Asking a question like this on a forum where people can't see the car, hear it run, open and close a door, inspect it for rust, this is in NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM a way to "not make a mistake".

It's a great way to START getting educated but there is NO WAY anyone here could give you a quality answer as to which this car is worth $5000 or $50,000. Not a chip in the paint? Sounds too good to be true.

I agree with Brian...it's impossible to either say good deal or not without seeing the car....Keep in mind, this car is 56 years old....how sure are you that it has original paint? Do you know how to check and where to look to be more sure that the paint is original? Have you driven the car or heard it run? Would it possible to post some pictures?

As Brian said "Sounds to good to be true." and usually if it does...it is.
