    Craigslist Finds

    For some reason I like this car, a lot.

    https://wausau.craigslist.org/cto/5669260774.html

    This would be a thumbs-up to me.

    My dad had a '90 Crown Vic he bought new in 1989...still had it in 2009 when he passed. Well, sort of...he got in a bad wreck a few year before he passed and the body shop had a very similar car that had a blown motor. They swapped his drivetrain and interior into the other shell, polished it up a bit, and he kept on driving it.

    I wound up selling it to a friend of his who was in a bad way for MUCH less than it was worth.

    A friend's mom had that exact car. The 302 is not that powerful, but it makes for a very quiet, luxurious ride. Nice cars. Guy is a bit high on price though.

    I don't think that will be winning any trophies.

    No I don't think that would be winning anything either, I just really like it. I wouldn't know if it were honestly over priced. I know I wouldn't pay that for it, but I still like it. A lot.

    If we don't already I think we should have a thread for craigslist craziness. Either good stuff, bad stuff, awesome stuff WTF stuff from all over the country.

    Not a huge fan but I like the older caprices pre soap bar generation. Late 70's - early 80's.


    Gold or maroon with wire hub caps and a 305. That would be nice.

    I was actually referring to the 'trophy truck' in bad scar's video.

    John, can I hire you to finish this? Lol

    I don't even know how honestly feasible it is.

    Yeah its feasible. That guy references the SN65 swap, aka 65-66 car on a terminator, which has a ton of tech info available on it because its been done several times.

    I've never seen it done on a '68 but the dimensions are close so I'm sure its a similar deal.

    They're both unit body cars with similar dimensions so its a case of massaging to get the dimensions lined up and you weld the damn thing together.

    About 10 years ago this guy was the first to do it with a terminator so he's kinda a celebrity in the Mustang world.

    http://www.sn65.com/Custom%20Mustang%20For%20Sale.htm

    On that page is a link to a powerpoint that will give you an idea of whats involved. Its an enormous project, I'd guess 2x or 3x as difficult as a regular restoration. I don't think anyone who has kids or a life should take something like that on. That being said, a lot of the hard work has been done on that one, I would totally do it.

    It's feasible, and it's been done before. It's a very involved project, but not as hard/complicated as one might think..The price seems pretty good here, too, if the guy hasn't screwed something up along the way and trying to unload it for that reason. I could finish it easily otherwise.
    Just wondering why he would go thru all that trouble without a fastback, but several aftermarket mustang vendors have fastback conversion kits.

    64-66 is a bit more complicated because they were narrower than the 67-70.
