Article said car had been listed before, so don't know what price seller has in mind; package deal with '69 Monza.

Both cars have been listed on the Richmond Virginia craigslist for a couple of months. [richmond.craigslist.org]

Here is a cut and paste from that ad:
" 1966 Corvair Corsa Fitch Sprint - Must Move - Best Offer (Virginia) "

"1966 Corsa Fitch Sprint. This car is a RARE find! Corsa originally from California. The car has been in storage since 1978. I planned on restoring, but just never got to it. Coupe has an original black interior and in good shape. Fitch Sprint roof and custom hand-crank sunroof. The car has rust in normal places. 4-speed manual trans and 140hp engine with 4-carb progressive linkage, and other Fitch options (engine in storage).

Also have 1969 Monza 110 coupe, automatic, bundled with purchase - originally blue with blue interior. Has rust in usual places. Must take both cars and must be towed. Local pickup only.

Separate items for sale include 180hp Turbo engine in storage with 6,000 miles since it was last rebuilt, and miscellaneous spare parts and trim.

Must move - make me an offer. Email for additional photos. SERIOUS inquiries only - must sell."

There is no phone number attached to this ad, only an e-mail link through craigslist of 3b12ed055c4c317b8a2957935f6581a6@sale.craigslist.org

The craigslist ad does have several photo's

It's not just that the car has been sitting since 1978, although it obviously shows signs of that. I have to wonder why a 1966 car would need enough restoring to park it in 1978 anyway.

Oh you west coast people.

I bought my 64 Spyder in 1976 here on the east coast. It already had a "restoration" done on it. That included rust repair, paint and a "rebuilt" engine. It did come with the GM boxes the new cylinder assemblies arrived in. Interior was original and looked fine. The car had even been stored in a "junkyard" for a few years prior to the "restoration". [It was Lawhorn's Used Auto Parts, the place with the Crosley on a pole as a sign.]

And everyone said what a great OLD car it was! 12 years old was a long time back then for 60s cars in daily use.

Nobody here has it for sale.
Scottymac saw it listed in one place and I had seen it in another which is why I replied with additional information.

Like you, I generally won't take an seller seriously if they don't include a ballpark price in their ad.
I am sure I have missed out on at least one great deal, but am just as sure that I have saved a lot of time and effort by not replying as well.

Maybe I'm naïve, but I don't understand how this story made it to Barn Finds. Because its sitting beside an old barn? Or does the owner have connections with the Barn Find staff?
