I had a white '63 Fury; with 318, paid $100 for it in 1975. Had like 90K. Two tires and brakes fixed it right up. I drove it two years, then the wife came home with a bad rod knock. I junked it for $100, not bad............. I got a 63 Plymouth with a slant six and that was quite an upgrade. It had the push button auto trans and the engine was solid. I had that until I graduated and went to work for GM .......
Then paid $300 for a '72 Cricket with 30k, that had some bad wires in the dash that cost me $20 to fix. Guy sold it cheap because it wouldn't start at first. I got it started and handed him the money. Then it took me two days to get it out of his driveway.....Crickets were actually British, the Hillman Avenger rebadged for Plymouth. The running gear was MGB. I drove it for two years, and actually sold it for $100 more than I paid for it.
