Tires, struts, battery, all the rubber hoses and seals, and then the A/C. A lot of parts.
    This car is painted white. It will need a full paint strip before it can be regrained, if the purchaser wants to return it to stainless. It looks like part of the T panel and a test strip on the driver's door was already stripped.

    That’s a lie that says “Big MAC” or something.

    Honestly.

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    The paint on the T panel has pealed off over time i think.

    Ah yes, I see more paint on the T panel bubbling or peeling. It's hard to tell from the angle of the photo. That points to an improper paint job to begin with, or the car has spent a lot of time in the elements. I think the purchaser needs to budget a paint strip in the decision to get this car.

    This car has been sitting for a long time. The radiator and fans are missing and the engine was partially disassembled. you can just make out the condenser sitting on the ground. But otherwise it is a complete car. Lots of frame rust though... it also appeared to me like the front end of the body was lifted off of the frame... not sure exactly what I was looking at when I peered under there, and I didn't take any pictures of that unfortunately, but there was definitely significant space between the top of the frame and the bottom of the fiberglass.
    Did you get the VIN number?
