1968 1600 asking 3500

Hey all, I'm hoping to do this quickly and painlessly, and I'd prefer to sell it to a roadster fan who appreciates the pedigree, rather than go on Craigslist. Due to a chronic illness of my wife, I've decided it was time to let the car go. It's sad, but priorities dictate this is the most appropriate course of action.

I'm looking to get 3500. That's what I paid 4 years ago.
Here's some details.

Matching number block and car Vin.
Epoxy coated subframe by previous owner, and also stated they put in a new clutch. But I have no proof.
Front brake Volvo conversion (still have original calipers and rotors with meat on them when I measured at the time. I don't remember the thickness off hand)
New tires
Original jack and an antenna key(I assume this is unoriginal)
Oil changes annually
2 air filter Assemblies and miscellaneous parts, including 8 chrome hubcovers, bumperettes (I think), a radio, brand new lightbulbs(not headlamps) etc.
No leaking fluids, and we performed a compression test with all 4 cylinders having matching findings.

The not so niceties. I was pulling the car apart for easier work 2 years ago when my wife's condition worsened. I reassembled the front fenders using new bolts, and also used seam sealer for a leakless bond.
Still needing addressing:
the doors and hood are off.
The temp sender needed replacing, so I purchased, but hadn't finished the job, so the air filter assembly is still removed. You can see the temp sender in the pics.
The battery is dead, but the car did start with a jump last summer and it ran with an idle around 700-800. I have driven the car historically on a very limited bases, as I was more interested in working on it before driving it.

I can take some. Wanted to post while I had the strength to do so. My profile photo is the car, and I'm trying to figure out how to post more on here.

So sorry to hear of your dilemma. Are you SURE your car is worth so little??

Peter-

I appreciate your concerns. As I said, I simply want to get my money back out. There is obviously still some work to do and it needs to be trailered out. So I'm just trying to be as reasonable as I can and move it along to an appreciative owner.

I am sure you will sell it at that price, no worries. The color scheme is almost exactly what we are going for on my daughters' 69...looks as good in a photo as it did in my mind.

Car Sold to Steve! He picked it up just in time despite the weather.

Great guy. Couldn't have placed it in a better home.
