Interior is clean and comfortable and partially restored. This working and nearly all original vehicle is being sold "as is" with no warranty.

Regarding sale & delivery...

For local pickup, payment can be made in cash or PayPal.

For Buyers requiring shipping, payment can be made with PayPal via Escrow.com.

Escrow.com will be used to broker the transaction. They can manage Paypal or bank wire transfers.
Escrow.com charges a fee for their services. These include $60 for title collection (paid by buyer) and a service fee based on the vehicle sale price. Buyer and Seller will split the service fee 50/50 (buyer/seller).

uShip will be used to transport the vehicle, (assuming transport is needed). Buyer pays for shipping and has the option for covered or not covered transport. Covered transport is more expensive. You can visit uShip to get a feel for shipping options and cost.

If using uShip, both Buyer and Seller need a uShip accounts. Uship account can be created here:


To setup these services, the following is needed:

uShip and Seller need to know your delivery address and zip code to calculate shipping cost.

Escrow.com and Seller need your preferred email address and phone number.

As seller, I will coordinate with Buyer and initiate the shipping and transaction details with Uship and Escrow.

After the uShip and Escrow details are entered, I believe Escrow emails an invoice for the vehicle sale price, fees, and shipping cost along with specific steps regarding what to do next. uShip will likely email as well.

The vehicle is drive-able working order, although I do not have a driving video. However, I do have a link for the running engine. Please ask all questions first. Vehicle is being sold "as-is" without warranty or returns.
