Car runs and drives, stops straight. Buyers with poor feedback or no funds need not bid. We reserve the right to reject any bid that is suspect to failure to perform. Please call us on our 800-615-2659 number to chat about this car or your ability to perform. We are not dealers nor is this our car. We have not worked on this car, but find it very special and it has the paxton power unit. The gent who found it and started the road back has passed away and his buddies are looking to turn his time back to cash for his bride. We are car nuts who can't stay away from stuff that we built in plastic in the sixties. This old stude is in need of a sugar daddy who wants a good start on a car that has a box of goodies and alot of paper that you do not usually find in the glove box. The mystique of the glass coupe with a back seat is here for you to turn into a trailer queen or a rush hour blast. Bid to win--only bidders win--last bidder rides in the captains seat
