I'm in Edmonton. Grand Prairie is a long drive away, close to five hours one way. And I believe I am the most northern Alberta member. If it's in Edmonton, or close, I can do it. Grand Prairie would take some serious convincing.

He told me it's either the starter or the battery....I don't think this guy knows much about vehicles! He wants it out of the yard. It's registered through June 2020. He kind of inherited the car through a third party. Sounds like a lot of drama. He's going to send me some photos of some areas I asked for, so we'll see what happens.

If you get it shipped to Calgary there’s enough of us here to help with diagnosis and condition report but Grant is right its not at the end of the world but you can see it from there...

Thanks a lot....I've got to do some thinking on this one. It'll depend on the condition and price which is very reasonable but as I said I have to see some photos first. Thanks again!

"Inherited through a third party" sounds like trouble to me. Make sure he's got the title for it. It may be registered, but by the "third party".
Third party might have parked it there and this guy is sick of it!
Hate to see you get burned.

We don’t have a title system in Alberta a car can pass through a million hands between having registrered plates on it. We just have Bills of Sale so that may be a consideration.

I not even ask for BOS anymore when I buy a car , i just give the seller the money and later on when I need a registration I make my own BOS with my wife or money or son.

I bought a '77 coupe in St. Catherines Ontario....Had no problem getting over the Border! This could be a problem but I just have this Love affair with Certain Formal coupes....especially when it's a '74 Imperial! Must be some kind of disease!

As Graham aka dobalovr and Tobias have said, get it to Calgary and they'll look after you by checking it over.

I had the pleasure of meeting both of them whilst in Calgary a couple of years ago and nicer guys you couldn't meet. I look forward to returning one day as I loved Calgary- perfect weather around minus 16 C.

Next thing you know you'll be driving your car home in your new Ram truck and trailer, Graham will give you a good price.

Lol.

^^ Thanks to all! I called him again today....left message. He's supposed to send me photos, so we'll see. I might be taking a risk here but if it's as rust free as he says it is and the interior is good (needs cleaning) it might not be too bad! The funny thig is....per capita, I'd be willing to bet there are more 2 door Formals in Alberta (this is the 5th or 6th in the last 3 years) and to a lesser degree in the rest of Canada than the US! Maybe we have more demolition derbies too...LOL! Anyway, thanks to you guys for the assistance. BTW, the car is listed on Kijiji!
