(3) Convert Wipers from Vacuum to Electric.
(4) Clean up and double check the wiring from the Generator to Alternator Swap
(5) Replace window felts
(6) Install Lokar Floor Shifter, I have the shifter and it comes with the car.
Unfortunately my current schedule and list of other projects to work on has left me with no time to finish up the last few small items so my loss is your gain.
So I have Reduced the price and it is priced to sell. Last chance to make this classic yours at a very reasonable price. Take this car home and save me some money and grief with the wife. Because if it does not sell at this price I am not going to give it away so I will open up the wallet and send it out for Air Ride and to have the last few things finished up and my wife will just hate that !! So Bring on those Offers !!!
