Updated with price (duh!) and pictures/links. I really enjoy taking the car out, though startup with the Weber carbs can be a finicky, but once going, resonate a sound like nothing else. Big smiles always.

Sent responses to PMs and added some more pictures.


Jon the previous builder/owner provided me with all the receipts, build detail, etc. Really provides a great history.


Hi Ickke, I pm’d you shortly after you posted.

The original builder bought the car back.


Yes, I did!

It took some coaxing from my friends and approval from my very understanding wife before I made the call to Rick.

Glad to have it back in the garage. Looking forward to planning and executing the various tasks and of course, getting back behind the wheel!
