They're the wrong mufflers for an Eleanor. I guess he couldn't figure out how to get to the side panels from there.

Is it just me or does the inside of the trunk ring alarm bells (sirens/warning flares/shouting midgets) about what the underside of this car probably looks like for anybody else?

That is one nasty (and not in a cool way) looking car.

I commented on the trunk rust. Maybe Eleanore people just care about body looks, doesn't matter if underside is rusted out!

It's amazing bidding is at $35k with no pics of underside, or did I miss where they're at.

225/60/15, the TTD's are 15x7 3.75 BS, front fenders are rolled, it will rub on the front slightly on on hard turn with a bump, like entering a parking lot

Jesus christ people, you never used to all be so critical!

Remember that thread recently about a man at a show who made a snide remark about it 'only' being a 6 cyl, and you guys were defending the owner?

I sure hope none of you guys commented in that thread! That would be quite hypocritical.

It shows the underside and it looks pretty solid to me.The rust in the trunk doesn't appear to be that serious in the pics.Almost just looks like something discoloured the metal or a very light surface rust...It also says that it is an R code fastback which is a shame if its true..

It's a T-code. By R code he meant San Jose.
