Franz wrote:I posted some pictures of this car a month or two ago. We got word yesterday that it may be for sale. 1958 convertible one owner-family car. The colorway and rarity make it a 10 in my book.

Very original, with a not so well done re-paint. Some rust bubbling in a few spots. No major damage or repairs. With a full resto it could be a cream puff type car....Or leave it alone and enjoy it as a driver. I'm not sure what the seller is going to ask yet. I'd expect it to be in the $25-$30k area.

$35 maybe.

Perfect ghias of this variety are in the $80k area. This one needs a full resto to be there.

The Hagerty guide lists $30k for condition 2.

Pat and I have been tinkering on a ton of parkway projects.

Baird's 58 convertible for a spark plug cleaning, brake adjust, and some other smalls.

BBOE for new heads, P&L kit, king pins, and link pins.

New owners 73 with fatigued torsion bars. It looks decent here becaus it has cheap coil-over spring shock to compensate. I'm going to install new 26mm torsion bars, and original type shocks. Parts on order.

This is by far my favorite thread. Real life cars that people use. That orange bug above looks just like my 77 I drove in high school and I loved that car!
