    Thumbs up WTB: Classic car

     



    Hi everyone,

    Looking for a driver quality vehicle. Prefer something from the list below with the Chevelle being number one on it. I might consider some other muscle car or something. Not looking for a rust bucket or an expensive show car. looking for a driver quality car that is roadworthy. Must be a V8. No three on the tree. 2 doors only.


    I don't care about numbers matching or anything like that as it will be my resto mod project so the more stuff that's already done, the better!


    68-72 Buick Skylark/Gran Sport
    69-72 Pontiac Tempest/GTO
    67-70 Chevelle/Malibu
    68-72 Cutlass
    68-72 Pontiac Lemans
    61-67 Chevy Impala

    Have you checked out Bring A Trailer on-line - https://bringatrailer.com/ There's a '67 Buick GS 400 Convert there now but it's going pretty high. That said, your list doesn't have anything that's gonna be cheap.

    Another option is Hemmings - https://www.hemmings.com/

    Instead of being part of the problem, be part of a successful solution.

    So Bill, are you keeping your "elsewhere spots" a secret?
    I'd forgotten about a place jb/johnboy told me about along Rt 66 in Illinois. I believe it was Country Classics in Staunton - https://countryclassiccars.com/home/ Maybe he'll see this and confirm or correct my memory.

    No secret, I've posted at least two or three of the V8 conversions, or custom paint jobs here over the years

    Yup.
    That's the place we visited/told you about.
    We stayed there so long that She Who Must Be Obeyed told me She'd drive away and leave me there.

    (Would've been fine by me. I would've been forced to buy myself some new wheels then.)
