1973 280C New member cjkess1

I'm chuck purchased my 280C 5 years ago drove it from Virginia Beach to Southern Pines NC. It had been sitting for 4 years and in terrible mechanical condition. Took it to Sears put new tires on it a new battery and carb cleaner. Drove it home without incident. Disassembled most of car it has taken me 4 1/2 years to put back together.
Fired it up July 1st and have put 480 miles on it. Runs great.
