DESCRIPTION- Where to start. There is way too much to list on what all has been done to the car, but I will list a lot, and there will be some pictures of just some of the receipts spent on the car, those receipts alone JUST in the pictures is over 33K, NO WHERE near all of them, there is NO way to list everything, cause this car was built from ground up. Over 60K, spent on the build and not counting any labor.

  • The car is originally from Colorado, got it froma friend of mine, he's owned the car for over 15 years, and he bought it from his co-worker's grandmother where she bought it new in Colorado. He bought it for couple reasons, one, It was a rust free car, and the other is that she bought it new and only had 58,400 miles when he bought it, in the year 2000. Then the car came here to Tennessee, and that's where the build started. Will list just a few of the prices of some of receipts, can't list all.

    ****Now, you are car guys/gals, you know that there is NO way to list ever single receipt on these builds, and also, over 80% of this work was done by the owner, so that's not including ANY labor expense, just the Knick knack stuff, you know what I mean, look at some of the details.


    Cons-Couple things I know, and are very minor, but want you to know. Scrap on front driver fender and may need front end lined up, since all new suspension installed.


    NOTE: I have had this car a little while and after building something like this, over a long period of time, you just loose interest, the car really hasn't even been drove, look at the odometer, its sad this much money in a car and not even to enjoy it, but enough said on that....Must go..

    NOTE: I have manuals and paperwork on pretty much anything big installed on the car for reference check at any time you needed info (ex. Wiring, fuel pump, suspension, motor, etc..)

    Extra:I do have some paperwork that shows some work done on the car, back in 1980 when it was in Colorado, it had 12K miles on it then and some little before that year also.

    Options- I can assist with a shipper OR if you set a shipper up, I will work with them to make it easy. Have done that many times, and went smooth. I WILL PAY FOR SHIPPING UP TO $50, YES up to $500, so, if its $700 to ship to you, YOU only pay for $200. Thanks


    • Any Questions, please ask, don't mind giving my number, but a lot of people just call and talk about what they used to own or what they like to own, is only reason I don't put my number out. I check my email pretty frequently, unless it's after 10:00 pm, then I will check next morning. I'm an Early riser. Thank you for looking and interest.
