      I've decided to sell my Super, she's been mostly gone through and is ready to be enjoyed. This is a 71 & 72 style only, with a flat windshield and old style dash. It's been lowered 5" in the front & 6" in the rear, and has also been taken down the "rat rod" path, so don't expect it to be a perfect car or a restoration by any means. She's a driver built to be enjoyed.



      She has a ok interior with no torn seats, but needs new door panels and new carpet. Dash has normal cracks but it's all there.



      Here is the list of all the modifications and upgrades done in the last 6 months



      Engine has been freshened with new jugs and pistons for a 1641cc.

      NGK Plugs & Empi wires

      Solex single barrel carburetor rebuilt

      New Single wire Bosch alternator

      New alternator pulley and belt

      Newer tires with plenty of tread.

      Engine bay rewired

      Headlights rewired

      European H4 headlamp upgrades, lights the roads up like a late model car.

      Empi front adjustable struts with new oil filled inserts

      Torsion bars adjusted in the rear for maximum lowering

      New KYB GR2 rear oil filled shocks

      Upgraded front sway bar with poly bushings

      New brakes drums and shoes all around

      New brakes hoses and hard brake lines

      Electric fuel pump

      AM/FM radio with USB & SD card reader

      New large capcity battery



      Here's the list of the bad.



      Pans mostly solid, has one hole in the rear. Opposite of the battery side

      Right front shock tower has a hole, should be welded but never had it done.

      Needs a seering box, as this one has a lot of play.

      Wiper switch needs replaced



      She turns heads where ever you drive it, so be ready to wave a lot.



      Lastly this car will require a certain type of owner, it rides rough and is over 40 years old so take that into consideration. What you see is what you get, no bumpers, or left running board. Call or text 33O-two85-099six
