Re: Trading Time?

Some of these wrecking yard guys have a skewed view of value. There is a yard out by me that has a 66ish plymouth satellite that is rusted out and half buried in the dirt. His asking price..........35k It's faded yellow, but not gold plated

Re: Trading Time?

LOL. Thats funny those mopars hold their value. With the 57 I think the wrecking yard guy is trying to get his pound of flesh. I need to get him to give me the number of the owner.

Re: Trading Time?

$450 is about 1500 too much. I think that $3K should grab that.

Even a Barret Jackson 57 Chero wouldn't bring more than about $35K, and you got at LEAST that much work to do to make it a $20K car....

Explain that to the old goon.

Re: Trading Time?

I had the same thought as FE.... 3k is about the tops, even though it is relatively rare.(not many seen anymore). What is the engine/trans combo? 292?

Ive always said the 57 fords were much better looking than the 57 chebby, but thats just me. Wish I had held on to mine i had so many years ago ( gave 5 bux for that car due to the bypass hose and a P/O'ed owner) LMAO!!! it was a 292 short block with 312 t-bird top end/ 3speed manual that had been converted to floor shift.... was a great runner...

Cheap, Fast, Reliable... Pick 2...

'61 Fairlane 500 292 2v Cruise-o-Matic also needing tlc

Supposed to have the origial engine and trans at the owners house(rebuilt and ready to go). I think he said it was 292 and automatic. We will have to see about that. Also supposed to have windshield, new interior parts and tail lights. Seeing is beliving.
