    This is a very nice looking coupe! Looks like it would be a great start for someone to build just what they want. I'm not sure, but it seems to me the price is a bit high without the engine and trans, but the body sure does look good. If the body is rust free as stated, and with what seems to be a very nice paint job, maybe it is worth it. What do you think?

    As you say, IF it's as rust free as it looks, $2,500 seems reasonable. I wonder about the interior, does it have one that goes with the car?
    Yeah, a little misspelling. VolarIe, excellAnt. Oh well, I guess Ebay isn't a spelling contest.

    I'd say if you can't do paint and bodywork it might be a good deal.
    And you like yellow....

    Even if you can do paint and body work, you'd be inching up on $2,500 by the time you're done. All the supplies, including abrasives, paint, reducers, activators, primers, etc aren't cheap if you use quality products and it adds up quick. That's assuming you have a rust free car to start with, not to mention your time has to be worth something.
    Of course, the person that buys the car still has to get it home which may or may not be inexpensive depending on where they live and where the car is.

    No surprise there, some guys like yellow. I've had one yellow car in my life I thought is was going to be a great driver with only 10k on it. Turned out it didn't have miles on it because it was always in the shop, biggest pos I've ever had.

    OH wow! They are both really beautiful!! That Aspen T-top is so cool, but the Dart is too! I have always liked yellow cars, but there isn't too many to be seen around - never has been. The first yellow car that I remember distinctly is my uncles early 50's Cadillac coupe with a black top. I was really young, but I remember being struck with the color. Another one that really sticks in my memory because of the beautiful yellow color is the 1968 Plymouth Fury Sport Suburban wagon with woody sides that my neighbor bought new when I was a kid. I think that color was not much different from what is on OY now - perhaps it was a bit more yellow. I am pleased that OY is the color it is. It is distinctive and I think very good looking. Obviously, I like yellow cars. Glad you bought the one from EB.
