This is a replica kit manufactured by Classic Roadsters of Fargo. ND. The car was assembled by a retired man in 1987. He died shortly after and the car was put in dry storage for 20+ years. I bought it from the second owner 3 years ago and have done extensive work to bring it back to life. Note: this history is second hand so I cannot verify it.

 

The car has a crate Ford 302 engine with a 4 speed transmission. It has a tubular frame with chassis components taken from a 1978 Mustang II. The front suspension has coilovers. The steering is power assisted Rack & pinion. The body is fiberglass gelcoat. The following is a partial list of work done since I purchased the car.

·       Complete rewiring using Painless harness with new fuse block.

·       Radiator removed and cleaned.

·       New (reman) steering rack.

·       New brake master cylinder w/ boost unit

·       New brake pads & shoes

·       Headers ceramic coated.

·       New ignition module and solenoid.

·       New heater core (damaged A/C was removed).

·       Handmaid walnut instrument panel with new switches and additional gauges.

·       New RetroSound Radio with Aux input.

·       New Flaming River steering column with Grant wheel.

·       Interior has been completely reupholstered.

·       New battery and spare tire.

·       New windshield (I cracked it when removing).

·       New rollbar. (Not cosmetic…. bolted to frame) 

The car will need new tires soon. It has a black convertible top that has some minor cosmetic issues but does not leak. The mileage was 2800 when I purchased the car but the odometer has become erratic recently so true mileage is not as shown. I only drive it occasionally so my best guess is around 5000.

Note: This car was re-titled in Florida as a 2010 because the previous Indiana title would not transfer into the Florida computer system.  

I strongly encourage an independent inspection and will deduct the cost from the winning bid.  Work progress and “before” pictures are available upon request.

I am advertising this car locally so I reserve the right to cancel the auction prior to its end date.

Why am I selling it?. had my fun…. bored……need a new project.  

$500 deposit within 48 and full payment in 7 days. Pick up and shipping is the responsibility of the buyer.

On May-30-13 at 03:45:21 PDT. seller added the following information:

CLARIFICATION ON TITLE: The car is titled as a 2010 ASTP (Florida desination for kits). The previous Indiana title would not transfer into the Florida computer system so the car was inspected and retitled. I thought listing it as a 2010 would be deceiving so I listed as a 1978 because the vin# for a 1987 would not fit the ebay format for cars built after 1981. .
