Probably help to know EAXCTLY what you're lookin for.

For example:

(1) Is it for a street resto build ?

(2) Is it to build a modified street/strip car ?

(3) Need body work already done ?

(4) Must it be rust free ?

(5), If not, how much rust can you live with ?

(6) Are you willing to buy a running car, in order to get the body you want ? The reason I ask this is because I've seen some pretty decent lookin bodies, with cheap 350 sbc crate engines, for a reasonable price.

IMO, finding a really nice, rust free '68 Bird body, for $10k or under, is unlikely, nowadays. But, stranger things have happened.

Here's what appears to be a former race Bird. Might work for a modified street/strip project, but will take lots of work & $$$$$.

https://classics.autotrader.com/clas...bird/100863687

Don't have a clue where the car is located, if it's still for sale, or what shape it's in. If it's still for sale, it may be in bad shape, cause it's been listed for quite a while.

If you can stand a '67, here's a driver for $13k.

This ad is probably bogus, or car is either sold or doesn't exist, since price is too low for described '68 Bird.

Ok it must be rust free or very little. 350 car is fine with or without motor is fine also. Would like no a/c but I will consider all. Thanks

Rear body panel looks funky but it is in your price range and not too far away for you to pick up - https://buffalo.craigslist.org/pts/d...583841859.html

Wow $7000 for that one seems a little high the chances of warped panels is pretty high. And it looks to be a 350 car.

How about a '67?
I like this one...Red on Red 400 supposedly. Not much detail at all as far as the missing parts but looks solid
