70 Chevelle for yard art or scrapping out

I tried to convince Tina this would look good in the back part of our yard near Jr.'s Garage, but she isn't seeing it.  Lol

I worked with the seller since he's just up the road in Isanti, and got him down to $700, but that's as low as I got him with my starting offer of $400, so I'm guessing $600 would take it. 

If nothing else, I was going to cut off the front foot of the car for wall art and sell the rest for scrap.




Gonna let go of this wonderful idea at this point.  Happy wife...happy life!

Yeah, he started at about $1500 a few months ago. I drove past it when my son moved out of Isanti and I don't know what the guy is smoking, but even the parts he says are good are bent...rolleyes

You're quite generous to offer $400. I'm in the MAYBE $200 area to cut the front off, but you'd still have to pull it out straight before you did that.

 It MAY be possible the fame isn't rusted and could be salvaged and sold, but that's about the only thing I can think of to "save" on it.

Sorry, just not feeling it.

I have a lot of "distractions" and clutter.

Have been watching that one, Looks like you could fill one banker box with usable stuff, aaaand spend a day doing it.

All I see is torn clothes, bloody body parts, and some wrecked tools.

My wife has Dementia, she doesn't care what I buy.

Mitch, front frame rotted at both torque boxes, not much holding that thing together

More ambition than brains,

If you have more than 5 of anything, best to stop counting!
