STARLINER SOLD...   Thanks, Forum

I have a '61 Starliner that has been in inside storage for over 35 years. It has a 390, 4V engine, 3 spd Cruise-O trans and pwr/brakes...has not been started in many years. Has original yellow/white paint and all interior is in car. The only damage I know of on car is a small rust place in the trunk and a dent in the left side will need a windshield (busted) and a rear glass (someone stuck a '60 Starliner glass in the rear). I have the correct moldings and may be able to come up with the glass BUT... that is not included in the price of the car. Good TN title and car does roll. $5800.00 cash or cashiers check only, no trades. May be able to help on delivery if going North or West.
Thanks, Rick

I bought this '60 Starliner in a package deal of 7 amazed at the original condition of this car. Has been in storage about 30 years and the floors, etc... look showroom fresh. It is a 352, auto & pwr/strg. Was on list to do a frame-off but potential buyer passed away. Rick

Not sure where you live but I am in eastern part of TN (Knoxville area), the machine shop that I have used for about 15 years is in Pigeon Forge (home of a lot of hot rod &  car shows, etc) and the average Y-block re-build runs about $2500 to $3000... that is total cost which includes machine shop cost, parts and labor cost for building.. That assumes an engine is sent to be re-built... not for a new build where everything has to be supplied.
I built 22 T-Bird 312 engines in a row several years ago for a local T-Bird club and the average out-the-door price was just a little over $3500 each but most of the engines had new BT 4V manifolds, new Holley carbs & new MSD ignitions.
I know prices vary depending on locale but that seems to be on the high side. Rick
