I think it would be more than a winter-long project. How much time and money were you willing to invest in this and what were you looking to get out of it? Something show worthy or just drive around nice?

also looking at a complete 65 Lemans conv with the 326 and an extra 400ci, plus other extras and a GTO conversion already started. Only thing is it is $3000.

Do you think this Skylark is worth buying and selling on ebay? Think I could get near $1000 for it with the motor I have included? Thanks.

to be honest, the fenders probably will part out for the price they're asking, they look decent but then I'm not there onsite. Do you think they have much bondo or they are solid?

they appeared to be solid, but I haven't talked to the woman'* husband (he'* a trucker and on the road right now) He should be back this weekend for me to talk to. The doors looked good as well, and the uncracked dash looked good too. The bumpers would make decent cores and the rear end was there, although unsure about which it was. If it was a power brake car, those parts could sell.


If I can get it and sell it on ebay for over $700 then I will probably do it.

With a running engine I would think it would fetch at least $2K.

Heck yeah. Assuming it doesn't have major rust damage you can't see. I'm always looking at cars on Ebay and other sites. Pretty much any car built before 1973 that is mostly complete and not rusted out will fetch a couple grand.

Not true. There is a huge market for used parts if they are in decent shape. People go to Year One and the like if they are doing a show car, but prices are pretty high. Plus the quality isn't quite the same.
