About “Y84 Bandit #2”

A friend called me about this car he had started to restore a few years ago. He told me he was ready to sell it as other priorities had come up. It really wasn't a good time for me to purchace another car, but he was eager to sell it. He wanted me to have it as he knew he would see it restored and not parted out. After seeing how far he had already come and how much he had spent on gathering parts (mostly NOS parts) we settled on a price. He had already removed the frame,media blasted and painted the undercarriage, installed new body bushings and replaced one partial floor pan, replaced all fuel and brake lines and all brake parts with new. The dash is in perfect condition, interior parts have all been cleaned or replaced (not installed yet).The car has no rust and is about ready to paint ,It is PHS documented,Y84 SE, WS6 it has the original build sheet . It is a WS6 four wheel disk brake car. He also replaced shocks and bushings (polyurathane) you name it he got for the car. To keep my wife happy I had to agree to sell ONE of my other cars ( which I did ! ) It's the car in the foreground and they are completely restoring it ! (see below)
