Partially restored, numbers matchingdaily driver.Inland FL car withlittle rust. Runs drives great! Clean, tight, peppy! New stuff explained and listed below:
I'm the third owner and I know its history. I bought it from my orchestra instructor who had it since the late 80s. It was garage kept until 2013, I picked it up in 2015 and fixed it up. Here's what I did to it:
Rebuilt engine and made it peppy. I can explain more in detail if you need, but it's done right, it's tight, and fun to drive with many performance mods and parts. Rebuilt tranny, but I couldn't find a new 2nd gear bronze spray, so I took 1mm off the synchro and it works ok but if you grab second hard, you'll feel the gearstruggles to catch up. My normal driving (which is pretty performance oriented) works fine. New driveshaft, brakes (MC, rebuilt calipers, hoses etc etc.), tubeless radials, convertible top with seals and wood strip and trim (has the "good" top framework, Pertronix flamethrower, rebuilt fuel pump, all trimmings on engine (belts hoses water pump secondary ignition etc etc...), cored and rebuilt original radiator, new battery, new clutch (quickand nice), new exhaust (header back, nice mild, throaty sound under hard acceleration but quiet all other times). Interior is mostly new: fresh carpet, an extra set of mats, newly recovered seats with new headrests, new packing strips and good sliders on good floor. All glass is good. Vent windows work fine. Door glass cranks up and down fine. The little rubber piece is missing from the top of the passenger side door but I may have it. Suspension and components are tight with no issues. Everything works. Hot heat, cable for heater valve works fine with new heater valve. Blower motor works fine, wipers work fine, nice headlights, all lights work etc. No leaks out of this car either.
Car needs nothing to be daily driven,runs/stops fantastic. It suppose it could use a few little minor things as most old cars could. All there, mostly all original with original engine and tranny and components. Has all 5 tires, has original jack andbag with tools, and I have a box of some spares with some original documents if you like and a manual and shop manual etc.
I don't want to sell it as I really lovedaily driving the car, but I'm downsizing everything and may be moving out of the country for new adventures. So I'm not in a hurry, and I'd like it to go to an appreciative home where someone will enjoy it as much as I have.
It was repainted in the early 80s, and over the years has some surface rust coming up on some of the seams, but I've sealed them so as not to spread, but nothing major. The car has some minor dings here and there from being driven. No accidents, and no big body repairs. Albeit not perfect, but it's a very straight and clean body for it's age, and has been kept well.
I added a waterproof MP3 bluetooth stealth stereo that's pretty cool and mostly hidden, as I love my music and news.
More pictures, videos, and information upon request. I drive the car back and forth to Tampa and Orlando so may be available to show it "en route" It gets nearly threefold themileage than my truck!
