History
Purchased May 19th, 2016 from the second owner. He purchased it in 1980! 86,000 original miles, sat in his garage under a cover for 15 years. Will need to replace the brake system, rebuild the Motorcraft 2150 carburetor, etc. I pulled out an aged Alpine stereo system and alarm, both of which were non-functional. Carpet is in amazing condition!

Modifications

Drivetrain
Stock: Ordered a rebuilt MC 2150 as the one on the motor has a cracked choke housing and the other components are very tired. New plugs, wires, vacuum temp switches, thermostat and thermostat housing. The choke heat tube is rusted thru as most of ours are, temporary repair using JB Weld.
Interior
Original, with real sheepskin seat covers! Carpet in exceptional condition!!
Exterior
Was yellow - years ago, PO painted it red inside and out to match his boat...body straight, paint is acceptable, glass all clear and untracked. Side glass nicely tinted.
