This is in Hemmings:
For the money, I think it should be a lot nicer.
I'd prefer to save $3K and buy this:
1965 Chrysler 300

I'll go with the Chrysler too. The MB makes me think I'm watching a Bridget Bardot movie - where's the Eiffel Tower in that pix?, but then the Chrysler could be in any of a number of mid 60's TV shows. Of course the mid 60's was just an era of nice looking vehicles, including imports.

That Ponton really needs to be pristine for that kind of money - and it is not. I am not sure the interior is original Tex, but that's no matter - 19K for a 4cyl Ponton is pretty wacky, especially in the US. He's maybe 100% overpriced, that's all. For anything close to his price, I would want correct tires and a cleaned up interior at the very least.

The problem is if you get rid of it, it's gone forever. It's not like you can just go pick another up easily. As long as you have the means I say keep it and just enjoy it when you can.
I thought I would see more classics while in Seattle, the Pacific NW is usually great for those but nothing really noteworthy except a late 80's Vovlo 740, which really isn't that noteworthy.

That is a good point - once it's gone, it's gone. Unless you can talk the buyer into selling it back, you might have to work hard to find another.
Weather lately is miserable, that keeps some of the older stuff inside.

I have a buddy in SW PA who has a "legacy" (original) Power Wagon--not a crew cab, though. It's a '47. They built that body from '39 to '68!!!!

Let me know when you start seeing 'those' Legacys at cruise-ins or at B-J auctions!
