What is going on with those left headlight bulbs. To me, it looks like there must have been an accident to the left front, and they used the wrong headlamp buckets when the repair was done. Other than that I don't see any evidence of a front end collision, although it does warrant a closer examination to be certain. The hood lip molding being cracked is common.

defiantly worth the low side. expect to get around 10,000 in getting it up to show condition. just getting it running again is always a mystery. things like parts laying on the body that set of light with the light cups swapped all show it owned by people that had no idea how to repair one. or correct mistakes made. now that might not be the current owner, but there is some reason that it has not been improved on when the have had it. at best a old car is a money pit. so you do want to get the best you can for the money first. those thousand dollar cars can cost you a lot. especially if your unable to do your own repairs. so that being said Dan showed you a couple. here is one you can get for 8 grand that you can get in start and drive. sitting out in front of my house under a cover.

Words of advice, do it right the first time and spend the money up front. You'll be much happier with it afterwards.

Just in case you missed it, more pictures here: https://imgur.com/a/ikrp5hK

I'm set on a 1968 traditional landau.
The 472 is an engine I am familiar with, it was in my 1970 Superior Crown Royale 3-way Landaulet.
I also have a 1968 Superior Landau Combo parts car and a 1968 MM Combo parts car.

If you can do most of the mechanical work and or body work I would say go for it , If not most are a money pit from hell. Does it run , does the table work etc etc. Can I ask what they are asking for it? Thanks

My last mechanic flaked on a trade deal, but I have another lined up.
The car does run and drive. It is unknown if the table works. Everything looks like it's there. (minus the original bench seat and a few minor pieces like door armrest)
They are asking $6,500 which is, of course, way overpriced.

Yup! That's crazy!

Pretty nasty "whisky ding" on the driver's side.

Without more details I would say 2500 -3500.

Thanks for all the input!

I can see from the pictures (https://imgur.com/a/ikrp5hK) that the heater core hoses are cut and part of the vacuum system may be missing.

Probably going to offer $3,000 as see where we go from there.

Thanks again,
Anthony
