I've owned this car since 12/14/1993 and have driven it very little. In fall of 2009 I began a frame-off restoration for reasons unknown. Frame. Tub and misc parts was bead‐blasted to bare surface. No rust was found and no rust exist now. Garage kept and covered most of the time. The frame was powder coated as well as tub most suspension parts. Due to a surprise divorce not very long after restoration was started and the cost of divorce attorneys. I was forced to do a speedy reassembly.  I was also forced to do it on a much tighter budget. It still needs tweaking in areas but nothing I consider major. Seats I recovered myself… poorly I may add as well as the paint.  It is apparent that I don't know how to paint. Still not bad to look at from 20 feet. It is the original color. The wood on the dash was custom made and has bubbled in some areas. The engine has not been opened and/or inspected as it was running strong before and after reinstallation. Same for transmission and differential. Bearings. u‐joints and the like was however replaced or repacked.  From my recollection (and receipts somewhere). the following was replaced during the process
1) Starter2) Water Pump3) Gas Tank4) Muffler (and a new spare muffler) Tail pipe up to header needs to be fitted professionally5) Chrome Windshield Header (and a new spare)6) Upgraded Cloth Convertible Top that cost a small fortunate (w/ zippered window)7) Clutch. PP & TO Bearing8) All brake & clutch hydraulic system components including shoes/pads9) All body rubber mounts are polypropylene10) All Front & Rear suspension bushings. tie‐rod ends. shocks and related11) A wallet load of accessories. trim pieces. mounding's. weather‐stripping. ect. 12) Everything else was reworked. cleaned and/or painted
From my recollection of needed workBetter paint job. real seat covers and I would recommend the foam as well. Complete the exhaustsystem that was just slipped together temporarily. Tires have less than 500 miles but over 10 years old. Comes with after‐market hard top and variety of new/used parts. More pics available and all questionswill be answered to the best of my ability. Car has been sitting again for the past 6 years.
