Wasn't running when I went to pick it up at my Grandpa's farm, but all we needed to do was get the carb cleaned and get a new fuel pump. We cleaned out the gas tank and drove it 150 miles on 4 different tires (ex. snow tire, bald tire, etc.) Needless to say I got 4 brand new tires the day after I got it back to Wichita.
I got the car from my Grandpa (3rd owner) which makes me the 4th owner. The first owner bought it for a mail car 'cause he worked for the post office. He backed into some mail boxes and put some minor scratches on the back sides of the car. Right now I am looking at getting the interior re-done and getting dual exhaust as soon as possible. I am looking at getting a carb kit and doing whatever I can to up the gas milage. It gets about 7 in town and 13 on the highway. The car has a 292 V8 engine with a bit over 80,000 miles on it.
If you know of anything else that I can do to the car to up the price value, please e-mail me with ideas.
