Technical specifications, photos and description:
I purchased this car last summer from my 82 year old neighbor. who bought it new in 1966. While the speedometer says it has 25k miles. he states that the original mileage is around 45k. as the speedo was broken for some time.
Initially. this was his only car. It sat outside as he lived in a condo in Montreal. It has seen its share of winters. At some point. he stopped driving the car. and stored it in his barn. When he sold the farm. the car sat in the garage under his house.
The car is completely original. including engine. chassis. and gearbox. (matching numbers) The car was repainted (original BRG color) about 10 or 15 years ago. While the paint is in good shape. the prep work left a bit to be desired. as if you look closely sanding marks can be seen in some areas. Additionally. the rockers have been fiberglassed. I'm assuming because of rust. The work looks wonderful though. and unless you looked underneath and saw some mat overlapping. you'd never know. The floors are solid as is the spare wheel well. As the pictures show. the body is straight as an arrow. The only visible rust is on the inner panel under the air cleaner.
I got it running when I got it home. It has great oil pressure (approx 40lbs hot idle). The carbs need to be rebuilt. It spits and carries on. then comes to life. I installed a Pertronix ignition. A new fuel tank was installed about 5 years ago. Additionally I purchased a new water pump (installed). a 3 row Aluminum radiator. and 8 blade electric fan. and all new hoses as a precaution. (they have yet to be installed) The heater assembly is rusted on the bottom and was removed. but is included as is the original radiator and fan.
Brakes and clutch work. though the brakes take an extra pump to bring the pedal to the top. Transmission shifts fine.
The interior is completely original and is in rough condition. Included in the sale is a brand new OSJI complete biscuit interior kit. (Major Kit) including new seat cushions. dash cover and headliner. It is the most complete kit they offer.
To the best of my knowledge the car is complete with the exception of the chrome that goes on either side of the windshield. Currently the car is as shown with the bonnet off and the radiator out. which is how it is being sold.
I have not titled the car in my name. My neighbor is Canadian. and that's where the car was stored. I imported the car to the US and have the proper documents in hand. Theoretically. you could be the second owner. I have many original documents for the car. including the service coupon book!
This car is a good candidate for a fun driver. or has great bones for restoration. I thought I had the time to do this car. but found that I do not.
