Craigslist ad located in Jackson, Michigan. Found it on Toledo craigslist. No, I still can't figure out how to paste the web site even after members told me how, I blew it!!!
Car definitely needs work. There are quite a few photos of the condition. Asking price for this car in its present condition can by you two or three of the same year. They are asking $35,000. Guess it only cost what you want to pay.

1956 Desoto Pacesetter Convertible - $35000 (Quincy, Mich)
Car is a barn find rare Indianapolis Pacesetter convertible, one of about 400 built. When found it had rust in frame and floors. It has had a California rust free, sandblasted and DP90 primed frame installed. The frame has the original convertible X member welded in and it came with a rust free trunk floor and rear panel. There is a set of fabricated trunk floor extensions included. I have located a roll of NOS fabric for the interior and a set of restored original hubcaps. Car is complete and appears to be missing nothing.I am working on getting the title. It needs floors, rockers and total restoration. --- Price $35,000 or best offer. email or leave message at (517) 869-2651. --- Mike

Thanks Mark. One day I will have it figured out and other members won't have to post the ads I find.
Am I wrong or is it priced a little high even for its condition? I know that a car is priced at what someone is willing to pay.

$35K for that rust bucket? I wouldn't live long enough to be able to restore it. It would be better served as a $1500.00 parts car!
