CHANGE IN PRICE. 13,285 original miles. This car was purchased new in Bedford, PA and soon after put in a garage by a gentleman who had become elderly and no longer drove. There it stayed until his estate was sold and this car along with it, probably 6 or 7 years ago. To the best of my knowledge, a younger man bought the car and had no place to put it. It sat outside until I bought it last Fall. The pictures pretty much indicate the cars overall condition. Under close examination I am not able to detect any paint work except on the rear, as if the trunk was scratched and then repaired. I see no indication of any damage, past or present. The lower valance under the rear bumper has some scrapes, and there is a place or two where surface rust exists due to chipped paint. Absolutely no rot of any kind anywhere (note little black plugs in door jambs that would indicate it has been rustproofed) EXCEPT for some bubbles under the vinyl top. The car appears shiny in the pictures, and it is. However, the top surfaces would sparkle if they were buffed. I prefer to leave a car like this "as found." The chrome sparkles as new, the ashtrays and lighter are unused/untouched, never smoked in. If you remember the scent of a new Ford in 1972, this one still has it. The options are; power steering, brakes, automatic transmission, A/C (works), AM-FM stereo (works), Brougham interior, right hand mirror and that's about all I have observed. The tires are in fine condition, the exhaust is brand new, the transmission shifts exactly as it should and the engine is 13,000 mile quiet, solid and strong. There is no doubt in my mind the mileage is correct and is the sole reason I bought this car. That and I couldn't stand to see it sit outside another month. I have too many cars and I had to decide what stays and what goes. Should you have an interest, please be in touch and I will do my best to offer additional info or photos.
Update 3/12/208 A gentleman from New Mexico asked for some specific pictures and had a question about what I thought was rust as a result of a stone chip. Upon close inspection (see photos) there is some rust on the driver's rear quarter and passenger front fender. Please accept my sincere apologies for my description (above) being inaccurate. It was, by no means, intentional.
