Top mounted condensers had long in and out hoses that both came from the right side. That allowed you to unbolt the condenser (while the system was still filled with Freon) and then flip it up and over to lay it upon a blanket on the right rear fender while you worked on the engine.

Ok for all the decoders out there some more pics. Its all I have and no front end pic sorry. Solid around the front and back glass. Floors I didnt look at from above but look good from below. As you can see the engine tin looks good with a nice layer of oil for protection.

The bent rear corner where it was snagged did not damage the rear quarter at all.
Straightforward fix. With the side trim all there on both sides the body it virtually free of door dings and the like.

I can't be sure the rear grill is around. I didn't see it in their garage but didnt look either.

It appears someone did some interior decorating in the past when looking at the door panels. Both bench seats done in the same velour. That velour is nice in the hot AZ summer.

No rips did I find. Good time capsule "updated" interior.

Oh, full disclosure. The rally's with roller tires does not come with the car.
Those are mine That I lent the owners son when he was 17 and looking to fix and drive the car. One thing led to another and he is a senior in college now.

Original steels with flat tires comes with the car. Hubcabs we'd have to look.

Thanks Dan and Dave and Motohead and Matt of course and the rest.
I have not been on the forum in a couple years now...its nice to be back on.
I'm still driving my 65 semi regularly. Not as much as I'd like though.

Currently i'm restoring a 72 240z that I look forward to driving later this year.
But its for resale.

One local az forum member has expressed interest in this vair. I'm just trying to do a solid for a friend so we will see what happens.

Thanks everyone!

There is a comment about the outside mirror missing. This car probably didn't come with an outside mirror as it doesn't have back up lights or the 2sp wipers. I believe the mirror became standard in '66 although it does look like there are holes on the door so someone may have added one. It also looks like the interior metal was painted along with the floor vents as the screw below the vent looks like it has paint on it. For the dash color it should have been the interior color on a 500. That being said it looks like a very solid car with some great potential.

There has been no mention if the car has been repainted at some point or not but it does appear to be a very solid car, especially if it has older or original paint on it.

The asking price is very reasonable and shipping costs for me to get it here to the East Coast are reasonable enough that not buying it might be a mistake.

I sincerely hope someone buys this car before I have an opportunity to think about it to much.

Yes it appears the inside has been painted.
Not sure about exterior. If it was painted it would have been done
in the 1980's. I thought the paint was original but not 100%.
If you look at the deck lid hinges it appears maybe it was sprayed.
But someone here with more knowledge of factory paint patterns would have a better idea.
Thanks for the input

Yes looks like white when looking at sheet metal where the rear grill should be.

Well a couple days and the forum has pretty well broken it down.

That's why we're here.

Thanks
