I have a 1973 single pod dash car in my shop that had a total suspension restoration 11 years ago. Also some cosmetics on the outside, new split bumpers and quad headlights. We did the engine top, new cam, lifters, roller chain, Armondo oil pan, heads redone, intake and carb. This one runs great and is very reliable.
It has a very solid original body (was painted maybe 20 years ago--not by me) with no corrosion in the rockers, quarters or the typical areas prone to rust. There are some minor pits starting in the lower door jamb face to rocker transition I am going to repair. The rockers, door posts and front lower valance cross member are all still clean---they were opened and addressed when I re-did the suspension.
It was originally yellow painted red. The jobs was good in the day with no masking lines showing so it was a teardown job. The headlight bar and front cross member were also painted red as original---the radiator was pulled.
It has some checking in the paint from age and sun so it is an ideal buy for a body shop owner or friend that wants a very good car needing only paint. The main problem area is the hood which is checked. The fender tops could use a repaint also if your painting only the hood. The rest is good to fare--very drivable as is.
The price is right at 66,000.00. This car would be 75 to 85+++ with fresh paint so it's price to sell fast.
You can call me at 419-344-8148 and I will explain the details. The picture below as it was before being shipped to my shop.
