Unless the chassis is rotten, that is an utter steal at $15K.

690 TQ? Wow, Talk about not putting the power down till well into the triple digits!

Must have been just a stupid amount of power back in the 80's when tires were crap!

Update on the car...

Engine was disassembled...it needs a new crank. The rest of the engine is in good shape.

This bummed me out but this opens the possibility for other engines or a full rebuild of the one offered with the car.

The body and floors are in good shape. The chassis stiffening for the V8 install is a bit outdated but nothing crusty or nasty under there. PM me for a link to a full gallery of every bit of the car.

Considering the information on the crank I am lowering the price to $10K firm. Contact me for more photos.

The Eng. and 915 trans are out of car. Eng. is shown in pieces.

I have nothing to do with it but looked at the pictures. I do not know why we have to ask for them to be sent but that is what I did.

Someone close may jump on this as the sum of the parts will add up to their asking price.

This is the right place to sell it. They just need the right guy (price and right deal)

Hey guys,

OK my bad I thought this ad was updated with the current condition of the car. The engine is out and disassembled.

Here are some updated photos

Bump.

Looked into a new crank for the engine...one could be bought from $300 on up, depending on what level you prefer.

A new crate engine by Blueprint Engines, dressed with carb is $3,345...

A good project for someone who has the time.

Back in July of 1990 I was on a trip to LA. and landed at LAX and pulling out of the rental car lot this car came by. I followed it all the way to Newport Beach was hoping he would stop so I could look at it.
