The total millage is 5,942 since it was restored..As shown on the odometer This Vert was the VolksWorld cover car back in Feb.2003 (and comes with that issue) It's a multiple show winner, and is inimmaculate condition. Always kept in a heated garage and covered, alongwith my other show cars. Bought it for the wife, but it was a low rider,Her not understanding how to dodge a pot hole or go up a driveway at aangle, led me to raise it back to stock height, and go the white wall onRaders theme. There is a 5th spare, just not pictured.. The interioris a heavy duty tweed through out, with matching door panels. Has akick ass sound system, with big amps and subs and the works, deck iscustom fit in the locking glove box. Top is a tan Stay fast canvas withmatching boot, and cloth headliner, all very nicely done (best I haveever seen in fact) Motor is a 1915cc extremely balanced and tuned unit,sporting a 110 cam, C.B. straight cut gears, and a set of perfectlytuned Dellortos 40's. The exhaust is a ceramic coated merged header witha matching ceramic coated Fat Bob muffler set up. Motor is full flowedwith a secondary 96 pass oil cooler, with a attached fan on a (under thedash switch) Chrome VDO oil temp and pressure gauges are in the glovebox so you can keep a eye on things!! As you can see the motor ischromed out so things run a bit warmer, but one flick of the switch andit will cool right down to 160/170 deg.Wife wants to sell it to put the money into our rental house, not my choice but it's hers to sell.To see meany more pictures, look for hidden link above, just paste together between the (u) and the (s) and that will send you to my photo bucket link.
