This 1973 Ford RPO83 hardtop is coming up for auction through Grays, and would be ideal for someone looking for a project.

The car appears complete and in fair shape, though it's taken a hit on the driver-side rear quarter. A spare panel comes with the car.

All up it looks like a solid basis for a resto and the value of this model should make this a viable project. 

RPO83s were quietly slipped on the market as a way for Ford to use the high-performance gear left over from the canned Phase IV project. See our hardtop and sedan buyer guide here. (Note that the prices will have risen since it was published.) 

The auction runs August 26-31 – see the lot here.
