    A/C is really rare, but a LeSabre 4-dr sedan again.
    Let's get realistic : $1750.

    The A/C is aftermarket, don't see the vents in that lousy interior shot. Good chance this thing is pretty rusty being that it has been outstanding in it's field for years. An Electra or even a loaded up Invicta, - maybe...that might have been a little more interesting, but not sure if even they would have been worth a look. And certainly not at $7500 US. $1500 maybe...

    Not going to be able to see them at that angle/darkness. But I don't see any sort of under-dash unit (there's no vents otherwise), and the underhood set-up is correct for factory- that's a Harrison compressor and the heater box is definitely different than non-A/C cars.

    I'd consider picking up the A/C dash parts for my car, tho I'd probably go with a behind-dash Vintage Air unit and just use the factory vents because they're such amazing bits of engineering. But they'd have to be reasonably priced...

    It’s a really rainy climate there too! I would expect the interior to be mouldy.

    He’s asking $7500 to eliminate the low ballers. You know, the ones who’d offer him what the car is actually worth. He might be one of those “I know what I’ve got...” people, or has just watched a repeat of B-J on Motor Trend TV and thinks he’s sitting on a gold mine. Just once, I’d love to see a truly honest ad for this car, like “I left this car in a field because it stopped running back in the Johnson administration. I thought I’d see what I can get out of it before it became one with the earth again. The mice come free, as does mold, rust, mildew and hantavirus. The selling price was determined by my bar tab down at Pete’s Tavern.”
