Comments: Originally sold in Hawaii with Weber head and factory sunroof. It came to Arizona with second owner in early seventies. The poor car has had a very rough life. As the cars third owner, I have been trusted to fix the following items: Some very big (15inch rear, 14inch front) American steel wheels with two inch spacers have been installed with the fronts hitting the headlight buckets and breaking the bucket hinges. 100lbs worth of very very big fiberglass/bondo flares and some front end damage is keeping me a busy person with the body work. The wiring harness was cut at the firewall and some hideous homemade wiring installed. The dash had twelve extra warning light installed, six extra switches installed, four extra gauges installed and was covered with black vinyl (for a good reason). The most curious modification has to be this, the original factory hardtop has had a big sunroof hole cut into it for the installation of a flip-up glass sunroof. Any donations of money, parts and beer will be greatly appreciated. Anyone know a good physiologist? Update: Jun 17, 2012 I did the smart thing and sold that car to Mark Huffman in Avondale Arizona quite a few years ago. He has since turned it into a SCCA championship winning Solo-II car. It's the yellow one that was on the cover of Sports Car Magazine.
