WTB: Splitty Project

Post by Dual Port »

I could use another project to keep me busy during the winter, preferably '64-67.

Thanks,

This would be cool if the price doesn't go too high.

Yes, that's a possibility but still seems overpriced. It's a project and going to need everything, and you'll be right at the edge of "upside down" when you're done with it. It actually seems like completed bus prices are softening (coming down a bit) and project prices are going up. 11K seems too steep, I did text him and we'll see how firm he is. My guess is that it might already be sold- 1700 views of the ad already.

Edit: I spoke with him, there's pinholes in a couple of spots in the roof, the parcel tray is rotted and the RF seat pedestal is rotted badly. He's firm at 11K and has an Ohio title in his name but has not checked the VIN stamp to make sure it matches. He has people in line to buy it including a guy from Denver who's flying in with first dibs. Not looking like it's going to happen for me. It sounds like the rust is at least as bad as my other busses if not worse.
