I really believe for that kind of money, you could find a car with alot more finished on it. Fact is though, I have bought something against sound advice simply because I wanted it! Good luck Ernest.

no argument , the car could be made into something great , IF you have the time and money to complete it...the value of an object is what is worth to you. if it is what you want to tackle then by all means , go for it,,,,,Paul

While I do agree you can get more car for your money, it wouldn't be a back-halved 63 Chevy II. If a back-halved 63 Chevy II is what you want and this guy has a nice piece, buy it. There aren't that many 63's out there.

Back in 1988, when I was 18, I wanted a 70 Chevelle. I searched long and hard for just the right car. Found a 307 2bbl car that had never been wrecked and still had the hubcaps on it. It cost me good money and I pulled pretty much everything out of it but it was a solid base with everything intact. I still own the car.

Howdy Signs, I hope you are well my friend.

First impression: too high priced. I believe "you could get more bang for you buck".

After some thought & investigation: Everyone here including myself can say this: "You could not build this car for that price" ... no matter what, you will be into the car for a pretty penny if you have plans to keep her. So what is the question... you & the seller are a grand or so from making a deal on a very desireable car that is hard to find laying around. I mean it is a 63 chevII w/ backhalf, cage, all the hard stuff... looks like tin work is done... lots of extra parts too... car is not that incomplete. It is always our nature to down-play a car w/o a motor, doors installed, glass, in primer etc.... fact is that he HAS done a lot of work on that car... beauty is in the eye of the beholder. A roller 63 in decent condition is worth what- about 4K maybe.... then you have the back half work, cage, wheels/tires, etc... maybe it is not that bad of a deal. I could see walking much easier from this if it were not a 63 chevII... Good luck... when all else fails, PRAY about it. God Bless, Scoot

If it were a 66 or 67 it would be worth more in my opinion. One of the best looking cars ever for a race car. JMO

well rigs, how in gods world are you? im good brother,

i thank all the feed back on this car, the owner "kenny" like i posted
before, he would need 7k just to come out even, but he would take
6k, and this thing was built good for him, to keep, not enough time
to work on it, as the rust shows, and im concerned about the rust
around the windows, but yea all the metal is done from the trunk
to the front, he has both metal/fiber fenders and hood with the car,
but still just thinking about it for now, long haul, and right now
my work is piled til september, ernest in tx!

I've bought crap just because my pocket was on fire.
