Body is straight, doors shut smooth & tight. Dash is uncut. Gauges are all intact. Speedometer makes a irritating clunking noise but Im certain someone with good eyesight could correct this. All gauges are functional. The battery is fairly new. The fuel pump gasket was also replaced 4 months ago. Lack of operation resulted in fuel leak.
I have owned this car for 6 years and driven no more than 50 miles due to health issues and losing driving priviledge. During period of my ownership , the radiator and carb has been rebuilt. I lowered the car by shortening shock springs. This allowed for better handeling and provided the look I wanted.
Paint has some odd scratches on hood, top and passenger rear quarter panel from what was described to me as an awning collapse in sudden windstorm. ( See last few pic's).
This car is reliable to start, runs strong and has no known mechanical issues. If you don't like attention, this car is not for you.
Previous 2 owners were also California residents. Documents/ repair records are consistent with odometer reading (mileage: 76,981)
It is my hope that enthusiasm of new owner will give this fine automobile the attention & care it deserves. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I will respond as soon as possible, usually in evening hours. Thank you and happy bidding!
