What a steal. If I were the seller I would be second guessing my no reserve! Someone is going to be happy. If I had room I would have jumped in

@cbatson79 – Sorry for the late reply. To answer your questions: 1- Yes, all of the rubber seals around the T-Tops and the windows have been replaced with new rubber, but as you know with these T-Tops they could leak? Since this cars has been completed I can honestly say I have never had it in a rain storm. It stays in the shop during winter time and comes out with blue skies in the spring. I use Griots cleaning products on it not a garden hose. 2- When I take the car out for spin we could sometimes put 100 or miles on it with no problems, I couldn't say that you would never have issues because it is still a 45 year old car. But what I can say its solid, it runs as it should, it has a lot of torque. There isn't a nut and bolt that hasn't been touched. 3- The car is very smooth and has no vibrations at all, it is a blast to drive. 4- The tires were put right before it was painted in late 2019, I have all receipts. Thank you for the nice comment about the car and again I apologize for the late response. ...

No hurries. No worries. Thanks for your response. I appreciate the information. To be frank; My biggest concern now is that since I don’t have any cars I want to part with, where could I find garage space to care for this as it should be cared for and as it sounds like you’ve cared for it?

@dougwillard06 – First let me say what a beautiful car! I always liked the silver and gold examples better than the black “Bandit” most people are enamored with and this one looks just great. I have four questions; 1) Could you comment on the rubber seals around the t-tops/doors/windows? Were 100% of those replaced new with the restoration? And does it seal up nicely/quietly as it should at highway speeds? 2) I’ve owned a lot of old cars, and old cars, when regularly used, just need things. If one were to take this car and start driving it regularly several days a week, do you anticipate anything it might soon need to keep it running/performing well? 3) Does it drive nice and smoothly at highway speeds with no vibrations? (Adding a driving video to the listing might be helpful here if you could.) 4) What is the age of the tires? Thanks for a beautiful listing and good luck with sale! ...
