Looked at a '76 on Ebay right now that is in original condition best I can tell. Has some door bottom rust and such. Is it common to find 76-78 cruisers in this condition? In other words, with all the "pieces". I'm not quite ready to buy, probably six months away. Want to do an acid dip frame off, but don't want to replace major body pieces if possible. Did one in the mid 90's. I got the feva'

Nothing special there. Not a lot of rust...but man that engine is FILTHY! LOL
Radio cut into bottom dash pad.
By the looks of the brake master it will need some love.
Looks like some body work (probably shoddy) done on rockers and rear corners.
Rear fenders cut. No pics of front floors or under rear mat.
Probably worth about 4-5 here in NW. But I would not pay it. Keep looking for a rust free and unchopped cruiser.
5-7 should get you a lot more.

Missing all the emmission items from the engine compartment.

Engine - In original condition. Tight engine, excellent runner!

Rear sill looks rusted and primed.

Yeah, the engine needs some attention! Did alot of rust repair on my '78 which looked much worse than this. I was just trying to get an idea of how common Cruisers like this are. I'd prefer something a little nicer as far as body condition goes. I spoke to the guy listing this one and he's hoping to get $6500 for it. Not too bad.

Its hard finding a 75+ with no rust for less than 10g around these parts...thats why I got a 69 with no rust.
Glad I did too! Rust sucks.
