Due to unfortunate circumstances I am forced to sell this car which I have owned for less than 3 weeks.I'll be honest, I got stung here. This car was sold to me as solid, and after some weeks of exploratory work I have discovered that it is in fact far from it. Additionally, unexpected financial resposiblities cropped up and I simply do not have the time, money or remaining sanity to tackle this project.I'm told the previous owner was also had when they bought the car, and from the looks of things they were had by whoever did the repair work. This cars trail of misrepresentation (both intentional and accidental) hopefully ends with me. I need it out of my hands ASAP, and to cut my losses. I hope it can find a home with somebody who is able to rescue it, but if you want to part it out, thats up to you.Open to offers. Come view the car. Bring a trailer and space to carry extra bits. Message for more pictures and contact details.289 V83 speed manualCoupe/notchback body1965 productionMade in Dearborn, MichiganOriginal color Caspian BlueVIN matches current specImported sometime early this year or late last yearV5 presentThe good:Engine starts and runs, sounds healthyFitted with tubular headersSeems to select all gearsSlot mag wheelsDoors open and close easily indicating the body is not tweakedComes with a few boxes of removed and spare parts. Most parts seen missing from the car are present.All glass in good shapeThe Bad:Floor pans have been replaced, and while the welds are good, they are not correctly fitted or plug welded to the front frame rails. In places there is a gap as big as an inch between where the floor should be and where it is. Not safe to drive in this state.Large rust holes in the tops of the front frame rails, under the upper control armsSmall rust holes in metalwork ahead of shock towers and battery trayBattery tray is not welded inBolt holes for front bumper brackets have plates welded over themEngine bay and parts of the underside coated in pickup bed liner, could be concealing more problemsSeat platforms missingPatches in front of rear arches improperly attached to rockersWindscreen not securedSome flash-rusted bare metal on welds that were never paintedSome spots of filler on the roof and bonnetRear leaf shackles are not attached to the frameOil leaks from distributor neck, gearbox output and possibly rear main oil sealLoose and missing hardware all over - engine mount nuts missing, loose bolts on the engine accesories etcExhaust leaksNo coolant so unsure of cooling system integrityUnsure of fuel tank conditionEngine ground strap replaced with one thats far too thin going to the starter motorBrakes non finctional (service brake and parking brake)Brake master cylinder cap stuckClutch return spring broken, clutch will not disengageGiven the state of the floor/frame situation, I doubt some of the other repairs. These have been done to the rear frame rails, boot floor, lower rear quarters and scuttle
