This car features a number of high point considerations, all of the
brass is intact and beautifully prepared-restored. It has both top
and windshield options, the wheels just finished complete
restoration, painting and striping. They run very true and
smoothly. From what we were told the car was restored in the early
1970s' and it appears the original was in very good condition and
relatively rust free, by all accounts and appearances. We were told
by the 1970's owner, family friend, that the car ran in the latter
1970's. When the owner past away in 1979, the car was placed in dry
storage by his widow until our acquisition in 2011. There should be
no reason that the car would not run? If-when our tech. gets the
car running we will increase the price to marker level in the mid
$30k range. We are at the final stage of our involvement and
interest in the car, we have other projects taking precedent for
Spring 2014 and need the space, hence a lower price for quick sale.
The engine turns freely and has excellent compression. It is all
very cleaned, well oiled, the oil pump works as it should (see pic.
with crankcase inspection cover removed). The car doesn't have the
original magneto or carb. they were replaced with a later model
impulse mag, which we recently had checked for operation. We are
replacing the carb. this month, and trying to make the spark hotter
with a coil and battery, to get it to fire. While it is important,
to some, that the car run it is not a critical issue and there are
people in the hobby that have much better resources and knowledge
of these older cars, which is another reason my Business Partner
decided to offer it for sale now rather than next Spring-Summer.
Please call us for more information.
