  1. Sounds very similar. I've decided to keep all original. I just can't bring myself to modify it. My wife likes the car, so we might end up with his and hers and I'll modify mine. First up is getting it running! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  2. Want to sell them back to someone that needs them for their 240?? [emoji2] I just posted a WTB for red original 240 seats. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  3. Before I reupholster my seats I was wondering if anyone happens to have a pair of great condition, original red seats. I know it's a long shot but thought I'd try! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  4. Finally got it home today! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for the feedback. It is unmodified other than swapping the carbs out, but it came with the original as well. It's a 2 owner car. 2nd owner bought with 11,000 miles on it. Now it has sat in garage since 1988. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  6. Does the VIN know if it's a manual or automatic? Not looking to hide anything but I'm curious if there is a way to know if someone swapped Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  7. Anyone have other thoughts? Or had cars appraised? If you had 3 of the same identical cars but the tranny was the only difference what would the value change? 1. Original Auto 2. Swapped to 240 4spd 3. Swapped to 280 5spd Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  8. Well...Not looking to flip quick, but don't want to shoot myself in the foot down the road. I'm going to get everything interior and exterior sorted first, but trying to plan ahead. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  9. I got a good deal on a 2 owner matching numbers car that is complete and very minimal rust. The only downside is the automatic. My plan is to restore to factory condition, but I'd like to swap for the manual. Plenty of resources online about doing that, but.... I want to understand the impact on the value. If I put a factory 4 SPD that is year correct is that as good as it being an original manual car? Does it matter to the value? Would I even need to mention it was swapped to a manual or is at as good as original? I'm sure if I jump to a 5 SPD it's no longer 'original' but what does that do to the value? Lastly, leaving it auto, would I be above or below the manual conversion values? Thanks! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
