    Shipped over from the States October 2013... Having gone through a $12,000.. substantial, expensive refit, partial Body off respray, (Photo`s available) Seat`s recovered, in original spec`s, new Carpet, most Chrome redone. New tyre etc etc..

    It has the 2 speed Dyna auto gearbox and the 5.3 Nailhead 322cu in V8.

    Genuine 54K miles.. Very few of this model in this condition left..

    This is 100% original.... "NO" power Steering or Brake`s.. Not 100% concurs, but nearly, needs a little work on window trim`s etc..

    I bought this to take to show`s with the wife driving this and me the motorhome... But two & a half "Ton" of No power anything.... and she cannot handle it.. (It`s a man car :wink:)....

    Draws a crowd where ever you park...

    I have my eye on a similar motor, but with power brakes and steering.. But cannot buy till this has gone,, due to garage space,, will just fit in an oversize single garage.. with 7ft door width..

    Fully UK registered.... Free Road Tax & MOT exempt.. & Cheap Classic Car Insurance... (Me.. £120 per year)..

    There is one in America, similar condition for $35,000, and one in Australia for 33k Australian dollars...

    Open to sensible offers.... PM me and I will get back to you.. Few photo`s..

    stunningly beautiful, can imagine driving along listening to elvis, orbison and neil diamond, oh happy days, the stuff of youthful dreams..

    but the penny jar won't extend to that, sadly, am sure that it will go to a really appreciative home though..

    It even says special on the lid of the "Trunk" Mo, I think you should keep it just because you are so 'SPESHUL.'

    Such a shame you have to move it on Mo. It sure is a very nice motor. Good luck with sale. (y)

    Strangely enough...... Elvis bought a Pink one or had one sprayed pink for his mum...

    I was talking to a guy at a local show I went to and he thought it was still under wraps at "Graceland".... dont know how true that is.. :)

    Mo, if I bought it do you think I would be as big a hit with the chicks as you?

    I would need a bigger garage too.
