Yep

The body is in excellent shape and it looks like it has all the chrome pieces.

The interior is workable and it runs, not bad shape for a car nearly 50 y.o.

It's worth 55.......

If it has "Dove C" heads buy it and title it before they realize it! Oil pressure Schmoil pressure,if the motor sounds good then it's probably a gauge and besides the oil pump will be less than 50$ and half a days work to fix.

Umm not really.if you have a good mechanic that's not going to up sale you then it would probably cost around 500$ to replace the oil pump.

an engine only needs 4lbs of oil pressure to run. Not saying i'd recommend it but well like was said, if it has those heads buy it and trailer it home so you don't screw them up.

it seriously is probably the guage, a lot of them older rigs used gauges with capillary tubes to the gauge and all it takes is a little gunk and it looks like she's gonna blow.
