The $4500 is beautiful except for the burgundy piping.  The$7500 one is an ugly color.

Funny thing aboot 67 & 68 speedos & gauges, interesting how they often suffer from surface rust.  Don't notice that so much with other years.

And their glove box doors warp.

I was just about to type that.  I've never seen an instrument panel look so crappy before on any other car that was in basically good shape.  Weird.

111k, is believable. I'm sure if it were only 11k, the car wouldn't be ratted out the way it is.

I will never have or drive a 69/70 Hate,Hate the dash,gas gauge and steering also those seats over your head.67 of course 429 woes.The dash on the 67's rust from air conditioning condensation.Hence the plastic vents on 68'.It is a 68 coupe or a 68 eldo.I am ok with a 71 or 72 coupe but nothing else,nothing!

That's what I like about the 69/70 cars. Those huge seats. You can sit and drive for hours and never have a sore back or neck. And that virtical floating gas gauge on the 69 is the coolest. Like a Toro Eldorado Brougham barrel speedo.

Guys,went into work Late today as the kid went nissan and I was back all over it.There is over 500 photos of the whole job.Welded metal only behind the rear wheels.No cruise,tilt or power vents,Maybe it is a Calais?It is nice enough for me to drive to work that is for sure.JJ Best is the greatest.I have to give $750 down and $143 a month for 60 months.Most would think it is crazy.I think I may have a tough time as being a 67-70 Eldo driver since 79.I could be hitting curbs!I may spend money on it and try to resell!Look at the pictures again and tell me what you really think.

I think it looks like a decent car overall. 

The way I see it for 10K or less on any decent car you can't lose.   If you enjoy it who cares if its had work done?  Hopefully its done right.  Any rust on the frame?  Why did all those panels have to be replaced?

If you buy it, please get rid of that horrible steering wheel and those idiotic, fuzzy dice.  Fuzzy dice are for numb nut trailer queen dopes.

Oh ya, and ditch the Elvis plate, too.  If you don't do these things I'm going to tell Fins to delete your Misfit account.

I'll give you a little more time to buy proper steel wheels and hubcaps.
