Found 67 Long Roof

Found this in Tularosa New Mexico last weekend. Stopped to take a pic and a guy walking by ask what I was doing next to the car. We talked a bit and he said the owners son had died and the car is for sale. The lot it is sitting on has a for sale sign on it. Owners name is Ysidro Garcia, the guy I talked to said he was in the phone book but I couldn't find him. I was just driving through cuz I was in a hurry so I didn't pursue any further.

As for the car I took a quick look inside...everything is there and looks to be in decent shape. Original radio still in place and all trim and knobs are still there. I saw bubbling paint behind the rear wheels but all at the very bottom. I think there was some minor front end damage but didnt look real close. Had a home made trailer hitch that came through the back bumper. Sides and doors looked straight and glass was all there. At a glance it looked solid.

Car is located behind either the Dollar General or the Family Dollar on the main street though town. Both stores are there...I don't remeber which it was but they are close together on the same side of the street.

Just waiting to be put back on the road

Come to think of it there may have been a phone number on the lot for sale sign. I didnt really look at it cuz I was staring at the car, and I didn't think to look at the sign again after checking the phone book at a gas station down the road. Like I said I was in a hurry to get to my destination.

I keep thinking about this wagon even though I haven't the time , space, or money to work on two Novas at the same time. I used google maps to do a virtual drive through of Tularosa and found the exact location. 565 U.S. 70, Tularosa, NM. The car is sitting behind a place called "Charlies 4X4" next to the Family Dollar. I googled Ysidro Garcia and came up with an address of 1100 Monte Vista Ave and a phone number, but the number had been disconnected.

Lets hear opinions on the value of the car based on my vague description.
