What classic US car could i get on a budget from 0 to 12000$?
I`m not super picky,it does not have to be matching numbers,the paint does not have to be shiny etc.
Here are my check list.
*No rust and bondo,except i could tolerate surface rust and burned paint. I`d prefer it to have everything
as for original chrome/alu trim,bumpers etc. No fiberglass rubbish if it`s not original.
*The interiour does not have to be 100%,cracked dash or bad carpet,bad weather strips is okay as long
as it is original,no aftermarked seats,steering wheel or fluffy carpets and huge stereo.
*Everything electrical should be working and hopefully original,lights,heater,wipers,etc.
*No compormise are tolerated on safety as with brakes.
*The car should run strong and shift smooth,no smokey exhaust or nasty oil leaks.
*I would prefer a car that is used and driven regular. No "I was going to restore it but instead i let it rot
for 50 years instead of selling it to someone who wanted it up and running"
*V8 engine only. Manual or auto does not matter.
*Would prefer power steering and brakes,but not an demand if i like the rest.
