There's a few 65-66 fastbacks in storage not too far from me. The guy is asking 2500 for a shell of one, 4500 for another and 6000 for an A code. All are missing doors, hood etc with no interior. They all have at least a little rust but they have been kept dry for awhile it looks like. I'm really tempted to grab one of them but I'd not as big a fan of the 65-66's as I am the '67-'68's. I know its hard to value these by my description but do they sound like something I should be jumping on?
Is the ones for 4500 and 6000 shell also?...You didn't specify
More complete than the 2500 shell but not much more. The A code at 6k has the engine (no carb or valve covers) and is a roller. both the 4500 and 6k cars are rollers and have the glass and the fenders as well..
That green one looks like it's in really good condition. I'd fork out cash for that.

the bottom half of one of the qtrs on the green one looks like it's trash. Is the green car likely to be work the difference in price to the $6k from the $2500 shell? Money is tight right now and I'd have to stretch it to pickup the $6k car and just store it for a few years. If the car needs pans and a qtr how much would that affect an offer price? If it's a worthy investment I can always come up with the money and store one or two. If it's just a decent deal that will likely turn up again, I'd probably be better off if I passed and waited for a '67 fb..
Hard to tell from the photos- if it needs a qtr and pans- might be priced at the high end of what its worth. Still FB are desireable and valuable- compare a dynacorn body- if you can spend a week or two and have a rust free shell- you are way ahead of the curve. I would prowl around under those cars and get the most rust free one you can-if the 2500 needs the same repair as the green one I would get the 2500 one.
