I bought my '72 from the PO in April of 2010. It had been sitting on his property for 12+ years, covered in moss and starting to rust. I took a chance that it would eventually start and hauled it back to Portland. the car looked decent after a wash though it had a big dent in the passenger door, profound rust along the roof panel in front of the sunroof, and various mechanical issues. After squirting some diesel into the cylinders and hand cranking the engine, all it took was a new battery, a set of points, condenser, new fuel lines and fuel and she fired right up and purred like a kitten. I later added new front rotors and brakes, had a donor roof from a non sunroof car welded in place, and a full Malaga respray.
