I have had the vehicle for about 15 years. The previous owner bought the car in 1994 was restoring it until I purchased it in July of 1998.  Prior to the that the car had been raced and was not registered for street use. It still has the following racing features: high lift cams; 4-leaf rear sprigs; exhaust header; panhard rod and electric fuel pump.  It corners like it's on rails.  This is great daily driver.  There is no roof canvas but I do have the roof rails. There is a tonneau and side curtains. A new ribcage 4 speed gear box has just been installed. The car still has it's original drum brakes. the master brake cylinder was replaced last year.  The carbs are fitted with trumpets but I have the original filters.  The mag wheels have 175/70R/13 tyres that are about three years old. The listed 5K milage is approximate on the rebuilt engine.
Everything works although the sprayer for the wipers is not installed. I have the parts.  The fuel gauge works but only when it feels like it. I have replaced the gauge and the float but there is a gremlin somewhere that eludes me (I have a 2gal. fuel can I am happy to include).  
All of the books. tools and bits shown are included in the price. I have all of my bills and most of the bills from the previous owner. who did a full body-off restoration.
The car can be picked up from me. Payment by cash or certified cheque. deposit required to hold the vehicle.
