Completed rebuilding starting in 2001 from ground up. taking approximately 3 1/2 yrs to complete. Since putting on road I would estimate it was driven less than 100 mi per year during spring. summer and fall. Has been kept in garage 9 months of the year with the rest off the time stored with car cover under canopy. Following items were installed during restoration:
New pistons. bearings. 1/4 race cam. Peco exhaust
Block bored out 30 over
Oil pump. timing gear. water pump. cyl head. distributor. coil. clutch. radiator. electric cooling fan. Carter fuel pump.
Rebuilt shocks. bushings. tie rod ends. coil springs. leaf springs
Master cylinder. front brake rotors. rebuilt calipers
New wiring harness
New sills. floorpans. windshield. dash face. steering wheel. full interior kit. AM/FM radio with CD player. Minilite style wheels with Michelin X metric tires. new convertible top
Note: Speedometer/odometer not operating because of pinion gear inside transmission housing. Tachometer needs a tap on the glass to get it going. Paint in good condition with some flaws. area in front of windshield seal on driver's side shows some cracking and lifting of paint. see photograph.



Buyer responsible for pickup or arrangements for shipping. Car is listed on several other sites so I reserve right to end listing if it sells.
