Found on Craigslist:
Not many details in the ad. Photos, limited as they are, suggest the car is a solid original and not a rust bucket. As always with Craigslist, approach with caution.

Car looks pretty good to me. Can't say I love the color though - the yellow is cool but that green interior is not my cup of tea along with the yellow.

I remember Dad had a Fireflite 4 door sedan he got for stock when he had his dealership that color combination and the guy who bought it made dad have it painted gun metal gray before he'd buy it. That was even worse but as they say, there's a butt for every seat.

I tried to buy that car many years ago from the previous owner, who THEN thought it was worth way too much. The guy selling it now thinks the sheet metal and frame are solid gold. Yes, would be a nice car, but way overpriced. But, if you have the money and want the car...
