  • Bought One That Actually Drives

    Thats right, you can get in it, start it, and drive down the road and stop it. 1974 Mallard with 70k original miles. Bought new by an attorney in Aiken, S.C. And then he sold it to the Salleys in 1990. They have kept it garaged ever since. The car is tired and needs alot of cosmetics, but "Listen Todd", no rust. It will be a driver that I can restore as I go. Here is a pic as long as it loads

        Forgot, all paperwork including window sticker, passport to service, and a folder full of maintenance records. I don't usually get that with the projects that I have bought in the past. Usually lucky to get a
        key.

              Let me get it home and I will shoot some more pics of her. The old owners are at the beach this weekend so I cannot pick it up until next weekend. Should have taken the trailer with me last weekend
