I received an email from him with some pictures. The car has been sitting 2 - 3 years. I will be glad to forward those pictures if you email me at [email protected]

It is not a bad looking red and silver charger with a sunroof. Interior looks to need a professional cleaning, but everything appears to be intact. It would be a shame to have this car stripped and junked when it needs so very little work to be back on the street romping and rolling.

I just added them in to a photobucket account:

Lets find a buyer for this car.

These are all the pictures he has sent to me. His email address is in the 1st post. He has it listed on the Harrisburg, PA CraigsList also.

You can tell him I posted the pictures here, and if he wants me to post more, to just email me.

I would love to have this car to modify and make it a real fast fun car, but I just tied up my money in another project.

You are not too far from him either, I believe he is somewhere in the Reading area.

His email to me stated he was looking to get $500.00 for it, as he knew he could strip and get that much for it from the junk yard and selling parts.

His time frame is vague. He wants it gone by the time he is ready to move.

He said it needed tires, headgasket, and "other things".
"other things" wouldn't be floorpans and framerails, would they?
Did he mention it's condition when you talked to him?
The pictures don't tell the tale:(

I asked about the floor pans. He did not know what their condition was.

Here is his email address so you can inquire of him directly:

[email protected]

From my point of view, looking at the pictures, this looks like an easy to get on the road driver. You can then decide how much of a restoration you wish to chase after that.

"He didn't know" about the floorpans. Yeah, right. He knows.

And I'm sure there's a reason for no engine photo, WHO takes photos of a car and doesn't show the engine in at least one shot?

Valid points. I wouldn't make a final deal until I personally viewed the car. If this were just an O24 or a TC3/Turismo/Duster, I don't think I would show this much interest in the car. But this being a Shelby Charger, turbo car, these pictures justify his asking price. If the entire underneath were completely rotten, or the engine is missing, then you have a point. The car would be worth less. But how much lower can you go before he decides it is better to strip the car of its good pieces and cart the hulk to the metal processors?

Honestly, I am close to finding a way to budget this purchase and the trip to get it. But I am shy about an in-depth project. The best buyer for this car is a person that lives close enough to go look at it before committing to a purchase. Someone in eastern PA region within an hour or so drive. Even if gas prices were at what they were a year ago, I am as far away in PA as you can get from this car. My time budget makes two trips for this purchase impractical, unless I had the strong desire for an L body project.

Another point for you PA lookers is the PA state inspection. I asked him when it last was stickered. He was not sure exactly but said it was in the last 2 -3 years. So read 3-4 years from sticker expiration. Most inspection shops in PA will not let a car pass with rotted floors, so and rust problems in the pans will be more apt to be from sitting in the grass than from road salt. Do they use road salt in that section of PA? I know it is very prevalent here in NW PA.

I have the exact same car sitting in my garage rust-free:)

I don't need another project either, but if it were rust-free I would figure out a way to save it... I used to live in SE Delco PA and they used cinders on the fresh snow when I lived there - rust was a non-issue for me back then:D

I will have an extra "good" motor in a while. Could you imagine waking up and wondering: "which red 85 should I drive today? The T-II or the T-III?

I could:thumb:
