This Spirit is a really unique and original car. I bought it off the western slope of Colorado in 2017, which is high elevation, dry, and salt free. You will not find a more rust free original Spirit... I've taken some pictures underneath to show that. I've had a few Spirits where the inner rocker panels were rusted... there's no rust on this car anywhere. The dealer emblem fell off, but I have it. It was sold at Canyon Motor Car Company in Montrose Colorado.
When I bought it the car had been sitting a bit, so I dropped the tank, cleaned it, and rebuilt the carb. Runs/drives great now with no known issues. All glass is good too. It's the 4 cylinder engine with an auto transmission. Runs good, shifts good, tires are good, and has about 93,000 miles showing. I'd intended to do the V8 swap for a 360, but the current original engine runs awesome... so I wasn't really in a hurry.
As pictured, sale includes 1. AMC small-body V8 crossmember and plates, and 2. correct color Spirit center console.
I'm pretty sure I'm going to regret selling this car.... It's a rare and really unique Spirit. You can tell the car is a western car, looking at the original paint and the underside.
The car is located in Fredonia WI, about 30 minutes north of Milwaukee. PLEASE do not bid unless you intend to buy. I'd be happy to work with your shipper if you're not local. Thank you!
