Decent looking car. The shackles bring back memories of my 1st '67 coupe. Is it me or are the rocker moldings upside down? '67 Deluxe gauge cluster also.

Could be a fun project.

That never ceases to amaze me. The more common error is to switch sides.

I do like that deep blue. I wonder what engine it has. The stance looks a little high, and that interior would have to go. Maybe some more info needed on that accident and rust.

How do you guys think it compares to this one here?

This car has been posted on Craigslist a few times. I'm pretty sure it's J149602
I saw a lot of red flags from the previous ads. Here are my notes.

Car was originally Lime Gold, now painted blue with black stripes, for sale on eBay 10/8/16. Wrong hood, Grille, Fog Lights. Scripts don't line up. Terrible paint job. For sale by California Auto Museum in Sacramento. 2-11-17 For sale on Hemmings for $27,000

Here (hopefully) is a link to photos from previous ads.

Here is the Marti Report.

Here are photos of the issues I noticed.
If you zoom in on the reflector in the photo of the inside of the trunk you'll see where it was welded in, and it looks like lights were added.
