1968 Skylark Custo0m in Mt Prospect

Postby Turbo Loyd » Wed Aug 18, 2010 7:43 pm

Steve Schmitt (hm 630-717-0429 wk 630-305-1898 e-mail sschmidt@nalco.com) called about his mother-in-laws 2 door coupe red with a white interior 1968 Skylark Custom.

The 48,000 mile car was purchased in San Francisco and lived there and in Hot Springs Arkansas most of its life. Since in Illinois only sees about 1000 miles a year in parades and showing off to the relatives in summer weather. It is reportedly rust free. The car is equipped with a V8 engine and automatic transmission with no A/C.

Steve is looking for somebody to give him an estimate of the worth of the car and of course to see the car for a fair price to all.

Any takers?

had the pleasure today of meeting with Steve,his wife and Mother in Law, Lois.
Lois has herself a mighty sweet little original 48000 mile 1968 Skylark Custom.
Few litle nicks and a scratch's, little puddy under the drivers side rear quarter extension
straight and shiney bumpers, chrome trim shines bright, skirts line up nice.
interior pretty much perfect, dont think anyone has ever sat in the back,
some staining in the headliner, paint a little faded but not gone.
Engine has a little tick, sounds like a thirsty lifter, the usual rear main territory markage.
ps, non power brake, non a/c, fairly recent brakes...decent older but not dry rotted tires.
we of course forgot the camara, but Steve is going to email some that he has.

very nice car...uber low miles...I'd rebuild the 350, hang some new tires and drive it.

pictures to come when we have them

Steve said if intersted, call to arrange a test drive and then you can talk price with him.
I looked at it and gave him a range that I thought was fair and would generate a sale, which is his goal.
That range is 4 to 7 thousand....now, I'm not an appraiser....but I play one on TV
