Great, now I can't stand up at work for the next couple mins...

From what I can tell, that looks super clean. Very nice!

Whaaaaaaaaaaaat? A friend of mine almost got one of these, but it needed a transmission and we couldn't find one in time. Super cool.

It is a 1973 P1800ES, with a B23F, Weber DGV down draft, K cam, over drive transmission, lowered, sitting on 240 magnesium wheels.

The car is a solid driver, the body is a good 10' beauty queen :D. Very little rust, all the goodies work in it except the blend door is stuck. Carpeting is faded real bad, seats are in excellent shape. The car is water tight, but needs some love. It has brand new Fuzion MSI tires :( God this are shitastic tires LOL.

So the plans, I ordered a new carpet kit for the car. It is going to the muffler shop to get a very annoying rattle fixed. New Pioneer system going in, window tint, possibly a set of Rota's :D It will also be going to the body shop. I love the patina of the car, but there is some key rust that needs to be delt with professional before it becomes a serious issue. I have also been thinking about turbo charging the B23, but it runs so well right now, I might just enjoy the shit out of it once it is out of the body shop. Tomorrow it goes up on the rack also to check the ball joints, tie rods, etc. She cruises down the freeway at 75 with no problems, but does get vibrations at 77. Also the front end likes to hunt a little, could be the crappy tires too.

Picked it up from a kid in Los Gatos. The car has been in San Jose almost all it's life. Came with a very thick folder of receipts going pretty far back.
