    Just wondering why the motor would not turn over...even by hand? Seized or physical damage? Looking at this as a long term project. Thanks, Jerry.

    they usually make no claims and seems many of thier cars say "engine won't turn over, haven't tried"

    Car is in Tulsa, OK. I am going there for Thanksgiving, but I believe thier ads so no viewing either. Think thye just want to sell with no tire kickers.

    They also have a flood damaged 355 that "looks" good, but I imagine water has ruined just about everything..wiring, interior and gotta do the engine.

    The only way I would 'buy' that car, is if I got it for free.

    Figure it needs a new motor and gearbox, as well as complete electrical. $50,000+ in parts alone.

    Then to top it off, you have a salvage car.

    Best use for it is to be built into a track car.

    Oh yeah...forgot about the body damage. Figure the subframe as well as suspension is trashed....maybe even the frame itself.

    They wash their hands of any representation of the car what so ever. Doesn't put the warm and fuzzies in my stomach.

    The would need to give me money to take it.

    Strip it down to nothing....slap a motor and gearbox in it and take it to the track.

    This is the car to get if all you need is a couple of new seats, a cigarette lighter, or a couple of interior buttons/switches, or 3 wheels. Otherwise, consider it a value subtractor to your garage.
