     This car belongs to my daughter and I am selling it for her.   She got this for her sweet 16 birthday and enjoyed it for several years.   When she went of to college she lost interest and wanted a new car.   

This car has never to our knowledge been in an accident. nbsp; there is no rust it is a desert car and we have owned it for 12 years.    The engine was rebuilt around 2008-9 and it was driven about 4-6 thousand miles after the rebuild.   My daughter was the driver and it was her 16th birthday gift.   When she went to college it was parked and has not been driven for about 5 years.   The engine was run a few times but thats it.    Interior upholstery is deteriorated. Tires were new about 6-7 years ago but need replacing. We will be airing up tires and cleaning this weekend and will post new pics as soon as we move it.  

Ask all questions you like and I will answer them asap.   This car will only auction one time and then we will be placing it with local vintage car seller.   We have sold house so it must be removed from lot before end of month.

We will assist with shipping if you want to arrange the pick up.   For shipping car is at 89129 nv.

We will only accept Next day delivery of Cashiers Check on Chase bank so it can be verified. nbsp; once verified we will send title to you.   No Paypal and if you are picking car up we will only accept cash or wait for
Cashiers Check to clear bank.

An immediate nonrefundable deposit of $500 due at end of auction if you win .

If you have any questions please ask.   Again!   Car will only be offered one time for auction so jump in if you want it.
Watch for new pics and info this weekend as soon as we get it cleaned up a bit.

True miles is unknown.

Thanks. nbsp; Dave

On May-16-17 at 18:39:26 PDT. seller added the following information:

UPDATE!!!   We pulled up the old carpet and removed seat and checked all floor pans and hidden areas looking for damage and rust.   We are proud to say we found nothing but a little oxidation and 1 small. nbsp; about 3/4" long puncture in floor beside front seat. nbsp; It is not a rust hole but looks like something punctured the side edge floor area but it is only a guess what it might have been.   It is very small and hard with not rust so it is just a small bend it back and weld over to fix.    All floor boards look good and pass the tapping test and are very hard.   Front gas tank area solid as a rock and if there is any rust it is only oxidation because everything we could see and touch is solid.    The window frames are all there behind back seat but windows have deteriorated and need soda blasting. paint and recovering.   Pretty much everything is there including the jack and pins for hardtop as well other small parts.   If looking for a pretty solid 73 here it is.   Has the original wheels and hub caps and tires are deteriorating.
   Will try and get tires pumped up and move tomorrow. nbsp; we just need a long airline. nbsp; very looooong to pump them up.

If you have any questions.
