It's definitely a good looking car. I wouldn't daily drive it but if you have another car, go for it.

Up to you, really. The 06 is depreciating in value, the '68 is appreciating in value. I know what I'd do.

I totally disagree. I'd drive her daily from mid March until the snow flies up here in Minnesota. Oh, and I'd do the trade in a heartbeat lol.

Body looks nice. Headliner and door/window seals are showing their age.
15-inch wheels aren't original, nor is the engine. Plus there's the list of things on the site that don't work. I think I'm seeing what could be a pretty sizeable dent on top of the drivers side wheel house in the trunk.
I'd be concerned about the non-original engine and the 2bbl and would want to positively ID what it is first.
Generally, I'd advise a very close and thorough inspection of everything before making a decision. It could be a nice car, and it could be a "beater" that's just wearing a nice-looking paint job.

Bear, I have the same concerns and wouldn't make the trade. Of course, if all of those things were 'correct', the price of the 68 would be way higher and nowhere near the ballpark of an 06 in trade.

I would only do the trade after a visual inspection of the car and all electricals are working. Another drawback is the manual brakes.
My guess would be the seller would also want cash in addition to your '06.
