I just bought and sold the wagon version of this car. I was surprized how popular they are! They share a lot of parts with the Falcons from that year/era. They're nice affordable cars.

Very nice Doc. I would love to find one of those in my area one day. Drop a warmed over 289 and 4 speed and that thing would be sweet.

Looks very nice. Body, the grill, side trim, interior and bumpers looks all there and pretty clean. Nice find. There's a black/red one in town here sitting in a driveway by my Dads house. Cool cars.

Looks like a 5 gallon bucket of win from my house.
Buy it. Leave it looking mangy and get it tip top mechanically. Then drive it!

Put a 331 Stroker with the 4 spd and have a little sleeper monster. The car looks pretty solid and straight.

and he had been out in the sun WAY too long

I have a 1960 Comet - got it for my daughter to use to get to school and back and around the area when she was in high school (She named it Fonzie). It's a fun little car.
She had that at the Champoeg park show last year, didn't she?
