BstMech Yeah, I like the warranty thing, that's good!

Kevin45 Hemmi,
Not a bad price if you can get it for $500. Part out everything though. Glass, electric door and window switches, etc. But before you plan on getting him down to $500 don't tell him what you want it for. Tell him you need it to drive back and forth to work because you just found a new job. Give him a BS story and tell him you can only afford $300 then maybe he'll want to unload it anyhow and let it go for $400. Worth a try. He's probably only got $100-200 in it anyhow. BTW make him throw in a 30 day warranty just for sheet and giggles.

Good deal? will it work?

Hey Crew.
I just drove around town N country today and ran across a mid 70's convertible Cadillac. Its got the 500ci in it and (i believe) the turbo 400 tranny. He said he drove it around the lot and it runs, but not good. It dont matter cause Im, rebuilding anyway. The body is ough, but its complete.
Heres my question. He wants 600 bucks, but I think I can talk him down to 500 or so. If I sell the body or pull it to the salvage yard, I will get probably 75-100 bucks back in salvage. And, I can sell some parts like the AC comp, radiator, grill, bumpers, ect.. to make a little more back. Sound good or should I hold off? I keep hearing of these 250 dollar motors, but I never see em around here. Tnx, HG
