I wanted to give an update about this car. I have had several interested
parties. It turns out that it's a 1500, not a 1600 as previously stated.
It also had rust in the rocker areas as well as the trunk. The rust was
blasted, treated and fiberglassed. The engine and trans were rebuilt
about 5 years ago from my best guess.
We are also asking $5500 for the lot. This car will be sold so don't be
afraid to send an offer or arrange to see it. It is located near
Modesto, CA. We would really like the buyer to see it for themselves as
we're not experts and our opinion may not be the same as yours.
I apologize for any invonvenience this may have caused.
