1 is a driver quality car that had been in storage for some time. I bought it a couple of months back with the intent of using it as a driver while I completed the TR8 that I have been restoring over the past 4 years.

New Edelbrock 500 CFM AVS2 with electric choke. Trans oil changed with Valvoline Syncromesh. Rear end oil changed with GL4 gear oil. New wipers and washer pump.
The bad: Looks good from 10 feet, but needs a repaint. Interior is a mix of velour door cards and plaid seats (worn). Gas gauge doesn’t work. Convertible top has a tear that has been duct taped. scrape on passenger fender. AC is long gone.
The second car is an uncompleted project with pretty much every part refurbished or replacements bought. Needs the seats recovered and assembly to be completed.
