Sat in a barn in PA for 21 years. I received it in January of 2010, and had it running in 3 hours. Lots of work done to it since, including, rebuilding the steering rack, front brakes, all hoses replaced, new water pump, radiator, new Webber Carb, shocks, radio, full exhaust and more. Bodywork being done now, and paint soon. Lots of localized rocker pannel rust, but solid floors.
