I just towed this home two nights ago. (1/25/15)
1975 245.
Production date Jan 1975
Was in storage since 1981 :omg:
Previous owner drove it few blocks about 4 years ago. His warehouse was getting retrofitted for earthquake protection


I switched out the front tires for the tow. One of the fronts was badly damaged. According to the PO he put new tires before putting it in storage.
Big thanks to Luke and Ken for helping me get it out.

Wow. Shelved 6 yrs into service? How many miles on it? Way cool.

Honestly this would make an awesome candidate for a nice good clean-up...

And then yank that ****in' motor out and drop in something badass because no smog.
