Listing of new/unused parts, etc. NOT on car:
• stainless water pipes along side of head (Eds Tubes)
• Walbro fuel pump

• power steering pump and lines
• Cam drive belt - new in box, several years old

Misc:
• Shop Manual (grey binder)
• documentation from original purchase including window sticker
• misc Merkur literature

I won't lie, I'm interested. But I need to confer with the wallet. Good luck with the sale, I'll be in touch if some other lucky mofo doesn't snag it first.

Seems like someone got a good deal. Just the T9 and exhaust system should be worth the asking price.
You do not pick Merkur, Merkur picks you.
