Mechanicals: The car has had much work done and dollars spent and she is ready for the open road. She runs and drives great and the engine compartment is very original as seen in the photos. The following items have been done in the past few months. New points. new plugs. new ignition wires. new distributor cap. new rotor button. new air filters. new fuel filter. new fuel pump. nbsp;oil changed. nbsp;new fan belt. new rear brake shoes. new front brake hose. new thermostat. radiator reconditioned. new radiator cap & coolant. new battery. new intake manifold gasket. new exhaust manifold gasket. new heater control valve and the gas tank cleaned cleaned. Also. nearly every single coolant / vacuum hose and clamp has been replaced as well as the carburetors being adjusted and balanced. The car starts right up with no smoke. ticks or shacking about. The car holds about 60 lbs. oil pressure at warm idle ( see photo of the gauges ). engine is tight and I have never seen a single fluid drop under the car during my ownership. I would have no issue driving the car any distance at this time. Electrical's: Many hours and dollars where spent on going through this area and here is what is working at this time: headlights ( high & low beam ). wipers. front & rear turn signals. front & rear running lights. brake lights. nbsp;backup lights. license plate lights. heater / defrost fan. interior courtesy light. nbsp;dash gauge lights and the radio. The only thing I have not gotten around to is the horn. Interior: Is in very. very nice condition as seen in the photos and has a new complete carpet kit installed along with new under dash / side Kidney panels ( made in England ). new door seals and a new Walnut TR-6 logo gear shift knob. Gauges: The car has all correct "Smith" gauges and all appear to be in proper working order at this time ( see photo ). Exterior: The car looks great and I just had a mobile detail truck come out and hand wash and then wax the car. The paint shines great and is smooth to the touch with no gritty feel. The soft top is serviceable ( will keep you dry for the most part ) but I was planning to replace it so the car comes with a NEW in the box soft top. I just painted the wheels in correct "Moss" silver. installed correct mat black wheel centers and installed new TR-6 wheel center decals. The tires are all matching Goodyear " Invicta GS " radials that have good tread life remaining. The sills. rockers. wheel arches and dog legs look to be rust free and I find no evidence of any accident damage on the car. Underbody: This area looks very good given the cars age and the frame looks very good as well. I see no evidence of repairs on the underbody of the car. Trunk: The truck is rock solid ( see photos )and comes with a spare tire and jack. Sorry. no top cover or tonneau cover. Car does come with a near new car cover and stowage bag. Buy It Now: The car is priced well below it's true value and while I'm open to offers please don't waste your time with silly low ball offers ( we all know what the car is worth ). The offers would need to be above the starting price or current bid price on the car.
