Unique opportunity to acquire a partially completed "nuts and bolts" Mistral coupe restoration. The car came from the sale of an estate. Much of the difficult and expensive work has been completed, including body work, paint, chrome, engine work, brakes, fuel injection (rebuilt by Kinsler), new exhaust, Borrani wheels redone by Dayton wire wheels, new tires, and seats re-leathered. The restoration is fully documented with photos and over $119,500 in receipts ... that does NOT include the initial cost of the car! This Mistral has the desirable 4.0 liter engine (matching numbers), 5-speed, Borrani wire wheels and original Lucas fuel injection. According to factory records this Mistral left the factory in March 1967 and was silver with black interior ... same as today.
It is believed that all parts are included, but it is difficult to verify as there are many loose parts. The windshield, back glass, rear bumper, seats, tail lights are included. Prospective purchasers are welcomed inspect the car and loose parts
Mechanically the car is mostly together and was tested (see invoices). It still needs a considerable amount of assembly, including the interior trim pieces, headliner, carpeting, door glass re-assembly, plus other.

This Mistral is ideal for someone that is mechanically inclined and can do most of the reassembly work himself. The out of pocket expenses should not be too much as the expensive items have already been done.
