Here is the description:

1973 Gran Torino fastback. 460 auto.  Been sitting for 20 plus yrs. time for someone else to enjoy it. Ran last time I tried.  Car is located near California Missouri $3500

Car is very solid for the age. Has little rust. Has 88 thunderbird front seats missing kick panels sorry forgot to get the vin number. The slotted mag wheels on the front do not go with it and the ss cragars on the back will not hold air so you will need some tires to drag it out. 

I’ll let it sit for anything less than the 3500 dollar asking price.  If your rude or ask stupid questions. Like constantly more pics even though they have been posted. I’ll just block you. 


Here are some more pics:

That could be trouble, with rust. The ground there is much higher than it was, likely a flood raised the ground level by several inches. So how high was the water, and how long did it take to recede. Water damage from flooding can be minor like mold in rugs, but the far downside is much worse. I'd pass without a lot more information about the flooding and condition.

Thanks for posting the description GTS😁 i would pass based on the owners crappy attitude😬. Don't think he is going to be very much help providing further info and he probably will stand port arms with a sawed off scatter gun while you look it over😠

I would be willing to bet that car was completely submerged.
Heavy debris big bits on the armrests, on the seats, in the trunk. Engine looks like it got a mud bath.

The steering wheel has a full coverage of dirt on it, that's what made me think flood. It could be an open garage with lots of wind blowing in it over many years, but what's likely.
