Not a trailer queen, it's a daily driver that was used to showcase our conversion business. Not the cleanest conversion but has worked since 2006. We highly recommend that you come and look at it in person so you know what you are getting.

Car is 70 miles from Orlando International Airport. Will pick up buyer at no cost and drive to local U-haul dealer.

A few quirks: It's said that you don't own a British car if there is not a puddle in your driveway. This car is no exception and the only fluid it has is gear fluid. It has a small leak of course. Some of the rust is just starting to show through on a few areas. The floor boards were replaced by the previous owner and it was not the best body work.
The brakes have a hydraulic equalizer from front to rear, it requires a special bleeding process that we have not the got the knack for yet. It requires 2 pumps to come to a stop.
