I haven't had time for this for years, and just accepted an out-of-state
position which they'd like me to start arround May 1, 2006. I'd like this
out of my garage soon so that I can stash things there to make room for
contractors inside.

Interested parties can send e-mail to drew@poohsticks.org

Wilwood proportioning valve
1975 1" brake master cylinder
1978 FJ40 booster + proportioning valve
Danny Warden adapter

Autometer mechanical temperature and oil pressure gauges

Problems:
It seems to have developed an electrical short when I last tried to start
it a few weeks ago : the ammeter pegs out as soon as the key is switched
to the on position. The same thing happens when all of the fuses are
yanked.

The power steering box needs to be rebuilt.

The carb probably needs to be rebuilt. If nothing else, it's completely
out of adjustment.

I never got arround to having a front drive shaft made after installing
the SM465.

Driver's seat needs to be re-upholstered

I'd want to install a new fuse block.

There is rust in the rear channel, quarter panels where they meet the
channel, and front of the quarter pannels.

There are a few holes in the floor to clear shifter linkages. Some one
should tack sheet metal over these.

The bed inside needs to be painted.

Best offer.
