@Mikef2927 – This is the same car that was on Craigslist for the past six months. The owner is a very angry man. He wants $39,000 ...

Hey Mike, I think you're talking about the guy I bought the car from. He seemed like a nice guy to me. I'm not in Jax, and have not advertised the car on Craigslist

@alohagregg1 – If anyone has any questions about the car, please don't hesitate to ask. This cars runs and drives like new! I would not hesitate to drive it anywhere. It starts with a touch of the key and idles smooth and quiet the moment it fires up. The transmission shifts beautifully, and the brakes are excellent. It amazes me what a smooth ride this car has! Some lucky guy or gal is going to get a great car. Very hard to find an unmolested Ventura bubbletop in this condition. Thanks everyone! ...

It’s actually pretty easy to find. It was on Craig’s List in Jacksonville for six months.

Good morning! The floors, frame, rockers, sills, doors, fenders,trunk, and hood are all rock solid, no rust issues. The undercarriage is a bit dusty, and heavily undercoated in areas, but not hiding any issues. Cars in the hot humid environment of Florida tend to rust up top first. This car has two very small rust spots in the bottom of the left and right rear pillars. Please see the pics with the ruler, each spot is about a quarter of an inch. Also pictured is a spot in the right upper pillar that looks like it had paint work at one time. There is an area on the left of the trunk lid where the paint has bubbled up in a small spot, no rust there, just a paint issue in a small area. It's a great car, and very presentable as is, but not perfect.
