Hi all,

I've got to sell my project. Lets just say another binky in the house has something to do with it. I'll be back one day for sure, just have to drop this project for now and let it go to someone who will actually get to it in the next 5 years, lol.

Anyway, you all remember this car. Found in Hartford off of craigslist. Its a black on red 1961 1600. Complete car, rust in typical spots, but not terrible. Engine is free, brakes are shot, but it rolls and steers like a freakin' champ! Interior clearly needs help, but all manageable stuff.

She will ride on ebay next week with a buy-it-now of $6,000 and a reserve fairly close to it if I don't find a buyer through our group here. Just trying to get about what I paid, which after cleaning and really digging into the metal seems to be fair.

email me direct - s k i n g "a t" k i n g i n d u s t r i e s . c o m (no spaces of course)
Text before calling - 203-455-four, three, eight seven

Thank you so much for the warm welcome everyone. Wish I could've finished this one with all of your help. Pics attached.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year all!
Shenton

Congratulations on the additional binky. My son is in a similar situation. First child is due in May and his wife, my daughter-in-law, is pressuring him to swap his Volvo C30 (which he just paid off) for a wagon of some sort.
