I guess I'm different but I passed on one just like this one back in 1970 because of the color combination
How un American - It's Red White & Blue. The price is right once you figure what it will cost to get rid of the rust and restore it.
If it was rusted in those four obvious sites and not repaired, you have to wonder what else is lurking underneath the car.

Do you know the history of the car? (I don't)

It's kind of like buying bread at the store that's past it's expiration date. It might be fine  :)

You might also have a blue sandwich
As my mother used to say when she served moldy food, “it’s just like penicillin”. It might be good or it might be bad, but you got to taste it to find out  ;D
Owned since 1971, driven over 236,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

  My favorite 69/70 paint combination.  At a way former SAAC convention, one was there and the rumor was that there were ten built in that combination.
  Sub comment:  I thought the price was $62,500.  Are you adding in the buyer premium?

Without a doubt the big three from the past -shelby, corvette, Ferrari- are all lower in price for the moment and only best of breed of those cars are pulling big money. I am not sure if it's market saturation with all of them, but you can walk into a dealer and buy a new "Shelby" that will run circles around our old Shebly cars.

These cars are meant to be driven, so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all clean. Carroll Shelby
