At the Auction
Note: Auction has ended!
The motor is the original 6 cylinder with the original 3 on the tree that were rebuilt years ago. The motor runs well and the transmission shifts well too but the engine compartment area is all original and needs cleaning and paint.
Tires are new and brakes are new with a rebuilt master cylinder. In keeping the car as original as possible the electrical is still a 6 volt system and works fine. The bumpers and grille of the car are all original and have been rechromed and look very nice. The floors are solid and need cleaning and undercoating underneath.
This car is a nice driver and a lot of fun. A clear NC title comes with the car.
