About “Formula 87'”

I Bought it from a guy who spent 8 years in prison and needed the money. I took a chance and bought a one way ticket to Seattle, WA. You could could tell she'd been sitting for a few days, LOL but after a couple bottles of heat she went 2,200 miles to KansasCity, MO. In Feb no less. It took me about 6 months to replace all the plumbing to get her back to turn Key status. It still needs a few things but its getting there. With the exception of the Kenwood Stereo I put in it, it is all original and everything works from bumper to bumper.
