Won't find a better one. If that is what you like and you can, then I would definitely get it.

Theres no picture of the engine, Which for one worries me. It could be all dirty & uncared for, yet the exterior of the car was obviously washed.


For the price, if it works well that's a great price but its a bit low so I would be suspicious. Contact the seller, arrange a test drive & Check over every inch of it, even the smallest things.... Air filter, cleanliness of engine (Will give you general idea of how that person cared for that car, not that it being clean will mean it runs)


Check tires too. I have no idea why but out of the 8 PTs I checked.... 6 had mismatched tire sets, 5 dealer & 1 private seller. The one that didnt have mismatch was up on ebay as "Like new, No mechanical problems!" for $4,800...

I got there, the muffler was loose (Not noticeable until you drove it) and the engine stalled TWICE in .3 mile test drive... key FOB was loose... basically... never trust what you read & never even risk buying into a problem, so start at ground zero.


So what you know for fact right now?

*Its a Route 66
* Its listed for 3,950
* Its Yellow
* It has 59,000 Miles

- Rest is to be discovered

Even if its a 100~ Pound trip to see the car, if you feel this is your potential baby do it. If its a dud your out 100 instead of 3,950 + Repairs... if its properly described then congratz on your new toy. Also ask them openly about known problems. A seller who doesn't try to hide anything & is honest is what you want & can trust. One who just keeps going "Oh it works great!" and gives you the run around means theres clearly an issue they want you to avoid finding out until its too late.


...This may be too much, But I have car buying paranoia so I nitpick everything to death....just how I roll, but has never failed me.

"Cambelt recently changed" - Why? THat's needed at about 100,000 miles, not 59,000, and is quite expensive.
It does say full service history, so look over that carefully.
