Man, those pix are just so sad....reminds of the SOR poster/postcard.
Speaking of 60s, my father-in-law's 84 is still for sale. Details were in the old forum, but it has some front end damage but runs great, good drivetrain, minimal leaks, AC blows cold, etc. Rust in usual places: rear fender lips and rear sill, no frame rot at all. He was asking $2k but I'm pretty sure he'd let it go for less than that. Front fender, headlight bucket, front bumper and a few other parts and it'd make either a great dailer driver or trail rig project. I'd hate to see it get parted out, but it has a LOT of good parts on it that work fine.
