1963 Spyder for sale in CA

forsale


The time has come to part ways with my 1963 Spyder. A little about the car: I am the second owner, I bought it about 5 years ago and COMPLETELY went through it. I have all the receipts and can answer any questions. It runs very well, I would not, and do not, hesitate to drive it anytime, anywhere. It is what I would call a very nice driver, it is not a show car. A change in family status (for the better) requires that I sell it. I want it to go to a good home so I am listing it here first.

Here is a partial list of what I have done to it:

Car was completely disassembled, down to the nut and bolt. Everything on the vehicle has been cleaned and rebuilt or restored to like new or better condition.

Motor and drive train:
Heads, turbo, distributor, and carb rebuilt by Rear Engine Specialists
New rings and bearings, cylinders honed (specs were verified by a machine shop)
All new seals
Fan and bearing upgraded to late model style
All shrouds repainted
Transmission and differential cleaned, inspected, and new seals installed
New rear axle bearings

All suspension bushings replaced with new.

Brakes completely rebuilt with new master cylinder, wheel cylinders, springs, and linings.

Underside of body sanded and repainted to factory red primer color.

New paint (Autumn gold)

New rubber on doors and windows.

Electric Fuel pump

Custom Wheels

New headliner and carpet. Interior sanded, primed, and painted black. Back seat is in excellent condition, it was originally red, has been painted black using vinyl paint. Front seats have not been done. FatMat insulation installed throughout the interior.

Trunk sandblasted and repainted.

Comes with a car cover



I am asking $12,000. Car is located in Central California, about one hour South/East of Sacramento. Please email if you are interested or have any questions. skirkman308@gmail.com

Would you post a picture of the Fisher Trim tag?

N ice looking car that obviously has a lot of time and money already invested in it.
