I emailed the seller and he said any bid over $16,000 takes it. A good deal, but I've made my mind up to do my C code, which will end up costing at least twice as much, but I'll have what I want. I never sell anything, anyways.
I purchased this car today, after the seller agreed to remove the 15" styled steel wheels and raised white letter tires which he had added, and replace them with the original 14" wheels, whitewall Michelins and XR-7 wheel covers which were on the car when he purchased it from the family of the original owner a few months ago.
It really looks naked without its factory pinstripes. My first car was a Nordic Blue '68 standard coupe, which had white pinstripes. Does anyone know what color pinstripes would have been on this car originally?
That car looks real sweet! Specially if you were even close to his price! Not sure if it would have had white or black stripes? I like that color though. Curious though. The sticker on the driver side shock tower, shouldn't that be on the passenger side?
Oh, nice!! I've never noticed them before but from zooming in really close on pics now I can see them. Funny, I always thought that was just light reflecting off the ridge.
What this tells me, aside from reminding me I still don't know jack, is that I really need to see some proper Cougars up close in person. I just saw one drive past on the street here in Chicago a couple days ago and was shocked beyond belief. We don't really have a ton, I don't think.
The seller offered the car twice on eBay, but both times he used a high minimum bid (first $17K then $16K) rather than use a reserve price. There were no bids either time. I paid $14K for the car, and he agreed to deliver the car to me. It will live at my home in Palm Springs, CA.
