Sorry didn’t read the rules but it not let me post it there and I refuse to let this car go to the crusher so I put it here where it let me. I sure most would have a bigger problem w/the fact that this car was destroyed. this cars is not mine and the guy is not making any money on it any body who knows anything will tell you metal is up to .11 cents pound and the scraper yanks the motor for export this is why he first offered it to me for 600 it wasn’t the money but my small long island house w/no property and to many cars already that my wife wants to kill me.

Car is still there friend of a friend came yesterday said he’d be back. But he was warned anyone who w/ the money takes it...


P.S I know I have know reputation here I stop but more and then and troll around had a 91 T-bird years ago before I was computer friendly but if you want to look me up I’m more of a regular at www.foxtbirdcougarforums.com and go buy the same screen name.

If anyone's interested in this at all, I work in Farmingdale, so I could go and take pictures for you. I wouldn't be able to inspect anything for anyone, because I wouldn't know what to look for, but still.

Sorry I have no pics and sorry again for going around the rules its light blue 2 door, talking to someone on the phone they asked when they found out what year it was if it was the big one or small one and I described the car as non suicide doors and he said it’s the big one maybe it’s a split year I’m learning too. I didn’t see if they worked it. Oh and though appears this is the birds w/the sequencer taillights

And its Light Blue ok. Should be a 390 4V then...

What color is the interior? Are they hubcaps or wire wheels?

Oh, I know which one you are talking about, that is a 64 Convert... He wants 25K for that, needs some small work last I saw it. Nice car though....

And he looks as if he has a 67/69 there too....

Its has a black Vinyl top not sure how many windows think 3 though by the time I find out tomorrow it might be to late he ant waiting till Sunday. Think the interior is black to not sure of the options though it’s a sharp looking car.
It’s going to be a sad day in the car world when he brings this car to the crusher. I would only hope the guys at the yard do the right thing but again nobody wants to take the day it take of running around and registering this I guess.

On the bright side another post for me

Sorry I know it’s kinda vague but the key to the fact is most got the gist of what it is and its 600 dollars. Tomorrow morning ill going to stop bye there and try and get more options but it will be to late this is really for someone who lives local just trying to save the car.

No I don’t understand what contacts you have and I did not know you personally were interested in it. why didn’t you just directly ask. I figured everyone was just asking curiosity questions and ill happy answer them to the best of my ability.
Again ill analogize to the moderators and members for circumventing around your rules but the bigger sin here will be this car being crushed.

I'm sure there would be a few people interested in this if THERE WAS MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CAR.

With that said...I'd be interested in it. NEED pictures though, first.

Heres some pics for you all sorry it’s a littlie tight there but I was in a rush to that my life.
Hope this answers a lot of questions at least. The interior pics came out blurry but I gotta tell you it’s next to perfect. The only real body damage is the hood; don’t know the history on that. The body it straight paint is old and it has signs of rust but not much.
Anyway heres another bump; part of me wants this not to go and hopefully my wife will give in and let me have it.

That does look good. If I didn't have to transfer in a few years, I think I could manage getting that to the house. A very solid project car. Really. That is very decent.

Dude, as long as you got it saved, To tell you the truth, that was about as close of a car that my mom had that I have seen in a very long time, her interior however was white.

Hope you can keep us posted as to how that car comes along, there is a growing passion for these old birds....
