In such good shape I donot know what to do with it, keep or sale.Yes it is in very good shape . 48 years old and 48,000 miles. Old woman who had it died, her son got it out of the garage and let it set in the sun for a while the dummy but only discolored top and plastic seat covers are turning bad. Front seat needs attention but body looks new even under the car everywhere. I will go get it next week .

The reason he is selling is open heart surgery and everyday above ground is good he said. Has too many projects to ever finish and he is gona use money to finish a nice mustang. He said he didnot want to leave this world and all his projects for his wife to worry about selling . He bought this to build for he had a 64 comet when he was young and showed me a pic of his that was red.

Just got to be at the right place at the right time. And with the $$$$ to get it.
Probably. 35 years ago I had to sell every car and 427 I had collected for I needed the money , story of my life. 30 years later I decided not getting any younger and went back to doing what I enjoyed. Started with alittle money and started buying any ford parts and reselling. Money I used I put back into parts. After 5 years I collected alot but mostly one tends to wish to keep everything and to progress cannot fall in love with nothing, so I resell it. Very hard to watch things keepable go out the driveway even though ya got the money in hand. Money does not mean everything even though I keep myself needing it all the time. My trouble is wanting to keep stuff like this comet. DAG I hate to let it go after I finish it but without selling cannot look other things. It sucks to need money all the time and having to sell after a great find. Is a great hobby and money maker, fun as well but I hate the selling watching stuff leave.
