Purchased in October 2005 from a guy at work for $350. All original, but needs minor body, paint, and complete interior. I ran a fuel hose into gallon jug of gas, and it started up. Two quarts of tranny fluid got it moving. Complete new brake system makes it stop.
Still needs a final tune-up, rear window seal, new rubber, and check all lights to make it road-worthy. Hopefully in spring 2007.
