Short time lurker, first time poster here. Great site!

Looking for a rust free car to start a father/son project. Hoping to find the right car in the next month or two. Would appreciate any tips on finding these cars and pricing.

Requirements:
-hardtop (no ttops or sunroof)
-solid body, floors, and subframes.
-not in desperate need of paint work
-at least okay condition interior, seats notwithstanding.
-Location: within ~500mi of southern IL or Detroit.

Preferences:
-manual trans
-not red interior
-crank windows

Running cars okay, but a roller would also be fine. We’ll be installing our own engine, trans, axle, and suspension.

Modified cars are okay. Not planning to do a restoration.

No set budget. Obviously we want the lowest cost that meets our criteria.

Suggestions welcome!

I just listed on lacrosse, wi cragslist my 75 camaro I bought in 78 and is in excellent condition with many upgrades and very street friendly. Not a project, but at this price will save you money. Always rust free. $11500

Thanks for the post. A couple weeks ago we found a solid 81 for $7k. Not as clean or original as yours, but good enough for our purposes. It had been repainted and undercoated a couple owners prior.

Hope you find a good home for yours!
