubbles starting on the rockers and the body supports under each door are rusted but that's all of the rust. The interior is all original and is torn a bit up front and the top of the rear seat is shredded. The headliner is intact and there is aftermarket carpet in it. The floorpans have zero rust. All lights and gauges work. The underside of the car has zero rust and is basically clean. There are no brakes at all other than the emergency brake. In fact, they've been disconnected. The tires are dry rotted. The glass is perfect and the windows roll up and down and the rear windows open. The fella that has it knows zero about cars and I suspect has never done a single thing to it in 10 years but drive it. Ther were no oil spots under it at all and you can tell it's been in the same spot a long time. The oil is clean and so is the coolant. He wants around $4000 for it. What do you think???? In it's current state...it's kind of a pig in a poke. If I dink around and get it running (which probably won't take much) he might not be as flexible on price but I don't want to screw the guy either as I don't think he really knows much at all about older cars.
