This well photographed 1970 car needs everything, as they say.

Thirty years parked in Florida.

If you're up for sorting a lot of rust and a mouldered interior, the 2bbl Cleveland & auto box are already in there.
No reserve.

Cleveland. Ah, that explains the odd exhaust I suppose. Well, not really.

Could have some potential I suppose for someone who is a XKE fan but also a Cleveland enthusiast. Probably not so many of those around these days with the wherewithall to finish the job. An offer of about half that would seem more reasonable to me.

Jim, the wear on the left front tire has me a little worried. More than likely need an alignment before driving much.
I am out.

Charles, this was a FWD v8 conversion with open dif. Just burned the tread off the LF tire :-)

Might be a 351 but, valve covers are Windsor. Exhaust manifold are swapped and upside down.
