Full Description: Vehicle Condition: This is a project car, I have been building off & on for the past 21 years. It has been driven less than 200 miles in the past 21 years. I only drove it in parades / shows, it has won a couple of trophies. It has been stored in storage sheds, barns & garages the past 21 years. I start it up 1 to 2 times a month and drive it around the neighborhood and then put it back into the garage and cover it up. It is approximately 95% complete; almost show worthy, only a couple of small things left to do. I do not have all of the paperwork & invoices for all of the engine work that was done. I have moved a few times (school and jobs) in past 20 years and the information was lost in move. The motor was built in 1982; my dad ran an automotive shop that was attached to a machine shop. I got all of the parts at cost, the machine work done for free, and the engine put together for free and it still cost me $1,000.00. This is a GREAT car, it needs someone who will take care of it and who is willing to finish off the little details to make it show worthy.
