I am the third owner of the vehicle and I purchased it in 1985 for $2,700. Since then, with the assistance of Classic Industries and there helpfull staff, I have spent countless hours and dollars restoring it from the ground up. Classic Industries has provided me with items such as sheetmetal, interior, chrome trim, wiring, fuel system components, suspension, convertible top & assembly, etc. At this point it is about 99% restored. A few more pieces here and there, and it will be complete.
Thanks Classic!!! I couldn't have done it without you!
