It has blacked out headlight rings (one is very faded) also a Sandman feature.
It needs a restoration, the original motor runs but is tired, the body has dints but is super dry with only a couple of bubbles on the left and right plenum but super rust free other wise and in old paint with nothing to hide, it will need a new drivers side guard and nose cone but the eBay seller will supply a nose cone.
