Well she is in the garage. A 78. It is disassembled a bit farther than the description I got initially but I think it will be ok. Will need new exhaust from the manifold back. They sent some slip ons that had the baffles removed so they are essentially a straight pipe. That won't be going back on. All the body parts are in good shape. A few nicks in the paint but overall pretty good shape. Meeting him next weekend to get the title so I won't be digging into it before that. I have 3 boxes of miscellaneous parts and bolts and nuts so that could be fun. They pulled the float out of the tank and it appears they repainted that. The float is badly corroded so I will be looking for a good parts source. Anyway here is a before pic. Hopefully it doesn't turn into a money pit. But considering the price I paid ($0) it shouldn't be too bad.
