Although the seller is clearly “a busy person” and unwilling to negotiate on the price, this car has a ton of character and if it’s as solid as it looks, it might be worth dealing with them. The whole rat rod/patina thing has just about jumped the shark, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t clearcoat the car as it sits, throw on a set of glass packs or side pipes, and cruise it just like that. It has a great vibe, a nice stance, and 60+ years of wear-and-tear (and probably the odors to go with it) that I can’t help but love it.
