Description

Lot #130 - I have owned this car since 1972 and have totally disassembled this car over the last three years. I repainted the whole body, the whole interior, the trunk interior, and under the hood. I also flipped the body over and completely redid the underside. At this point the body is in better shape than brand new condition. During this three year process I had the motor completely rebuilt, bought a rebuilt transmission from England. Other essential replacements have been the clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing as well as the U joints in the driveshaft. The carbureators, all tune up parts, fuel pump, and radiator are new. The starter and generator were rebuilt. The wiring harness is new inside and out. The distributor and updated ignition system are new. All belts and hoses are new. The engine was painted with the original color. All engine stickers and emblems are new originals. All interior is new. All trunk carpet is new and all bright work is new. The wire wheels, brakes and brake lines are all new. The tires are new. All the wheel bearings are new. This car runs perfect, looks perfect, and is perfect. This is a very rare car and probably the nicest one in the world.
