This car was for sale earlier this year. I spoke to the owner at the time and almost bought it myself (I even spoke to the shop in Crest Hill)

Why are you selling it?

Already though? You must've purchased that car in early June from my last emails with Jon.

Do you still have the original wheels? Would you consider the car on the original wheels separate from the ones you've installed?

Sure, I can include the original wheels with the sale. Thanks!

Few more questions:

- Have you tested the blower (I know the A/C was pulled out), but does the blower (and heat) still work?
- Have you driven the car at highway speeds? Any noises/vibrations?

Hi, yes, fan still works. The previous owner also installed electric heater.

Here's a video of test drive. No noises or vibrations.

Bid on it, you just might win! =P

Thanks!

Yes, I had seen the video, but I saw you didn’t go over 60mph. The wind noises also weren’t super helpful.

But nevertheless, credit to you because your photos/videos are vastly more thorough than the previous owner’s for sale post.

I was able to get more out of the shop in Crest Hill about the car than the previous owner (even though he was extremely helpful and friendly in trying to answer all of my questions).

But coming back to my original question: I wanted to know if you had a specific price in mind, and if you’d be willing to remove the 20” wheels from the sale and sell the car with the original wheels. (If you want to give me a price for that through a private message or something).

I’ll keep an eye on the auction, I know the price the previous owner and I had agreed to, I just was too slow to pull the trigger because I wanted to fly to Chicago to see the car first. If its within that range by Friday afternoon I might throw a bid in there. Just sucks that shipping from CA is going to be way more than shipping from IL. :)

Hi, I do not have a specific price in mind. Trust me, I know very well that this is NOT a money maker. What did you have in mind? I was just going to let the auction goes where it goes. What was the price you agreed with the previous owner?

And yes, I can sell the car without the wheels.

Thanks!

Sounds good, but if there's a direct way you want to talk numbers let me know. I sent you a Private Message here, but if you'd like to shoot me your contact info, we can set up a call.
