Father and I purchased the car over 35 years ago and drove until engine started burning oil with 120k miles. Has been stored in dry Colorado garage since about 1988. Pulled out of garage, built up oil pressure, got gas to carbs and started up. Water pump was froze so replaced waterpump. Let run for a couple times for at least 5 to 10 minutes. Still burns oil, but idle kept getting better longer it ran.Oilwas still full in carbs. Brakes and clutch hydraulic lines and cylinders will need to be cleaned and rebuilt as they are dry and empty. Minimal rust on lower left front fender and behind left door. Don't see any coming through on right side but could have rust. Front fenders with no rust are included in sale. Also, have patch panel for behind left door. Minimal around left rear wheel arc. Do not see any rust in floor boards. Left fender and door bent where door caught fender when in storage. Seats were redone and are in good shape. New old stock radiator is included as well. Wood steering wheel also included in sale.
