As Seen on Craigslist – 1963 Coupe de Ville

I’ve made some questionable automotive purchases, but even I would be wary of buying a car that is only photographed on a trailer.  That said, there’s something strangely appealing about a white car with a pea-green interior, especially at this price.  I’d want to check thoroughly for any evidence of the rust monster and make sure the “needs manifold” disclaimer isn’t there to mask a different, more ominous engine noise, but if the car is complete and relatively rust-free, you could probably do worse for the money.  The shrunk-down fins atop looong flanks are pretty much standard Caddy fare for this era, and stand out in a crowd even more today than they did 40 years ago.  Just don’t try to parallel park it.
