BRIEF DESCRIPTION: These cars are getting much harder to find, just as 2 door models. This car is still wearing 90% of its original paint from 63. Its one of aprox 5000 ever made to come from the factory with a 4 spd. Another rare option, are the 8 lug wheels. Very original, this car was never modded or "turned into a street racer" its whole life. It has aprox 90k original miles on it and has been parked most of the last 20 yrs. With very little work we got the car to fire and run, BUT there is a noticable noise coming from the back of the engine-lower part. Very possible a rod knock. Other then that theres no smoke or other issues. At the moment the driveshaft was removed (but comes with the car) because it was towed a few times in the last 20 yrs from location to new location. Some other parts not seen in the pics do come with the car. Once a few yrs ago while being loaded onto a trailer, it rolled forward into another car and dented the front end at a really low speed impact, hence the primer up front. The headlight components and bumper are loosely bolted on at the moment . Some replacement good parts do come with the car too for the restoration. Personally, Id fix the motor, brakes, put the driveshaft back in and drive it like that. Maybe try and blend the front end repair to rest of the original paint too. Do a few repairs to the interior, toss down a new trunk mat and take it to cruise nites just like that :)DONT BID UNLESS YOU HAVE THE FUNDS IN HAND BUILD ANYWAY YOU WANT, NO HARM NO FOUL ! Excellent Investment / Clean Clear Arizona TitleIf you have under 10 feedbacks, Ill be emailing you if you bid to make sure you are legit, if we do please reply or we will cancel your bid. Up for Auction: I wont end it early, sorry.
DRIVETRAIN: factory original matching #s 389 4V motor, along with 4 spd. I can start it up but its a tad noisy so Ive not run it long. Very original under the hood, with no mods at all, almost unheard of finding these days. The car was driven the way it came from the factory and it did it very well for about 30 yrs before it was taken off the road. Not sure what gears are in the rearend. The car does roll and steer ok. It does need a brake master cylinder (among other things obviously) INTERIOR: take a look at the pics, Az heat has taken its toll on alot of it, but in some areas its not bad. It does look decent in the Pics, but it is dry and the vinyl, a bit stiff. ..but usable ! Carpet and headliner are the worst. The very cool period correct Rear Window Shades are priceless ! Restore it how you feel and its a win win either way. The rear floors are solid both inside and out. Because moisture under the carpet off and on over the yrs the pass front side floor took the worst of it. I took a screwdriver to the floors from underneath and was able to make a few holes in the PS front the most, not front salt or snow, but from moisture collecting under the front carpet and padding over the yrs. I think if the interior was taken apart some, cleaned and restored it would come back nicely and keep the survivor look. Factory AM-FM radio is pretty rare too for 1963, as is the Factory Dash Tach. Windows all seem to work fine and in good shape. A good cleaning and a few new items inside would come back nicely. Windshield I believe is cracked. The trunk, due to its rubber trunk mat, over the yrs also held in moisture and the trunk pan too took on some rust (LOTS of pics) Its totally usable as is, it just depends on how far you want to restore it. Personally, Id fix the motor, brakes, put the driveshaft back in and drive it like that. Maybe try and blend the front end repair to rest of the original paint too. Do a few repairs to the interior, toss down a new trunk mat and take it to cruise nites just like that :)
EXTERIOR: the body very straight for its age,with a few dents front to rear, but nothing too major. Some of the trim is missing. But the car did avoid your typical eastcoast rust and rot, spending most of its life in West TX and AZ. Not saying its totally rust free, it has some along the bottom part of the PS lower fender. Rockers and rear 1/4s in great shape and there is nothing hiding because its still wearing 90% of the original Bronze paint. Rear bumper and stainless are in really nice shape. Solid nice car overall. Check out all the pics carefully .
SUSPENSION: the suspension looks normal from what I can make out, basically the way it came out of the factory except some stuff replaced over the yrs from normal wear n tear. Sits nice on the factory 8 lug wheels. Some older air shocks are out back, not connected. Im sure the car has a factory HD suspension all around from the factory. This is a really cool car and not like any of seen in over 25 yrs around here. Tires are of course very old and dry rot, but do hold air.
Minimal rust under the car, but while in CA it did get some rot along the lower body. But nothing like an Eastcoast car. Check out ALL the pics below ----->it may take a full minute for them all to load if you have a slow connection, so be patient AND looks for the extra scroll bar on the right side. Az gets maybe 12" a yr of rain and Az very dry climate. more info AFTER the pics etc. There are 100 large pics.
Probably The BEST represented Panchos on Ebay. Shows you all the good as well as any bad. We put a lot of time and effort in marketing our cars. People wait months for a car this solid to come up for sale and even if you have to pay shipping to your area, it still beats paying a body shop to hopefully fix a rusty car for weeks. Having as much as the original steel on a non restored car these speaks volumes. Survivors are getting harder to find !
Also, if you buy a car thats been "restored", who knows what surprises are hidden under new paint or thick undercoating. People are flipping cars all the time when most of the jobs are fast, for a quick buck and quality suffers.
Email us with ANY questions before you bid please
Our Impeccable FEEDBACK speaks for itself. We show you as much feasibly possible via pics.
Dont let auctions with little to no pics try to fool you.
