Hey guys, I am moving to Lake Tahoe this summer and decided to part with a car I never thought I would. The car once belonged to Jimmy Connors and his wife Patti McGuire. The gentlemen who restored and sold it to them in 1985 is still around and I have his information. Vinman (68 REgistrar) sent me the registrar info on the car. It was really nicely redone and very close to a concours car with some finer detailing. It comes with two sets of wheels, the Ten Spokes and the Original Kelsey Hayes wheels and hubcaps with an original KR Spare E70. The car has 46K original miles. It's a 4spd with a 428 Cobra Jet (410hp). I am asking $185K for the car and rather sell it here than go the auction route. If interested, PM me.

HA:) This car was painted Blue once to make Jimmy's wife happy but it has a fresh coat of WT6066 on it in 2011. Pretty funny on 3900, that car was burnt to a crisp, crazy they listed it for $300k. I think it's still for sale somewhere.

Oh yes, old #3900 still resides in almost permanent repose in Charlotte at RK Motors. Has been for sale for many years there, I regularly make the "or best offer" bid on it on eBay and by phone that they still refuse to accept or even consider. They will never get anything higher unless some blind sheik bids from the Middle East....I think the SAAC guys are tired of hearing about it.... :rockon:
