new as of 6/1/00 back to project page
| After buying Goldie, I still needed a good spit tub. Well as
luck would have it, nearly right in my back yard, (15 minutes away from me) was Whitey.
She's nearly 90% original. Less than 200 miles on her in the last 10 years. Stored indoors, only minor surface rust here and there.
Tan interior in relatively good shape. Newer dash in excellent condition. No crazing or cracking on the veneer or coating. All lights, gauges, etc work fine. Tan ragtop boot cover, and black tonneau are in EXCELLENT condition.
KYB adjustable gas shocks up front, corvette air shocks and a new leaf spring in the rear. All brakes recently rebuilt. New (very good tread condition) Brigstone 175/70 13 tires all around of stock steel wheels.
Transmission is very smooth, single rail. (reverse is up and next to third) Steering is tight and positive without any binding. Not a squeak from her during the test drive.
.... stay tuned as I investigate my new toy!.
