Cool 1968 High Country

Location: Victoria, Texas
Price: $15,000 obo

So I'm looking at Facebook Marketplace and this pops up:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...83067%7D%22%7D

In my opinion $15,000 is way too much considering what all needs to be done to it. It does have a Marti report.

Well the price has came down it started at 20k. The car IMO is a 6k car. I believe he has the motor and trans for it. But itís going to need a lot of love in metal work.

Cool

Having taken on a restoration project similar to this one a couple of years ago you would be looking at a $40,000 project unless you can do most of the work yourself. IMO the car isn't worth more than $4,000 especially with all of the rust. The front floors are gone which usually means the torque boxes are gone as well. No telling what other areas need to be replaced or repaired.

Cheers!

IMHO, $6K is too much. you would really have to love it. Unfortunately, I see a ton of money to restore it. Sad they let it go so long.
