I'd buy either if I had the money, sorry.

I'd be interested in the Legacy but $400 would be my offer. Sounds like it's gonna need a lot of work for $1000. My friend got a running and driving LS wagon for $200, only had 152K on it & just needed new struts and an exhaust. That leaky gas tank is a real value killer and a PITA to fix...

In reply to SlickDizzy:

i did post 1000 or best offer, so if you wish to think about i would counter with 500 if nothing else...i have just did the front brakes in jan, the new clutch, and it looks i might have to redo the rear pads this week. yes, i know the tank is a bitch..i was thinking is nothing else a feul cell in the rear hatch....

This is may not be what you want to hear but would you consider parting it out?

The Brighton still needs a few odds and ends but if I brought another car home I would probably wind up living in it.

Friends of my grandparents had that exact same Rambler. They would come over to visit her, and the hubby would inevitably wind up slipping out, and go sit in the car for hours listening to baseball games.... With his wife, well, it was his couple hours of peace and happiness. Too far away for 1k, would be fun to drop a V-8 in it, and not touch the exterior. A 4-door grandma sleeper...

ooog, the Rambler is ALMOST close enough for me to go get it. That's about the single most impractical car for an MN DD however....

Trade my ZAV Jeep Cherokee for the Subie?

Are you sure the leak is in the tank?
My Lego of the same vintage was leaking at about 1/2 full, and I found the leak to be in the fuel filler neck. A couple of hours at the junkyard and it was fixed for about $20.

If you were in Florida, I'd jump on the Rambler

Wow. That would also make the rambler useful in the winter....
