It looks better in the pics. The guy i had paint it years ago didnt do very well so it needs some work. BUT, that isnt going to stop me. After a lot of thought and battling my inner purist, i think i am going to do an engine and tranny transplant and just drive the thing. The 36 horse has some problems and i just cant find the time, money, or parts to fix it so i am going to put my other 1776 in it.

That thing is going to need some hard work...you shouldn't fool with it. I'll give you $400 CASH MONEY today Very Happy jk. It's oh, so very sweet, man. Are those the white wall inserts, or the real deal? Looks like inserts in the pic where you have a flat.

No, they are the real deal. The pic looks like that because the tire bead came off the rim. I have had those tires for about 17 years. Ordered them from Coker. Put a lot of miles on that car and the tread looks brand new. Unfortunately they have terrible flat spots on them (sweet bias ply), and although I am not afraid to use older tires past their expiration date, I think it is time to let these go.

Yeah, worked at Pirelli for 7 years and I can tell you tires beyond expiration date are fine. What's the size of those?
