Like I'm Sayin'...
Even the most beat-up ghetto looking SoCal car generally makes a GREAT restoration canidate for the very reasons Blue has revealed in this post!
That car would have sold in SoCal for $1500+ just because it's a Dime 2-Dr and there are freaks a-million out here for those cars.
I got the boy's wagon locally incomplete for $400 (Christmas Present), but had to go to West Texas to get my 69 2-Dr Coupe. Both are amazingly rust free for the age and original content!
The 66 Bus I got from DMS here has 1000% better rockers and undercarrige than my more complete 62 that spent years in Michigan. Matter of fact, I realized the wonders of no-salt, low humidity roads when taking apart VW engines in the junkyard after moving out here. Those pan-head screws were nothing more than rusty rivet-looking things on all my East-Coast/MidEast Engines!!!
And I haven't had a rusted-out gas tank here yet!
Definately keep us posted. I'm showing The Boy this post for 'inspiration'!
