Top in great shape with no rips or cracks in clear windows. Back center window zips out. Wheels are 15 in 18Racing minilight replicas in 15x7 with 195/50/15 tires that set this car off and take it from scrawny to brawny. Engine upgrades should bring this motor to around 110-115 horse power. Stock was around 80. This car has air shocks in the rear to level. The rear has a rebuilt transverse spring with new Teflon spacers. This car does not have the typical Spitfire sag on the left side that most of them do. It sits square. rides and drives great and handles like its on rails. Car comes with Tonneau cover. nbsp;boot. and all original smog pump. and stock parts removed for performance parts. What may or may not be done before sale: Doors need adjusting to close properly. Rear differential seals need replaced and I have them and may get them in before the sale. No promises. Like I stated earlier. need very little tweeking. Shows great. runs great. and drives great. Turns heads and thumbs up at the cruise-ins and on the street. A fun car.
