Barn find

Post by mudmachine22 » Fri Dec 14, 2018 7:20 pm

Seen this today in a older guys barn/shop today. Said it's a 78, original owner, has a straight 6, with only 40k something orginal miles. And the top has never been removed. Dont know when it last ran. Says he is willing to sell for the right money, talks like he wants around 30k for it.


Trying to post a few pics but can't seam to get them loaded.

Yeah defiantly high for me especially not knowing if it runs and all. He talked like he's gonna get it out and get it running again put new tires on it and list it on eBay, but to be honest just the feel I got from him he won't ever do it and it will be there for a lot longer. But I could be wrong.

It would be worth 30k with some work, but not in that shape. Nice find!

I love those things but DAMN I can't see 30k.
I can't see 50K for a really nice one either.
