Ya never know if the price is outrageous, right on, or a bargain until you do a first hand inspection. Way too little info to make a determination.

Would require an 'up close & personal' inspection before deciding.

Seller did not even post pictures so we could at least see the actual condition of the car

Sounds like a really friendly guy based on how the ad is written. No pics, classic.

A conversion to a 4 speed or a Tremac 5 speed is very easy. I would do the 5 speed if I was you! The old 3 speeds kinda suck IMO.

Arlie or I can step you through it.

Congrats! Can you send the VIN and other info to Mike Jewell for the Registry if you haven't already?

And we want to see pics! Lots of pics!
