The Next Barn Finds Project Car?


It has only been a week since the Starlet shipped out and we have already been on the hunt for our next project car. Well, we may have found the perfect one today! We had originally planned to limit our budget to what we sold the last project for, but decided this one what worth splurging a little. The car runs and the seller has agreed on the reasonable price of $2,800. Instead of just announcing what it is though, we wanted to see if you guys can guess it from this photo. Many of our readers have questioned my preference in cars lately, so we went with something a little more conventional. Don’t worry though, we will take a unique angle on it. Now, any guesses?

      Just because the v8 badge is missing on a primer gray fender doesn’t mean that it isn’t a v8.
