Godspeed Old Friend

Post by DiscoMalibu on Wed May 08, 2013 4:50 am



Sold my '64 Mercury Monterey Marauder today for $3000. Strangely enough back to the guy I bought it from for $200 3 years ago! Well, it got a lot work since. Motor was mostly disassembled, tons of parts were missing. I put about $1400 into it, drove the crap out of it for a year and a half and had a ton of question and answer sessions with the old timers at the gas pump. I guess I can't complain too much, made a profit but I'm truly going to miss the car.

Looks like I'll be buying some '77 Malibu parts pretty soon. afro

Bummer...but hey that's still a pretty healthy return on investment. People buy back cars all the time, I bet he was waiting in the wings the whole time.

Certainly true, means more time spent on my Malibu! Although it was a fun ride even though it looks like Turd . It got plenty of attention even so, plenty of good stories from back in the day along the way. Another one gone but not forgotten, *sigh*. I guess the guy is going to finish up the odds and ends that I never got around to and drive it all summer!

i think an old car that still has original looking paint is bad A$$ definetly looks like it couldve been an old shine runner and looks like it has a few stories too tell. I can sum up the car in one word character

I agree, I didn't really care what it looked like, had a great time driving it. It's been in NY all its life, purchased at a dealer in Queens.

It'll be gone by the time I get home in the morning. Sad But! Its coming back, he wants to pay me to weld in the trunk pan and some other work! Smile

I have my eyes set on a '60 Chevy pickup for $1200 Beer
