Up for sale is a cool project car for someone. I bought this a while ago and have not had the time to devote to it that it needs. My loss is your gain, here is a summary of what I've done. I replaced the gas tank since theprevious one was sittingfor a while and Ididn't want any sediment in the engine. So I replaced the gas tank and some of the lines. I had thecarburetor professionally rebuilt and serviced. I also had the air conditioning checked for leaks and serviced and oiled. Once I had this work done I drove it briefly and transmission shifted excellent, drove good and the air conditioning was even cold!
Interior:Door panels and rear seat are in nice shape. Frontdriver and passenger seat bases are ripped and will need upholstery work. Floors are solid however the floor mats and carpets could use a shampoo and cleaning. Headliner is in good shape. Radio is notthere but wiring is there. Some of thegauges work but not all, gasgauge does not work or speedometer.
Exterior:The body is in good shape. There is some minor rust spots but this is a better car than most. Paint is in good shape but it is not original and has been painted at some point.
Engine:Engine is strong and runs smooth once its fired up very powerful. However Irecommend that the car be towed because the idle needs to be adjusted so that when you put the car in drive or reverse the RPMsdon't go to low and stall out. One of the manifolds is leaking and will need to be re welded. Does not show any signs of oil burning even on cold start up.
Tires are like new but have some dry rot on them but not much to worry about.
This car will need to be towed, Iwouldn'trecommend driving it long distance. Bring a trailer or send a tow truck.
