Rare Blackhood edition!
You may need all those lights for parlising Moose on the trail

Besides the shine & wheels, that looks like my very first car. Nice find.

It does have some rust issues but nothing too serious. I wanted a car with air but could not find the right one. This one has most all of the mods I wanted except the air. May be a vintage air system in the near future. Check the mods it already has;
VPD stage ll engine, supposedly dynoed at 143hp
electronic ignition
Dual Mikunis
Skandix(sp?) header and exhaust
Sport springs
IPD sways
upgraded bushings.
Mystery spoiler(not on car but with it)
New clutch and pressure plate
short shifter M-41
164 brakes with stainless lines

May get a T-5z tranny as I have all pieces except the trans. The .63 overdrive combined with the 410 rear should make for a good road gear.

Looks like it's probably this one: http://bringatrailer.com/2009/06/02/...o-142s-driver/

I was checking it out on BaT when it appeared a couple years ago before I bought my 142. Let me know if you want to sell the steering wheel and hub combo (assuming it's still on there)

Yes, it is that one. Why would I sell that wheel? Its one of the things I like best. it was also featured by Hemming Motor News. http://www.hemmings.com/users/199725/ride/5677.html.

I hope that oil on the driveway in the above picts did not come from the car.

I have to look them over to see what I want to keep. I also am looking at buying another 142 that doesn't run but is very rust free. I won't know anything about lights for a couple months.

thanks Mat. I have been following the work on your car. I really like what you have done with it. I think it may be the same color as the one I am getting. I have used the SEM paint and been real pleased with it. A lot of the trim pieces on my 240 were biscuit color til I painted them. I like Justins' idea of getting the 140s together. Can't make it all 142s so Gary can come.
