The guy should sell it as a roller without the motor and trans, probably get more for it!

POP has said before,,,am trying to keep my ford opinion under control....that just proves that one man's brain fade can ruin a great car,,,,,,the sad part is,,when he got thru building it,,,he stood back and felt proud of his self for what he'd built....like RON WHITE says... YOU CAN'T FIX STUPID !!…..or sell it at a profit....who wants it ???

I agree on the engine and figured somebody would notice. I am hoping that the wrong brand engine is what is bringing the price down so low.

Low? 9000$? interior has been gutted,no door panels ,backseat package tray or headliner,original dash bezel gone, shock towers gone,gas tank gone, rusty quarters...which means there's no telling what else is covered up with the paintjob. rollbar looks tacked in the trunk. not knowing who built the front end I'd be leery of going fast in it. open diff on a too wide of a rearend. this car is made to look like an old racecar. it would take a ton of money to bring it back close to original, a sedan ,which doesn't have the resale value as a hardtop,though they do make better racecars. even cyclones have a limited group of people who want them compared to belly button cars so this car has a very limited market. being a gasser limits it even more. & that motor & trans is just in the way, & more work to put motor & trans mounts in to bolt a good combo in its place.

It'll sell, one born everyday. But, maybe the new owner will end up here for some guidance.
