I was thinking more in terms of corrosion in fuel lines, gas tank, even engine seized or trans locked from decades of sitting still and not being lubed. If the car was started and driven a couple of miles a year, around a driveway, I can see the lube being spread around, but not enough to heat and displace water and moisture. Anyone have specific experience with this?
All in all, still a time capsule piece, I'm just saying I wouldn't want it to drive. May be a good pedestal piece for the right person. Call the Classic Center in Irvine, they may know a buyer who is looking for just such a car.
