Real rough. early 70 that looks pretty much all original except for the seat. even the tires look original but they are shot. shame because the rears look brand new. i have a few projects ahead of this one but i have been wanting a 70 to fix up and this one is exactly what i wanted. doesn’t run but turns over. condenser wire is missing and who knows what else. i bought it off of a guy who bought it from original owner. it’s been in a barn for years and no idea when it last ran. i think it will clean up nice because it’s just surface rust and lots of grime. i have good results cleaning this stuff with Barkeepers Friend and a power washer. not going to restore it, just clean it and get it mechanically sound. i think the deck is locked up tight so it will get replaced with a spare i have. i’m going to spend a couple hours trying to get it running today but it will get stored until spring. my shop is full.
