Speed Holes: 1964 Ford Galaxie Hardtop

I'm getting ready for the 4th of July and trying to get into the spirit of things , so I jumped when I saw a 2-door muscle car from tipper FuelTruck offered for a fabulous asking price.  What could possibly go wrong?  Find this 1964 Ford Galaxie Hardtop offered for $5995 via craigslist.  Tip from FuelTruck.




A 2-door hardtop Muscle car from the mid 1960s will fetch a pretty penny if it is sold on craigslist or some big name auction tent...but here we've got one that is offered for a huge discount.  What gives? The seller writes "OLDER RESTO SOME RUST SPOTS MUST SEE".  Let's take a closer look.



Egads, this isn't an older resto...this is a hunk of metal doing an incredible Swiss cheese impersonation.  Run away. Run FAR away.  Or pick this thing up for $4k, drive for a year (don't wait too long...) and sell it to someone else in a year for $4k.  Enjoy the breeze.

  1. That thing looks like it'll go fifty feet, then the doors and wheels fall-off from the rust. The floorboards prolly look like a glass-bottomed boat. Someone painted over RUST That's a clue!

  4. Blue Book restored value $18K, restoration costs $60K. Buy this car for a parts car and call it good.

  6. "PAINT WAS RECENTLY COLOR SANDED AND LOOKS GREAT - DRIVE AS IS OR RESTORE THE BODY RUST SPOTS
    TO BECOME A SHOW CAR."

    Umm, I don't know how you manage to color sand a car that has holes in it. I'd end up going right down to metal (or what's left of it).
