Perhaps with this photo you will see the 49 years old interior still has its original beauty although few tears was shown. At the very least, no rotten are present in and would be greats if all panel instruments to be in work properly. Curious to see the rear side and headliner you should ask.

Detail by owner
Up for sale is my 67 122S. I purchased the car with the intention of making it a cool cruiser, but I can no longer afford to keep it.

The car has a history of documentation, including the original DMV papers.

  • Previous owner thinks that the B18 engine has been slightly bored out, with an aftermarket camshaft added.
  • Dual SU carbs
  • Brand new distributor cap, plugs, and clutch master cylinder.
  • Comes with a spare windshield, the current one has a crack, but I do not notice it when I'm driving.
  • Straight piped, very loud

The car is mechanically sound and drives well, but the exterior is rough. The floor pans are rusted through in spots, and 1 tire has a slow leak and needs to be re sealed. There is a parasitic draw I am trying to locate.
