Description

This car was removed after being in storage for 20+ years. It was then subjected to a complete mechanical restoration by beverlyHill motors in Houston Texas. Included was a complete engine overhaul, transmission overhaul, overhauled driveshaft, new U joints balanced and restored. Brakes all brake hydraulics, master cylinder brake power booster. Shifter rebuilt, all new bushings, new clutch and hydraulics, master cylinder and slave cylinder. Cooling system, all hoses water pump, radiator recore. The body is wearing its original factory paint which is an excellent condition. The panel fit is perfect from the factory and the fenders have their original spark wells and fender notches. This is a completely rust free car with original trunk bearing all spot wells, factory carpeting in perfect condition. All dash components worked perfectly except for the clock. The seats have been rebuilt with new cushions and MB factory text as well as a new blue soft top, hardtop headliner has been re-dyed and has one very small ding in the top, and there is no body damage or dents in the body original windshield with no cracks or chips. The rear axle has been changed to a 3.27 for better performance and economy. Two data cards two sets of keys and service receipts for over $80,000 in the last year. The car has 350 miles since the mechanical restoration. Original engine and transmission, even the firewall insulation is original. This Hass to be one of the most original 71 4 speeds. I have over 300 photos from the original car as removed from storage to the finished product hardtop rack and car cover Coco mats.
