    I've had the car for 5 years and have driven it ~5,800 miles so far. I recently drove the car 1700 miles round trip to DLG2020; the car made it there and back without failure. I prefer a potential owner see the car in person. I want the next owner to be satisfied and any/all remaining restoration items disclosed.

    Currently a carb conversion; runs great and I'm very satisfied, but if K-Jet is desired I have a complete K-Jet system and will negotiate options w/the sale.



    I'm listing here first with a "rough draft," then will list on Talk after refining the listing a bit. I've been procrastinating and really need to pull the trigger so I'm putting up the info I have available.

    I'll post a fresh/recent set of interior & exterior pics after the next wash.
