You've come to the right place because we know where most of the cars that are for sale can be found, but we'll need a little more information.

- Are you looking for one that is fully restored?
- Are restomods acceptable or do you want to stay stock?
- What color(s)
- Which options are necessary, which ones are nice-to-have, and which ones don't matter?
Engine Size - 200-6cyl, 289, 302, 390, 428
Transmission - 3-speed, 4-speed, Automatic
Air Conditioning
Power Steering
Power Disc Brakes
Deluxe Interior
Upper Console
Lower Console
Other?

I realize that's a lot of questions but it will help us lead you in the right direction.

My Garage
The BEST one for sale would be Ruppstang's HCS listed on this site. Marty's expertise and the car's gold standard @ MCA judging makes it the absolute best IMHO. Expensive, but primo.
