Things you should know before you contact me: -The body is covered in Black Primer. There are rust spots on the vehicle. I have not bothered to fix these because frankly I am terrible at body work. I replaced the hood with a steel salvage hood that I found at a Junk yard.
The wiring harness is new, but "custom"... I bought a generic prebuilt harness for the rebuild.
Rear end sits low. I have never bothered to correct this because to me the vehicle handles better that way.
Mechanical speedometer is not hooked up--There is a dash mounted GPS enabled speedometer installed.
I added an electric Fuel Gauge, Tachometer, and Vacuum Gauge
Sending Unit is brand new! But it is the wrong length, and gives an empty indication even though there is +20plus gallons left in the tank.
**This was my first car. I bought it in 2009 from an estate sale in Kaneohe, HI. I brought it to Charleston circa 2012 (still has the Hawaii Safety Inspection Stickers). I tell you this to say that I know this car well, and can answer just about any question you might have about it. It's loud; its fast; exactly what you expect.
