I have owned it since 2004 having bought it through E-bay from a man in Tracy, California. He had owned it for 7 years but early after buying it the water pump leaked and the owner parked it with the intention of repairing it. However, he was involved in an accident which injured his back preventing him working on it so the car sat there until I bought it. I replaced the pump, thermostat, head gasket, timing belt and had the radiator rebuilt with a third row. I also carried out a variety of other jobs that a car that has been sat for so long needs such as new brake hoses, seals, battery, tires and rebuild the switches and carburetors. Although I was living in California when I bought it, it is now at my new home in North Carolina.

The most distinctive thing about the car is that some previous owner had the car repainted in a burgundy colour. I donít know why. They also made new wing mirror pods and mounted them to the bottom of the A-posts. They did a good job and it looks like a factory paint job although you can see the original black on the wheel arches in the front compartment. Apart from this the car is very original. It still has the air pump and air injection. I recently fitted a factory silencer bought in last yearís parts sale.

The car is now for sale as I do not have time to maintain it. It is reliable and I use it regularly.
