A beautifully restored, absolutely rust free example, just acquired from a friend in Kansas.
As the photos show, rust free/damage free floors, chassis, sills, etc. Excellent body with beautiful red paint, all new chrome, new top, currently with new Minilite style alloy wheels with new 175/65 radials (but easily converted to center lock wire wheels), beautiful detailing throughout. Especially in the engine bay.
Rebuilt engine and transmission, brakes done, perfect wiring and electrics, oil cooler, the general 'look' of the engine bay is literally 'as new.' Very impressive as is the rest of the car. A perfect car for general use, occasional shows, AND we can fit a powerful supplemental heater and a hardtop for cold weather use.
And the photos tell the rest.........
