Starts up better than a new car!
The original speedometer had close to 47,000 miles on it, but I have no proof of that being accurate. There was no speedometer cable on it when I originally got the car.

The transmission that is in it was supposed to be a 5 Speed T5, After believing that fith gear was just messed up I took it to a specialist and we discovered that we were dealing with a rare transmission that the spot where the fith gear went was actually blocked off. So it technically has a 4 speed in it (very weird case), but I am including another more modern t-5 transmission with custom made ears/brackets to fit the t-5 to Flathead bell housing. You will never find this anywhere else. Trust Me!
The car is down to bare metal. I am including a special spray/oil that is for bare metal called "Gibbs Oil" that will stop it from rusting. I have not applied this yet in case the new owner decides to paint it or just give it a clear coat.
The car's windows are mostly cracked. I had not changed them because I was going more for the rat rod look and I feel it gave it character. You can find the full set on Ebay for $600. The only one that costs more is the rear glass, but that one is in perfect shape.
IMPORTANT! The car needs a new steering box which you can find online for $200 or less. I hosnetly just do not want to put anymore work into it. This is why the tires only have 8 minutes of drive time on them. The steering box is the original and is just too wornout. You can't go over 20 MPH without going all over the place and it being way too hard to control.At least for me.
I also have 90% of the body trim which will be included.
