      1971 144S in good working order for sale with LOTS of extra parts

      We have a car that's single owner and has been maintained very well over the years where it was a daily driver and then garage kept for 20+ years afterwards. It had a complete engine & transmission rebuild at around 144K miles (currently ~204K miles I think). The engine was bored out to 2.2L I think and it has an aftermarket higher flow carb among some other things. The engine is a B20D I believe. It runs very well and is very smooth. The transmission and clutch are in great shape and I believe it has been rebuilt since the engine, I'll have to check the records to be certain.

      There are also a ton of parts we've collected over the years, from exhaust manifolds, headers, alternators, flywheels, pumps, etc - mostly stripped from other cars that were being scraped but it's a considerable amount of parts.

      I'm not sure I'll find a buyer in my local area (1.25 hours from Philly or Baltimore and ~ 25 mins from Harrisburg PA) and I thought I'd post here to see if there is any interest or if anyone has any suggestions on getting rid of it. The owner wants to make room and get rid of it, so I'm posting here to see if there is any interest. I can't upload pictures to this site or I would, so IdK how to share them... I'll check the gallery to see if that works.

      Here's a list of what's been done to the car and all the extra parts that I have.

      Are you selling the parts individually? I would be interested in the extra dashboard if it's in good shape.
