Needs; Front end rebuilt (new parts included but never installed), SS trim between front fenders and body replaced, missing logo above grille, rear main seal weeps, trans grinds going in to 2nd gear only, has low speed hesitation on acceleration.

Owner (my boss) has decided after 20+ years of ownership it's time for this one to go. Located in Ohio $8,500 (Pic's available if I can load them)call or text four 1 nine five 6 six seven 2 four 0

bad timing. sounds like a good price for a driver. The faults you mentioned are fairly easy and less than $500 to take care of except the main seal - they pretty much all leak unless you go to some big measures to take care of - either modify crank to take a viton seal or modify the surround to take a modern crank seal. May be moving soon (either semi local or potential for cross-country) and already have 4 cars to deal with.

4 cars? Meh, I may be moving and am trying to get down to 1 race car and 6 street cars, which means having to sell 1 race car and 4 street cars. God, it hurts my head (and I'm not even counting the motorcycles and car parts. (where in the hell is my aspirin)

In reply to spitfirebill: Try Ontario, Ohio. Car is actually in storage about 40 miles from here but will be in my shop by the end of next weekend (weather permitting)

All I have to do is show interset in something and it sells. I need to start charging a commission.
