" Happy 75th Birthday. time to sell all your cars . close the restoration shop. nbsp; and enjoy some track time while you can "
after many years of restoring old race cars. family thinks it's time to sell off all my accumulated stock of cars and parts.
So we have sold one of our shop buildings. nbsp; and are preparing to sell the main shop as well.
the car is for sale at the shop and elsewhere. nbsp;
the listing may be ended at any time if the LOW reserve has not been met
Here is a Sprite with the desirable chrome bumpers. that will make a decent driver for cruising and going to the 7-11 . Quickstop. etc
VIN HAN9L 68613 Motor # 12cc D H 8951
This was an older gentleman's ' Toy ' for a number of years. nbsp; and we acquired it after his death.
The car had not been run for some time. and had '0' compression in two cylinders. nbsp; so we pulled the head and found two valves would not close fully due to the carbon and Marvel oil mix. Since the head was off. and the cylinders etc looked good. nbsp; I sent the head to the machine shop for freshening. re-installed it with new gaskets. nbsp; and the compression was back to where it should be 120+ across all 4.
The motor runs good. but after 50 years. nbsp; a freshening of the bottom end would be a good plan. and should be done.
As I said . the car was his toy. nbsp; and it appears to have had some restoration work and paint several years ago. There is some welded metal repair work in the floors that is good. you can see just some surface rust in the interior pictures. There is some rust damage on the underside that was been treated and painted. unless a full restorations is being contemplated. nbsp; I would continue driving the car as it appears it was not repaired and has not worsened. Aftermarket rocker panels have been installed. The rear area near the trunk lid has a dent from stuff in his garage. nbsp; and can be popped out a bit. One taillight lens is with the car. the other is missing. There is a dime sized hole in the convertible top. The Interior shows pretty good. Tires are decent with a lot of tread. Wire wheels look ok.
He spent some money on his 'toy'. It was a nice Weber Conversion. nbsp; and a set of performance headers with nice sounding exhaust. not loud
As I said in the beginning. this can be a decent driver than can be fun to drive. nbsp; at a very cheap price.
and this car is offered as described and found . needing more TLC.
