More Info: Barn find! Literally found in a barn. Original owner purchased new and died 18 months later. Been sitting in barn since as a home for countless generations of rats. I poured fuel down carbuerator and jump started it. Too my amazement, it idled. I purchased it from owners grandchild and began a rebuild project. Replaced all rubber, rebuilt engine, milled down heads, painted a gritty desert sand color. As I continued, I realized the car was pretty much sound. It has less then 12,000 original miles. I could not find a new dashboard so a cover was placed over it, but I just got a complete dash with all gauges. It has been fitted with a Bluetooth stereo system, rally lights and a few other little items. Starts right up but smokes a bit. I’m certain its a stuck valve because rebuilt heads were sprayed over with some type of paint and I think it caused a valve to stick. Luckily, the engine can be pulled out within an hour…I’ve done it half a dozen times already. Due to recently purchasing a new house with horse stables, my focus will be on other priorities, thus I decided to sell. All customization are bolt-ons. This can be an ultimate show vehicle. Call or text at 469-five hundred-6766.
