I'm completely out of my element here, so I turn to you all for advice.
I'm sitting with my 66 GT Mustang at Cruise Night Friday night and a guy strikes up a conversation. His son-in-law needs to move an old car off some property he's renting so he can vacate the lot. He needs to 'get rid of' a 50 Merc, 4 door, rear suicide doors, flathead v8. I went and looked at the car today. Very rusty, trunk and hood didn't want to open too far because of rusty hinges, glass all good, interior completely trashed.
What is this thing and is is worth rescuing it from being towed to a wrecking yard?
Scott

i just looked at 1 similar in my area in the last month or so. the "gentleman" was asking $850. way to much body work for me,i found out on friday someone made an offer of $400. it was the ONLY offer he received! hope this helps.

I'm getting the impression I could have this for maybe a couple hundred and the cost of towing. I don't think I really want it, but I hate to see old iron get junked!
