No smog. Chinese repo brake booster, wrong master cylinder, wrong horns. No cowl induction parts other than hood and air cleaner, looks like wrong radiator, cowl seal missing. Not trying to pick but that car is going to need a bunch to make it a correct car. Seeing all that stuff wrong I would be surprised if it still had the orig. carb, alt, dist etc, especially since they are not saying they do.

Did he change his description because I don't see any of what is mentioned in this thread.

I think any of them will do what you want. My old one is a 240 volt Backyard Buddy but expensive compared to others that will do he same thing. 120V will take longer to lift but no big deal. Just make sire you get a sliding jack. They are a scissor like lift with a porta power . https://www.ebay.com/itm/3500-Lb-Kernel-Sliding-Bridge-Jack-7K-9K-Lb-Automotive-Storage-4-Post-Lifts/202387858684?hash=item2f1f41a4fc:g:ZLwAAOSw5qdcD~3E:rk:4:pf:1&frcectupt=true

I have had a 4 post for at least 15 years and love it. I can roll it outside and steam clean the underside of cars etc. Also have the sliding jack that lets me raise the front or rear ends. A couple years ago I bought a 2 post and found I hate using it. I'm getting old and cranky and to use a two post I am getting down on my knees to line up each lift pad at least 4 times. Much easier and less chance for error with a 4 post. You need 10' ceiling to be able to stack cars and need to move the door opener to the header.

But in the pic you say showed the sanding disc also showed you already had damage to rear main bearing.

Anybody that puts 6 gaskets on the dist. is nowhere close to being a mechanic. He needed all those gaskets because the dist was not dropped down all the way to engage the oil pump.

Ran across this again and don't remember if I ever posted pics .69 Pacecar paperwork I got years ago with a different Pacecar. The car has to be out there somewhere as it still existed when they were collector cars. 124679L529151

Maybe wrecked and fenders replaced without replacing emblems ? Really nice car. Love the engine compartment.

The car appears to be very nicely done but I didn't see any documentation to Thomas ?

You never know. There might be 940K in the glove box.
