Not much to look at

Post  Leonardojose on Sun Jun 17, 2012 1:21 pm

Well, it's not much to look at. But I did get it for free! With title. It was purchased by an attorney a few years back on Ebay for $3500. He shipped it from Calif. to Maryland and invested another $4900+ in power train, brakes and tires. I have all the receipts and can't believe how they took him to the cleaners. Anyway, he wanted it out of his sight and my friend Bob B dragged it over to my place and said Here, now it's your problem and left. Well I have to say after just a little tinkering I got it to start and run but the body is sad and I'll have to bring out the MIG and my sheet metal tools to pretty it up. I can put it on the road with Maryland Historic plates and plan to do that soon.

Wow, you could fit a brand new engine, gearbox and braking system for that! I inspected BMCelf's car for him before he imported it to the US, I reckon all told it cost him less than that and he's got himself a decent Elf for it.

Anyway, you've benefited from someone else's misfortune, and you'll get all the help you need from here!
