'76 Swallowtail

Post by benno3231 » Mar Tue 29, 2016 2:33 pm

I picked this gem last week. I've been trying to buy it for a while and my persistence paid off. Plus forest gave me a heads up on the craigslist ad. So far All I've done is fixed the door handles and replaced the starter. I got it running ok but the carb was full of dirt so I ordered a kit. Its in pretty good shape, the only rust is around the passenger wheel well. And I had to get rid of the pink wheels and finally got to try out my ra's :thumbsup:

Sorry to be Mr. off-topic douche but what's up with that Legacy SS in the background of the first pic? Looks like it was rolled?

And congrats on your purchase! Love the color and looks smooth with the ra's.

Nice work on that Swallowtail, looks amazing with RA's.

Is that the Subie I've seen out on the MAEC FB page? I'm hoping it wasn't you that rolled it, and you are getting the parts out of it
