I was surprised to see the wire wheels

So code P is for optional rear ratio for non A.C. cars

But K is for A.C. 

It had cruise control but not on data plate

This could be a good find after all. I know if the horn works it sell for $450.  The wires are knock off. 48 spokes not the 40 spokes.  Nothing wrong with 48 spokes.  I see the rubber vacuum hoses in the engine compartment looks good. Your right the engine might need new rubber seals along with transmission but should run. Thanks for the photos for all to see.

Only body option codes are on the body tag. No chassis options. Code P is for non tinted glass (plain glass)

this burn car can be saved ,a hardtop parts car would work . burn metal can be treated and sealed .any one looking to spend the time would have a rare car when finished . not too many 61 eldos left about 510 on last count around the world .good luck on getting it to the one who goes after it .

Ya maybe I should have told everyone it was missing an engine.

Unless the original owner tries to win it back i should get it. But those auction fees are high. She told me with the fees expect to pay twice what I bid.

Even if you didnt build this, you could fund your fleetwood project nicely with those parts. I just talked to a guy who sold a set of eldorado trim to a guy in sweden for like 4k. It would be a sadistic build, but it could be done. I'd buy it if I were anywhere close.

I talked myself into it. Don't know what the final outcome will be but I will be bidding. I have a couple of weeks to put new tires on my car hauler and money on deposit with the auction.

Thanks South Paw for bringing this to my attention. Though I know you had no thought that anyone would be crazy enough to buy it.
