I have added more pictures first picture is vinyl roof drivers side, second picture of passenger.
I have rebuilt the transmission year before last, this car sat of a friend of my fathers for over 18 years in a car port Temecula California. All the seals weredrycrackedin the trany any needed rebuilt. there is an engine oil that leaks from the rear main seal after taking the trany out but I haven't had the money to fix nor do I want to put leak seal or stop leak in this engine. Has rebuilt top end before training due to compression in number one cylinder having blow by when lobe came to top of cam. replaced cam, timing chain and cam sprocket due to sitting and not being ran. Have changed out master cylinder, has new brakes, new tires, exhaust.
The ONLY reason why the price of "buy it Now" is $3100 is because of a posting mistake that I can not change, the $3100 was supposed to be the reserve. I have over ten grand in parts and service not counting the endless hours of labor that have been spent in trying to restore. cosmetic was not the concern when I started this project but must admit Glenda looks beautiful.
I am sick and cannot work on this car anymore. It is almost complete. a few small minor things needed.....The air conditioner is all complete, just checked for leaks, changed seals it needs r12 charged. The vacuum line and egr valve need replaced on the intake manifold to keep her from making a noise after engine warm up, the passenger rear door lock needs freed. These are the only things that come to mind that need finished before I was going to get interior upholstered and vinyl top redone.
If you have patience a mechanical ability to work on old cars these things should not be difficult to complete.
I wish you all Happy Bidding
