'73 Restored Thing, Super Nice- Price REDUCED   Price: 16000
I bought this THING about 10 years ago and went all out on having it restored. It was media blasted, then nearly all the panels and floor boards were replaced. Its been professionally Line-X on the lower half of the interior. There are some imperfections that could still be done but I've lost all my passion for it. When we do take it out, it is an absolute head-turner. The kids still love it but now one is just turned 16 and she needs a car with AC. I know I've spent at least $55,000 it and have about 2" of receipts. It runs great and because it has a new Alpine System with a custom sub box, it JAMS!!
Here's the jist: Mitsubishi Burnt Pearl Orange Color, completely rebuilt 1776 Fuel Injected Motor with less than 800 miles on it and the clutch, mega Squirt FI computer, 31" BFG tires on American Racing wheels, a custom a made Stay Fast top and Stay Fast windows & cases, powder coated convertible frame with the stainless steel hardware, powder coated front & back bumpers, all powder coated seat frames, newly upholstered front seats, rebuilt speedometer gauge, new fuel tank, Line X floor, All new rubber door seals, hood seals, window seal etc, new windshield, rebuilt gas heater, new CV joints, new front sway bar and just a lot more little parts that went into doing this THING the best way possible. It also includes a new (2 month old) vehicle cover.
It will be a sad day for me when this baby leaves but its time to move on and I've priced it to sell. This is a reliable everyday driver but I put too much into it to treat it as such. Although this car is by all intensive purposes NEW, it is still sold AS-IS. Itís ready to go and Iíve reduced the priced it to sell. There will be a 3% fee added for PayPal.
