If that doesn't work out, I might have a lead for you here in SoCal with another car that is not listed.

I have my restored 73 in the for sale section. (Couldn't paste the link). It's yellow, completely restored. It doesn't have the stock steering wheel or engine oil bath installed. I have both pieces & the original single carb. No rust, everything works

If I was looking today, the one in Old Bug looks pretty nice. I am happy with mine, all original, and have a standing 20K offer with a local guy who rented one exactly like mine, on his honeymoon many years ago.
