Serial No. R-4107, engine number 2825, was assembled in 4/63 per build sheet (which comes with the car). Build sheet lists standard components plus a/c, power windows, and twin traction differential. It is an R1 automatic with tinted glass, radio (including 8 track from previous owner), power steering, plus. I purchased the car in June of 2016 and can't complete it due to physical and financial reasons. Since purchase, I have installed a Petronix electronic ignition, replaced the entire fuel system (flushed the gas tank, new sender installed, new fuel lines and filters, and new fuel pump), installed a rebuilt brake booster and dual chamber master cylinder and cleaned the front disc brakes. The original power windows do not work, and I purchased a brand new in box Nu Relics replacement system ($600) that goes with the car. The previous owner had a new a/c compressor put in, but the system needs to be evaluated as he told me the folks in his small town could not get it to run. The heater core needs to be replaced, and while the driver's trough is good, the passenger side should to be replaced. The previous owner had owned the car since 1985 and had not replaced it without any obvious issue. The motor has 98K on it and smokes a little, likely valves or rings. The visual car is very nice as you can see from the pictures and I wanted it represented as it is today. It is a definite head turner wherever it is driven. It starts and runs. The power windows need to be a priority as the next project, in my opinion. My grand plan was to tackle each of the things mentioned and have a nice daily driver, but life got in the way. I placed the no reserve price so that someone else can complete the vehicle. Pay Pal acceptable for $500 down, with a bank to bank exchange for the balance. Car has a clear Minnesota title. Buyer can pick up the car in Minnesota or I will assist in loading it on to a transport service of buyers choice.
