Looks like this car was originally Silver.  Seller states numbers matching.  Rear console too.  If it does not sell perhaps you can work something out.

Good Luck

Gentleman.

That is the very TA that I called Hammer on.  Although the owner did not misrepresent it, I dont think he was completely knowledgeable on what he has.  Too many details didn't add up.

I did talk to the owner at great length on it.  That was before I talked to Mike.  After Mike & I chatted I decided to pass it up.

Maybe I am making a mistake, since no other TA 455's are available.  Mike valued that ride between 7 to 8k.  A far cry from 12k.

I will be watching the ending of the auction with great interest.

I have a lot of respect for Hammer, but I would love to find a driver like that for 8k on a true numbers match 455 car. It all depends how much you want to spend to fix up what you buy. Do your research and you will see what they go for.
 Its cheaper in the long run to buy one thats already done.
Just my two cents.

Two cent opinions always taken & digested on this end.  From your sig. you have 4 76 TA's. How yummy is that! That white 76 sounds like exactly what I want!  Any for sale?   LOL

I agree completely with what you say Joe.  I really do not mind opening up the wallet wider IF, and I repeat IF I find what I want.  At this point I am lucky to find ANY 76 TA's for sale.  They are out there, most are black (least desirable along with orange) most are automatics.  I know what I want & I guess I will be holding out ( if I have to spend big bucks) for one that meats my criteria.  (I really want a white one!) Several 76's are being sold by dealers. Big bucks.  I am not spending 25-50K on this car.  My head & wallet will not allow it!!  Wish I had a fatter wallet....

I do thank all the posts directing me to TA's from various destinations.  I have looked at each & every one of them.  Most I have seen.  Some I have not.  So far no warm fuzzies!  Keep the suggestions coming!

Also I have been giving the 77/8/9 models a second look. I did see a nice 79 white one but it was a automatic.  My search is only a week old, or so.  I have to remind myself not to get impatient.

Thanks for the comments.  I really do appreciate them!

This just in...

Although I like the 76 models.  The 75 models aren't bad looking rides.    I do like silver.  This gives me the warm fuzzy that i seek.  Although I am sure it is out of my price range.

This 75 has caught me eye...
