Vehicle been stored for 45 years. Originally was going to be a daily driver. Never was. Furthest I ever drove it was to the end of our 50 ft driveway and back into the garage. Hasn’t been started during latter years of storage storage but engine turned over now and then with wrench on crank. Some minor body work required on driver door. Front fenders are glass (was going to make a forward opening clip, glass fenders as far as I got). Body primed. new wheel cylinders and master cylinder will likely need new seals. Brake line should be replaced, not double flared. Rubber fuel line was used during restoration to start car. Will need to replace it with metal fuel line. All major work done. Won’t take a much to get her on the road.
Asking $28.000 cdn or best reasonable offer. Rare early bird. It’s been a life-long project, for which I never had a lot of time and have now lost interest. Time for it to go to someone else who would be interested in finishing it. Beautiful car. Serious inquiries only.
