I bought this car 12 years ago from a good friend of mine in Sacramento who was meticulous about his personal resoration projects. He built this for his wife to drive. From what I understand, the car spent it's entire life in California until I had it shipped to me in Chicago. Since then, I've always kept it garaged and covered and only drove it on dry days. It's only even seen rain twice in the past decade. I've serviced it regularly since then. I love driving the car, but am moving back into the city and won't have room for three cars and a motorcycle. I'd love to see her go to a good home.
I didn't do the restoration and don't know all of the technical details, but I have a full ring binder full of receipts dating back to 1983 and the original owner all the way through the restoration details. I do know that during the resoration, my frend replaced the engine with a fully rebuilt 1975 engine which he said was more powerful and reliable. My mechanics at Midwest Performance in Chicago have commented that the rebuild was thoughtfully done right. It runs like a champ and always has. the rebuilt engine and transmission only has around 30k miles on it, while the odometer reads 244,143 as of the time of this ad. He replaced all of the interior -- seats, and carpet. Not sure about the dash, but it's still in excellent condition. The only interior flaw is one of the vents on the dealer-installed air conditioning unit is broken. I do still have the grates in case you want to get it fabricated. The targa top is in good condition, though some of the vinyl around the trim has cracked off -- you can see it on the photos.
The photos taken inside the garage were when I had it serviced at Midwest Performance, so the color looks a bit different than the outdoor photos.
This is a car that's meant to be driven and enjoyed. Contact me if you have any questions and I'll answer them the best I can.
