A real barn find here. Last driven 43 years ago in 1973 and then parked in a garage in Langhorne PA until 10 years ago.

I have the title in hand.
There are extra NOS parts with the car + a Tire & extra front bumper.
A full set of original spoke wheel w/light surface rust.
The only damage is the tailgate which was struck by a truck driven through the garage door and the tailgate was down at the time. And the windshield is cracked.Al the other glass is in great shape. The seats are in good shape. There is a hole in the headliner behind the sun visor on the right side. When found it had been sitting for 33+ years and all tires were flat. I hooked up my compressor and the tires pumped right up. Currently holding the same air I put in 10 years ago. I trailered it to where it sits now. It's only been outside for the last 4 years.
I've been asked "does it run?" After not running for 43+ years I'm not willing to jump it and risk scoring the cylinders. It's dry as a bone. Your welcome to inspect it inside and out if you like and even turn the engine with a breaker bar. I fully expect a diligent buyer for this rare buggy. Delivery is optional via open or closed trailer.
