1971 Buick Skylark for daily Driver?
Hi Scotty, I found a 1971 Buick Skylark with only 671 miles, they are asking 30k for it, at Streetside Classics.
What kind of problems might come up with a car sitting for so long ?
Im guessing there might be alot of work to do before I turn the key and start driving it
Unless there is documentation to prove the mileage I wouldn't believe it. If the car hasn't been used in 40 years there could be an unimaginable number of problems. Possibly a weekend toy or project car but definitely not something to think about as a daily driver. Also see what your insurance company says about it. A standard policy is probably not in the cards.
A find like that is quite rare and I would be super skeptical. The odometer could have rolled over once or twice, engine and transmission replaced, etc. There has always been a lot of car flip scams out there. Get an expert to check it out for that much ca$h first.
Run away, not worth it.
