Description

This is a very early car, about the 1500th one built. Has the square windscreen posts, chrome windscreen with fasteners and arch supports. Been in storage the last 18 years. I dropped and cleaned the fuel tank, replaced the filters, hoses and pump. I dropped and cleaned the oil pan and screen pickup, changed the oil and filter. I replaced the plugs, cleaned up the points and started the engine. It has 60psi oil pressure and temperature remains normal after warm up. I flushed the hydraulic system. Hoses and cylinders were replaced by the previous owner. Shifts through all gears and brakes work ok. Looks like the master cylinder was replaced before layup. Radiator was re cored before storage. Has original green interior. The panels are there and will make good patterns. Top and tonneau are shot. Side curtains have cloudy plastic but could be used. Has a set of 5 Pirelli P4 tires that were new when stored. Needs a tach drive for the generator and the speedo cable doesn't spin. Horn works, wipers work, radio turns on but no sound. Lights work. Lighting switch turns with the key unless you hold it. Needs Lube? Turn signals don't work. Bonnet doesn't fit properly on the drivers side. Has a down draft Weber conversion but the original carbs and manifold are there. Some amateur bodywork has been done as the pictures show. Also some idiot has cut some pieces out of the floor boards as in the pictures. There are some spares and a few new parts. There are a group of books that go with the car. Needs a decent battery. It's fun to drive around my property and would make a nice restoration project for someone who has the knowledge and time. Please ask questions and if you need any specific pictures. Local pickup or you can make transportation arrangements. Low reserve.
