****NO RESERVE AUCTION. THIS CAR WILL SELL TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER.***SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY PLEASE.***
I RESCUED THIS BEAUTY IN 2012 FROM A LONG TIME GARAGE STORAGE IN MICHIGAN. MY INTENTIONS WERE TO RESTORE IT AS A HIGH QUALITY DRIVER. BUT I HAVE SINCE FOUND ANOTHER PROJECT (69 CHARGER RT) THAT WILL REQUIRE MY FULL ATTENTION & $. SO REGRETABLY, I MUST LET THIS ONE GO. WHEN I FOUND IT. THE PAINT WAS BADLY FADED BUT IT ONLY HAD MINIMAL RUST. I HAD IT TRANSPORTED HOME & SENT OUT TO MY BODY/PAINT GUY.
PRIOR TO PAINT: THE PAINT WAS BADLY FADED & CRACKING. BUT THE BODY WAS VERY STRAIGHT WITH MINIMAL RUST. SO I HAD THE BODY STRIPPED TO BARE METAL. BOTH LOWER SECTIONS OF THE REAR 1/4'S HAD SOME MINOR RUST. THE RIGHT SIDE HAD A LOWER SECTION OF A NICE USED 1/4 WELDED IN. THE LEFT SIDE ONLY NEEDED A MINOR PIECE WELDED IN. BOTH AREAS CAME OUT NICELY. FLOORS & FRAME ARE SOLID. THE ONLY ISSUE WAS THE DRIVER SIDE FLOOR PAN. A NEW PAN HAS BEEN RIVETED & SEALED IN. BUT IT STILL NEEDS COSMETIC FINISHING. AS THE REST OF THE UNDERCARRIAGE DOES ALSO. THE BUMPERS WERE FADED. SO I HAD THEM RECHROMED.
AFTER PAINT: IT WAS WET SANDED & BUFFED TO A MIRROR LIKE FINISH. THE PAINT IS NEAR SHOW QUALITY. THE BODY IS STRAIGHT AS AN ARROW. I PLANNED TO KEEP THIS CAR. SO I HAD IT DONE RIGHT.
MECHANICAL: THE LT CODE #'S MATCHING 401 NAILHEAD RUNS STRONG! NO LEAKS. ***NEW VALVE COVER GASKETS, THERMOSTAT, COOLANT FLUSH, PLUGS, PCV, WIRES, CAP & ROTOR.*** I HAVE NEW POINTS. BUT HAVE NOT INSTALLED THEM (I DON'T HAVE A METER TO SET THEM). ALL FOUR DRUMS HAVE BEEN TURNED. SHOES ARE GOOD. BUT THEY COULD USE A MINOR ADJUSTMENT. ONE REAR ONE SEEMS TO GRAB A LITTLE SOONER THAN THE OTHERS. THE BRAKE PEDAL IS HIGH & SENSATIVE. THE A/C COMPRESSOR WAS REMOVED WHEN I INSTALLED THE V/C GASKETS. I DID NOT REINSTALL IT. BUT IT SPINS FREELY & WILL BE INCLUDED WITH THE SALE ALONG WITH THE ORIGINAL CONDENSER.
INTERIOR: VERY GOOD ORIGINAL CONDITION. FRONT SEATS HAVE MINOR SEEMS SPLITING. REAR SEATS ARE NEAR PERFECT. HEADLINER HAS 2 SEEMS SPLITTING. REAR SAIL PANELS NEED RECOVERING. REAR SHELF PANEL & KICK PANELS WERE BAD & HAVE BEEN REMOVED. CARPET & DASH ARE GOOD. DOOR PANELS COULD USE VINYL RECOVERING. BUT THERY ARE VERY PRESENTABLE.
***A NEW HEADLINER, TRUNK CARDBOARD KIT, REAR SHELF PANEL & FRONT KICK PANELS ARE INCLUDED WITH THE SALE.***
ELECTRONICS: BOTH FRONT WINDOWS WORK. REAR WINDOWS DO NOT. SEAT MOTOR ENGAGES & SPINS. BUT SEAT DOES NOT MOVE. I BELIEVE IT MAY JUST NEED A CABLE. ***THE HEADLAMP MOTOR & LINKAGE ARE OUT OF THE CAR. THEY ARE INCLUDED WITH THE SALE. HEADLAMP MOTOR TURNS SLOW. WILL PROBABLY NEED A REBUILD.***
THE CAR WAS SITTING FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS & WAS NOT WASHED BEFORE THE PHOTOS WERE TAKEN (IT WAS FAR TOO COLD OUTSIDE). THE WHEELS & TIRES WILL CLEAN UP NICELY & ARE VERY GOOD DRIVER QUALITY.
I'VE TRIED TO EXPLAIN EVERTHING THOROUGHLY. BUT MAY HAVE LEFT OUT SOMETHING. FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE. **SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY PLEASE!!**
THIS IS AN AWESOME CAR! ALL OF THE TOUGH & EXPENSIVE STUFF HAS BEEN DONE. A GREAT INVESTMENT! FINISH IT YOURSELF & SAVE. THESE CARS FINISHED SELL FOR OVER $35K WITHOUT THE DUAL QUADS!
MORE PHOTOS CAN BE MADE IF NEEDED. ***I HAVE A VIDEO WITH THE CAR RUNNING FOR SERIOUS BUYERS.***
***PLEASE BID ONLY AFTER YOU HAVE ASKED ALL YOUR QUESTIONS. PLEASE BID ONLY IF YOU HAVE FUNDS AVAILABLE & WILL COMPLETE THE SALE.***
***SERIOUS & REASONABLE BUY IT NOW OFFERS WILL BE CONSIDERED. I'M HAPPY TO ASSIST WITH INSPECTIONS & SHIPPING AT THE BUYERS EXPENSE.***
TO BE CLEAR. I DON NOT BELIEVE THIS IS A GRAN SPORT MODEL. BUT THE DUAL QUADS & GRAN SPORT EMBLEMS WERE ON THE CAR WHEN IT BOUGHT IT. SO I HAVE IT LISTED AS A GS TRIBUTE.
THANK YOU FOR VIEWING.
