I looked at a 63 1/2 Ford Galaxie 500XL with bucket seats and console last fall, posted photos and descriptions here and was encouraged NOT to purchase such a rough car for the asking price, which was like $1700.  Since then I have not even seen another one for sale on my searches. Today I went down to the Chrysler Buy/Sell section and spotted an ad I missed where a seller is selling a 1950 Chrysler Town and Country for $1000 plus 2 other T&C's and a boatload of parts.  In his comment, he said "these have been sitting for 35 years." That got me thinking  and consider I am 54 years young  what were project cars like in 1975?  I was 11 and I can not remember.  Were they pristine and just mechanically worn out?  Were they still running but needed a fender?  Were interiors still nice used condition? Probably no way to get photos of what your project cars looked like in 1975 but I wonder if they were basically "driver" class cars now!  Perception is 9/10's of reality, some slogan like that  might be the issue.  What if what YOU had to restore in 1975 was so much easier than what WE have to restore now?   Maybe that partially explains, along with high cost, the decline in the restoration hobby. What do you guys and gals think?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
