Vehicle Description

SALE PENDING***Marina Blue with white leather seats, a white headliner, and black carpeting. The mileage shows 89,407, which we believed was true when we bought it, but we now believe it is 189,407. We had our share of challenges with this car in the past, but I wouldn't hesitate to drive it cross-country today. The previous owner had replaced: Door, Roof rail, and Quarter window weatherstripping Steering stabilizer bar Rear air shocks (*see note below) Exhaust system *The level ride compressor had been converted to an electric one placed in the trunk, and new rear air shocks have been installed. However, we were told that the guys who installed it didn't really understand it so it never worked properly. So, later it was bypassed and a manual fill stem was mounted under the rear bumper. It is still there but it is difficult to use. Sometimes you can wiggle it the right way to get air to go in, but it's tough. On the way home to Wisconsin the water pump blew. We had to have it towed back our mechanic and he did the following: Replaced water pump, thermostat, and radiator hoses Full service oil change Performed a full inspection and gave it a thumbs up After this, the car drove wonderfully, with no issues. Then when bringing it home from a car show in September, I couldn't keep it running. A local mechanic took it the next day and here is what he replaced: Ignition coil, Points, Condenser Replacing these items did not seem to make a difference. After a day or 2 of playing with it, he had it running well enough to drop it off. Seemed fine when it was sitting there idling. Then we went to move it after he left, the same thing was happening. A local old timer and good friend starting looking it over. After several months of not being able to get it running right, he replaced: Plugs Wires Distributor cap Rotor Ignition coil (again) Vacuum advance Gas filter Timing chain Valley cover gasket Intake manifold gasket Carburetor (purchased an original rebuilt) After all of this, it still wasn't running right. He did a compression test on the engine to see if the issue was deeper, and it came out great. He also bypassed almost everything non-essential on the vacuum system to see if that helped. It did help a little, but this clearly wasn't the issue. Note: Although this car is almost fully loaded, there is currently no vacuum to most of the accessories on this car, so they are in-op (power windows, power seat, and wipers are working fine). Someone with knowledge of these vacuum systems will need to go back in and give this girl some attention. In his opinion, the only thing left to do was to check and see if any of the replaced parts were faulty. Thankfully, he started with the the condenser. And that it. The new condenser that the first mechanic put on must have been faulty. Then just a little tweaking to the carburetor and she purred like a kitten! She fires up every time after pumping it a few times, accelerates smoothly and has good power, it steers very nicely and the front end is solid & straight, it brakes nice without pulling or grinding (front disc brakes), and is happy as can be at any speed. There are a lot of photos to represent this car as accurately as possible. It was repainted, although I don't know when. There is some cracking and a few bubbles and small rust spots. All chrome is in very nice condition. The vinyl top is quite nice, but you can see a few rust bubbles under it. The seats have wear (driver's seat being the worst, with some ripped seams). The door panels have zero cracks. The dash is excellent and the carpet and floor mats are, too. There is discoloring around the edges of the headliner, but there are no tears/holes. There is no odor in the interior, and no evidence of mice or mold. After we purchased the car, we noticed that there has been some frame repair done. It appears to have been professionally done and after inspection, our mechanic feels there is nothing to be c
