Looks pretty straight overall, just a dented rear fender & missing a side window. Damn cheap price, too! (One could probably resell the wheels to recoup that)

sadly, the wheels do not come with the car...so the buyer will need to BYO wheels.... still, I'm hoping someone who's traveling east with an open trailer could help me out to save it, but who knows?

So Chris, you already called him because the a says nothing about the wheels? Go ahead and pay for shipping, it's cheap enough and you would want to put a 1500 from a later X in it anyway.

That's literally in the middle of nowhere. Lived in that neck of the woods in a past life.

yeah, I talked to him. Nice guy, wanted to save the car. Got it from a friend for whom he was cleaning out a building & it was in it....the friend claimed he has & would find a title, but the seller doubts he actually will. The photo has wheels from the seller's car on it...said it was in a garage with the engine & front suspension in pieces, bolted enough of the front suspension together/wired transmission in place to get it on a dolly..only 2 actual Fiat wheels located & the tires may not even hold air, so BYOW.

Indeed, if there were/is a relatively inexpensive way to get it relocated from the middle of nowhere (which is pretty much also how the seller described his location....sounds wonderful, actually) to east TN, I'd definitely put it back as a future project or body double for the still-black wagon.

There is a future for heavy lift drones.....imagine transporting it that way.

I thing the future for heavy lift drones has more to do with logging and fighting forest fires. And yes it could lift a 128 wagon but the fuel cost to go any distance would be high. Logs are more valuable.
