Was formerly raced in SCCA autocross events
Last licensed in 1969. I have the title in my name. but never had it licensed. I bought it in 1991 (it had been sitting in a garage since 1969) with the intention of racing it. I never got around to using it so it has sat in storage for a total of 47 years.
It has been highly modified and since it has sat for the past forty-seven years it will need lots of TLC. Does not currently run.
There is rust-through visible in the floor board on the right (passenger) side and in the battery box.
The carburetors are not original. they are Webers.
I've been told that it is missing the fuel pump. the brake/clutch master cylinder. the heater. the windshield wiper motor. and who knows what else.
The hood (bonnet?) hinges are missing and someone modified the hood so it swings upward from the front.

I will try to answer any questions you have regarding this car
