Default 64 cad hi top in california.

Has anyone seen this car on CL. he is asking 3500 for it and I am wondering about other peoples thoughts on this car. I received alot of pics from him and the only thing that looks like it is missing is the main beacon lense.

I have never seen a light setup like this before, ful-vues on thr rear and a different type on the front. Was this a rare or common setup? Sorry dont know what the front ones are, Im a hearse guy not ambulance guy.

they are Guardian lights in the front. but MM like the rest would do anything you asked. I'm guessing that this service wanted to make the steady burn out of them and save them from adding a light to the car. the flashers in the rear and the beacon in front would be all the winkers you would need. me I would have someone drop in and look at this car a person looking can see what the pictures can't. if you can't make the trip out your self then it's worth paying some one else to do it for you. there is a reason this car has been passed over. it may be only because it not what someone was looking for. but the money is not bad if the car has all the hard to get trim still in place and the car is derivable and of course if it's the one your willing to sink money into

I'll be passing through the Bakersfield area in the middle of this week. If someone is SERIOUSLY interested in this car, I don't mind going out of my way to have a look at it for you. I will be driving a 33' RV, and prefer not to be driving up and down residential streets in an unknown area and trying to find a place to park. My co-pilot is good company, but is not very good at reading street signs.

Let me know before noon on Tuesday, as that's when I'll be leaving Phoenix, and I won't have internet access during the trip.
