How much asking??

As regards to price. $10,000 to $12,000 depending what comes with the car itself.....things like shop manuals, spare parts, etc.
If you are really interested, have a package of info sheets can send you via email.

Geez. I am truly sorry that you have to part with such a nice example due to circumstances.

All the best to you and your wife and good luck with the sale of your car. Looks like a great deal for someone and I hope that someone treats it as well as you did.

Best,

Chris

Very nice car!

I have a 1979 5.0 SLC, serial number 1477, and I wish it was half this nice. Good luck, we all think it is worth your price!
