First off.....HI :D.....new to the forums and i had a few questions....



Im looking to purchase one of these cars and i was wondering what are some common problems with them so i know what to look for.




After looking at the car (by no means a professional) i saw there was rust by the back taillights (ive seen this on alot of these cars)....is this alot of money to repair???

with 150,000 miles on it....how much should the car be going for?

From what I've seen of these cars (77-79), they hold up pretty well to rust. Much better than some of the earlier models. It all depends on what they've been subjected to over the years. The 425 is said to be a great engine. Never had a prob with the one in my old '77 Eldo long ago. Haven't had my 79 Coupe all that long, but it runs like a charm.

As far as money goes, I've seen recent examples as low as several hundred bucks, up to $25K. Are you getting a coupe or sedan (or Fleetwood)?
