Guy me and my grandpa know bought a 55 about 6 months - year ago. He payed 14,000 for it, and it still needed work. It was compeletly together, and new paint and all...but after he got it, he found a few "quick repairs" in the car. So if you can get it for 3k, or 6k for that matter...probally be worth it.
