I'm sorry if this belongs to someone here but I just don't see why on earth the price is this high on this car? Has to be a shill bidder or others see somethin i sure don't.

maybe you need to look again?

40k miles on a 351M rebuild, rattle can black over a lifetime of Warren MI rust ...

started at $100 now $7k & reserve not met

could be Torino script on the 1/4, where did that come from?

MURDER TORINO,  yep the owner murdered it pretty good. If I was looking at selling a vehicle, I would at the very least try to make it look as good as I could, this person needs a vacuum cleaner(maybe he can buy one with the $7K-Home Depot is running a sale on Rigids right now). The silver lining is that if this Torino brings "good" money in that condition, it must mean a lot of our rides could be potential gold mines Shocked.

Yeah, It's a Hybrid...It burns gas and tires.

No matter how good she looks, somebody, somewhere, is tired of her sh*t.

Beauty is skin deep, ugliness goes clear to the bone.

Lots of body rot in fenders and quarters.
351M and 4.10 rear... that's gonna get the RPMs up.
Ad doesn't mention new 1-piece valves.
I'm wondering about a big kerboom coming up.
Pushrods protruding from valve covers...

Flex Seal. It needs Flex Seal. Hagerty says a #1 condition GTS is only a $9k ride. No way, mo money!

If you click the link, then when the page comes up showing its not available anymore, look to the right and click the link that says 'see original listing' (or something like that)...its still there, I just looked at it. I like the missing speaker, the garbage bag sticking up out of the hood, the wrinkled passenger door, and the invisible driver's door window

But what about the giraffe-neck scoop in the first two photos?  A little hard to spot in the graffiti-soaked wall. LOL

I see it there, but it's not in the other pics......and maybe the door isn't mis-shapen, it could be the roller brush for the flat black primer marks are deceiving.. Both the missing emblems and such on the trunk, and the very not smooth rear bumper stand out. But I guess i shouldn't talk....neither of mine look anywhere near as good as that one------
