You got her out of the yard and cleaned up! Looks a lot better now compared to sitting in the yard covered in pine needles. Chrome still looks good.

361 engine.
I wanted to use this hood on my car, because it was so much nicer. This car is from Texas. Not much rust on it at all.
No rust on the bottom edge of the hood nor the trunk lid. The bottom of the doors are all nice. For heavens sake, the
rocker panels are still there. The bumpers will polish up nicely, and no major dents. You will have to replate the tail light
housings, but they are good for a driver. The eyebrows are the same way.

Nice one - note also the remote rearview mirror and the MirrorMatic.
Is the emergency brake warning light original as well?

The early AutoPilot is very rare since the control is in the steering wheel column - would be worth $500 to 1000, at least here in Sweden.

I'd guess that the complete AC is roundabout the same.

MirrorMatic $100 to 300

I'd guess that the complete AC is roundabout the same.

MirrorMatic $100 to 300



I have seen a complete A/C system sell for $1800.
So let's break it down. A/C 1800, Auto Pilot 800, Mirrormatic 200, Swivel seats 500, Bumpers 500 each, Fenders 150 each,
Remote drivers mirror 100, Hood 100, trunk lid 100, engine, gauges, etc.
So why would anybody think that this car is not worth it?

Because not everyone has space to store a parts car.

Where I live, you need to register all visible cars on your property.

They may need some parts and not others.

Then there's the matter of hauling the car from where you live to where they live.

I recommend parting the car out if you need the space.

Okay. Let's try $3,700.
If it does not sell at this price, then I guess I will just put it back under that pine tree.
Have a good day.
G'day mate.

Germans love 4 doors. They pay unbelievable prices for them, thinking they got a good deal, since they got "more" for their money. Really, over the years I got into several arguments with people insisting 4 doors are more valuable, since they have 4 doors and not just 2.
