VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
Imported into Australia in 2007 from US. Needed some repairs despite being told it was a daily driver. Rubber in susp needed total replace, 4 shockers, oil leaks, tyres, window glass. Some rust had to be fixed, replace rockers. Registered for unlimited use in Aust in 2008. Have retained LHD. There is still work be done but it seems quite sound and the originality well preserved and retained. It drives nicely, good brakes, front end sound, shifts well, has tappet clatter, but it does drive nicely! Know little of the true history (can't rely on supplied info of original Ca car). Have traced back to owners from Ca, to Ca, to Az, to Fl (that's the last 5 years!) Don't know back before Fl.
