Top down C-Code Comet with 289,power steering and 4-speed.Runs good. Engine is 289 4V Holley with 4-speed toploader and Hurst shifter. Originally C-Code 289 2V with C4 automatic, ower steering and factory AM radio. Has an aluminum Edelbrock intake, obra valve covers, ood dual exhaust, ood headers, arge 1-inchfront sway bar, -inch rear and nice interior. Top works as does lights, ipers,blinkersand heater fan. Motor sounds beautiful with good oil pressure and no smoke. Barn fresh with solid, traight body. This car was tastefully restored and put away for years. I flushed the old gas and drove this car today. All gears engaged smoothly. New ignition switch and key cylinder. Good clutch but clutch pedal sticks down slightly and so does the throttle so needs some love but solid car with much of the hard work done. Brakes are a little locked up (needs new wheel cylinders) from sitting, ut drivable to load on trailer. Steering feels good and car steers straight. Nice original glass. Doors close good. Body looks real good and straight except minor rust driver rear quarter (see video) and dent on top of driver front fender (see video). Undercarriage looks rust free (see video). Cowl leaks some water. Everything works except AM radio and horn. Passenger door panel sticks when you open that door. Passenger door window stuck in up position and needs oil. Clean factory apron VIN stamp and sweet original driver door data tag. This is a nice, olidand unique hotrod convertible that needs cleaning, rake workand love. Ready for new owner and fun. Sold "as is". Call for more info Rick (301) 779-0114.
