I can answer these questions and more but don't have access toa camera for pictures yet. The is currently 30miles n/w of chicago and has been garaged for the past 15 years, by various owners, but it is showing severe rust damage. The rear 1/4 panels are rusted through around and behind the wheelwells, I believe the cowl area where the vents go into the cab are rusted through and possibly down behind the front wheels (torque boxes?) the doors hood and front fenders appear o.k., the tailgate is full of putty and has been damaged a second so thr bondo has popped.
The engine is a 1973 2BBL with a C4 with a floor shifter. and I believe these came with a 9" rear axle. Three years ago I drove the car 20 miles home after topping off the cooling system off (bad water pump,which has been replaced) 50/50 mix. the car was started about a year ago but the carb was leaking. and the master won't hold brake fluid,got a leak somewhere. I have removed the dist. cap because I was going to install a pertronix ignition system and never got it done.
As far as the tires go they are 14" radials mounted on what appear to be original Ford magnum 500 wheels that are dirty but could be cleaned up , one has some slight damage (bent) probably from hitting a parking block or pothole, they do hold air, but do not have center caps.
the car is 90% complete, and I do have the original bench seat along with some other interior parts. Idon't have the time or money to fix or part out,and it must go. I would rather sell it than crush it.
