    I am looking to buy my first A body car. I am looking for a 1960-1961 Valiant that needs some work and restoration! I am in Ohio but I am willing to travel to pick up or ship a car. Send me a message or reply here with what you have. My state does require titles for vehicle to be driven.

    I like the 4 door more than the 2 door but willing to have either!

      You might start with Murray Park. Guy is a C body guy, but is in Ohio, and probably has southwestern sources and transporters bringing stuff to him. I would suspect either DVAP or CTC has decent bodied four doors available, as well.

      There was a stunning 4 dr for sale on Facebook Marketplace/Los Angeles a week or so ago. White exterior/blue interior.

      Also as long as I can stay within/close to budget, shipping is an option if the car is out west.

      Being it's a Unibody, a western car will usually be a better bet. Of course they will be exceptions, but usually.

      In a month I'll be able to bump my budget up to 4500. What's everyone got?

      Not yet. Not many hits. A couple fell through and most others are either custom show cars or $500 projects. I am looking for a rough driver that needs work (I like to tinker and do the work but I don't want to be doing a bunch of body work or looking for a gas tank because mine is too rusty).

      Just found an affordable '71 Javelin for someone who had been looking for about five years. As cars dwindle in number finding a saveable example takes more time.

      Well I think my budget of +- 4500-5k will find me a decent example. Hopefully I'll find one next year.

      I know of one, some rust but it's all there and runs. Sitting for a while. Vista ca.
      600 bucks. If it's not the one...its the one with parts for 'the one' like interior, motor, trim...just not body so much. Its white like many were.

        That would be nice to have.

        I mentioned before that two cars fell through. Well the guy with one posted on Facebook and we got to messaging again and he did tell me to message him in the spring (I'm mostly holding off til spring due to the weather) and we'll hopefully make a deal. The car is in CA but it's just the right car I'm looking for.
