    Vin 3430, The White one from BaT...

    Hi guys, Long time lurker here, but I finally made a purchase of a restoration project. Have wanted one like this since I came across Project Vixen back in 04/05. Wanted a D even longer than that (insert typical story here) I feel like I know what I'm in for thanks to all the great info on here, going to be a long and pricy road for me. Still working out logistics to get it to me, I'll keep the updates coming.

    Nice! Better you than me. I think there's an awful lot of people who will be excited to see how it scrubs up.

    Thanks everyone!

    So after considering the options for getting the car from PA to FL i decided to go ahead and have it shipped. I decided since the cost and time for me to drive up there and back was very close to what I was quoted by a auto shipper (Beacon Shipping) that it was the best way.

    The Car came with a new windshield which added some complexity to the coordination, but the seller was willing to have it installed before shipment. That took care of the worry about how to get that part down here without adding cost or risking breakage.
    This will make any repairs i could have done to the A pillar trim or the dash panel with the windshield off harder later, but i can deal with that.


    With that done and the deal closed it should be on the transporter early next week.

    Its been great working with Frank at Miniobsession in West Chester who’s been brokering the deal for the seller.

    In case you guys didn’t see the listing, here it is.

    Cant wait to throw some gas in it and fire it up!

    I share your excitement, but I do recommend you don't fire it up until you clean out the fuel system (minimum). From the condition of that engine, you should flush and inspect all fluids as well.
