The buyer is responsible for setting up shipping or can pick the car up locally.
Here is a list of the original parts that came with the car, that will go with the car: heads, intake, carb, exhaust manifolds, power steering parts, air cleaner, steering wheel, original crank pulley, and original fuel pump. I also have a set of 3:54 rear gears and a chrome rear cover that I never had time to put on. All the items should still be packed up in boxes in my storage shed. These items are probably worth over $1,000 on the open market.
