Rear drum brakes locked and a major issue to get removed.
At least 2 owners without registrations, so getting title was a bear.
Bought as a father son bondo (bonding) project. Any help would be appreciated since we are novices.
Just getting really going spring 2012
We discovered right front fender replaced with earlier model
Single carb, American L sided steering
Distributer cap had been off for years and filled with dust.
The original engine blew and took a donor 1500 and rebuilt that engine and placed inside this shell. Tinkered with is for a while but never could get it to purr again. The body is in pretty decent shape save one fender with piece cut out of it that needs to be replaced. The electrical is pretty crap(the owner before me messed with it and its been a mess to try to fix). Probably around 30-50 miles on rebuilt engine
Body is in good shape, minus that one side panel(see picture)
Weber carb and new intake and exhaust manifold.
Modified it to be a push button start.
Engine was rebuilt
New dual gauge
Cherry bomb turbo exhaust (I bought it for this car and I'm just selling it with it)
Dash with new cover over cracks
Original car jack
Frame for convertible top.
have front bumper.
would make a great parts car or if you want to dig into and fix the body and electrical.
