Do you realize that the car is located in New Bedford Massachusetts?

Yes, I do realize that. Its way farther than I want to look, so distance is the only problem for me. I'm still hoping for something nice to pop up closer.

I will admit though, patience is not my strong suit

Over the weekend I found a 1975 Miller-Meteor local in Oklahoma City. Going to drive down and look at it on Dec 9th and see if everything checks out. But so far its sounding very nice.

Im told there is no rust on the body or under and it drives great. Only problems are that there are a few dents (easily fixed) and the gas gauge doesnt work (also easily fixed). Interestingly the funeral home that owned it before had the Vinyl top removed and had it replaced with a rhino liner (like truck bed spray) but it was done professionally and actually looks like vinyl.

I would expect that would possibly help preserve the top against rust or damage so as long as it doesnt LOOK weird or ghetto I think thats a plus.

Looking forward to heading out there, its a nice looking car. I will be sure to post pictures.

This is being sold by the founder of a local hearse club, so the guy has some credibility.

The Rhino Liner roof is unfortunate. I would NEVER do that to a coach. They should have just sanded and painted the roof.

Here is what I am going to look at next Saturday:

https://oklahomacity.craigslist.org/...400805670.html

I asked him about the top and he told me it was a rhino guard thing. For a spray bed liner it looks very nice. I am looking forward to seeing it close up. I've seen a few hearses out there with bedliner on the top and the ones I have seen looked absolutely horrible, so I was surprised when he said it was rhino

Did he happen to mention why he is selling it "bill of sale only"? Isn't Oklahoma a title state?

Yeah, said he does not have a title for it. He told me that I will need to file a Title 42 and that they are not hard to do, they just take effort and time. He works two jobs and just doesnt have time to pursue the title.

I've been researching Title 42 and I dont think there will be any problem. I'm actually going to try to have a title service take care of this for me instead. It takes 10-12 weeks to get the new clean title but you are able to drive the car legally 30 days from the date of your bill of sale. So after that 30 days I will drive it around the block every weekend to keep its blood flowing until I get that title.

From what I understand Title 42 is more or less like filing for a divorce without the other party. You post a newspaper ad for x amount of time asking for the owner to come forward. Then when no one comes forward with the title then the court assigned a new clean title.

I would give him deposit to hold and when HE gets the title give him the rest.

I totally agree with Dan. Something not right here. This isn't exactly a ratty old car that was pulled out of a field or barn. This isn't the '65-'68 that you were looking for anyway.
