Anything known about this car
« on: May 12, 2017, 05:48:42 PM »

Been a while since I have been on here, I have a friend of mine that is pretty serious about this car so I thought I would ask.   Owner may even be a member on here.

Repainted in the 90s. Not a "true" survivor.

I advise you friend to check it out in person and see what it's like.

Looks to be a nice car but “ORIGINAL SURVIVOR, NOT RESTORED” is misleading. I suspect it has had a lot more work than “…painted in the late ‘90s.” The hard tape line at the top of the cowl is one clue.

Missing AIR system
Missing exhaust manifolds
Polyglas F70 x 15 tires incorrect
Wheels should have black backsides
Should not have trunk mat
Other detail errors

All of this is minor. But if the ad described it as restored, which it is, I wouldn’t have mentioned it.

If your friend buys it tell him to take the non original Caution fan sticker off. ???

List of parts/dates is kinda confusing, as it list several items 2x, ie, alternator, distributor, carb. Some are from after the car build. I'm assuming missing original parts were replaced with correct items?
