F/S 1964 Spyder Convertible

This is best described as a parts car or a project car. Couple small holes in the floor, that should be an easy fix, trunk is solid, battery box is solid. The building that the car was in collapsed in a snow storm, and eventually removed, leaving the car to the elements for a couple of years. This was a driving car when it was put away, and after the collapse, I lost interest in dealing with it. The car does have on it presently a fiberglass top, and the original canvas top is folded down into the boot area. Three of the 4 wheels turn, and one will need to be freed by the new buyer. The tires are just rollers, and one will need to be replaced to make moving it easier. Car is located in Woodstock Ct on the Southbridge MA border. Buyer will be responsible for removal. Car will be sold with a CT DMV sale of a non titled motor vehicle. CT doesn't issue titles for cars older than 10 years. Pictures will be available shortly. I will throw this out there starting at $2500 or best offer. I am flexible and want the car gone quickly, since my wife doesn't want to look at it the back yard all summer.

Depending on the buyer's state of residence, the CT no title should not be a problem. Georgia does not title old cars. When I moved to Oklahoma, I provided them with the registration and bill of sale and they they gave me an OK title. They had a book that had various state regulations and were able to verify GA did not title old cars. Hopefully other states are similar. Our tag/title offices are privatized, so they are a bit more efficient that state-run DMVs.

The car originally came from Georgia, and I haven't looked yet, but I might still have the Georgia title, if CT didn't take it when I registered the car. That was a very long time ago, 1982 if I remember correctly. I just came back in from looking the car over more, and there is no rust in the trunk floor. I checked the fenders and quarters, and they are also solid. I have no way to get under the car, so I can't report on that, but the top side looks very solid. I am almost tempted to get it running, put tires and brakes on it, and drive it as a rat rod. The only thing that stops me from considering this is my age, and so many other things that I have to do before I pass onto the next world. I don't want to leave a mess for someone else to clean up.

Got my first offer... the junk yard told me that they will pick it up and pay $200.
