Excellent description in the eBay ad Mack, but surely she's worth taking some decent photos of?

Think, If you were a potential buyer, what would you want to see in the ad - surely the whole car for starters (without cover) and engine that doesn't need wd40 Not to mention interior condition.

Just my 2c. Good luck!

I have to agree with Deano.

Or why not pay someone $50-100 to take some nice shots ?

Worth it in the long run.

Cheers,
Frank.

Agreed, close it up, give it a good wash and take some decent photos of it.

Guys guys I did even better, I made a full video tour of it. I will be back in the game again soon though, for now though I can stay active on the forum as I own an srt8 Chrysler 300c and in my book that counts as US muscle. Thanks again guys

I really did want to take nice pictures but I dont own a good camera at the moment so thats why i made a closeup tour video.

67 Cougar is cool & something a bit different.

Lots of cool cars out there ... Olds, Buicks etc. ... Something a bit different.

Cheers,
Frank.

If you need advice on what car to "get into", chances are once you have it, it'll be for sale within a couple months - just like your Impala.

Not trying to be a douche, just something to ponder.

There's nothing wrong with that Impala, and any other car you buy will be no different - unless you come across a heap of money to buy something you don't need to do anything to.

My advice - if you feel like hearing any - just do the absolute necessities to get it registered. Once it's registered and you can actually drive it around, you may change your tune. If not, you'll get more money for a car someone can drive home rather than trailer. Plenty of people would prefer something they can jump into and drive straight away and fix as they go, rather than dive into some huge nut & bolt resto that could easily take a decade and $50,000 before they even get to take it for a cruise.

Plenty of folks buy a car with the plans of restoring it only to give up once they realise how daunting a task it is, so they off-load it before putting in any real effort. Problem is, in a lot of cases, the car doesn't need restoring. Just like your Impala. Would it look great with a new paint job? Sure. Does it need one? No. Way too many people put so much emphasis on having a bright shiny newly restored toy that they can show-off and say "look at me", they fail to notice the awesome car that have sitting in front of them. Something to be driven and enjoyed. It's a 68 Impala Fastback - It'll still be more awesome than 99.7% of the cars you pass on the road - regardless of its condition.

Get it registered and drive it. You'll love it.

Some good points there Russ.

I went and looked at a bel air for sale not to long ago the guy got it 2 yrs ago this thing still was in bits and half primed.

Even he said the above to me do whatever to get it on the road and drive it otherwise you'll end up like me a car worth nothing and in bits.


I should of done that for mine quick fix and drive. I'd have a wicked smile 24/7! I'm getting close though!

No harm no foul russ, good advice. I agree alot of people buy projects and don't finish them, myself included. I admit I logistically did not think this out. I saw it and wanted it and bought it without even thinking. Still want to do it but am moving houses so it has to be sold. Next time I do intend to save myself the trouble and just buy fully restored aswell, I think $40k could land me a nice Imp or cougar. As for the AMC gremlin I heard tales of them being hit from the rear and blowing up but I do think they are cool.

I agree with Russ, my first love was a 65 impala coupe, it wasn't pretty when I bought it, but it was a great cruiser and I had alot of laughs in it.
But 40K does go along way at the moment, there's lots to choose from in that market.
And I think you maybe thinking of the Ford Pinto with the gas tank thing

Ah yeh, thats it, the Pinto. Yes I have been saving away for awhile. I just love classics and when I see something nice i can't control myself and my caution goes to the wind lol.
