FS: 1975 1.6L Lofoten Green Swallowtail Rabbit – Survivor


1975 Lofoten Green Swallowtail Rabbit. Its a survivor in great condition! It is a perfect project for someone to finish up. I am the second registered owner with 62034 miles. It is a carbureted 1.6L engine that runs strong. The carb does need to be adjusted. Has a 4 speed manual transmission.

It has a 100% original stock interior! In a 90% perfect condition. There is a rip in the drivers seat and the dash is cracked. But considering it's age it is very clean and all together! Has immaculate headliner, carpet and door cards!

I started the body restoration. The rear lower corner rust has been fixed and sealed. I have before and after pictures of that area if you are interested. The rear under body and wheel arch have been cleaned and sealed. The gas tank has been POR 15ed. Thanks to Paintscratch for sending the mismatched touch-up paint as seen in the pictures but that is an easy fix. There are a few other places of rust I was planing on fixing but never got around to. I have tried to picture those areas. This is a very solid car though. Clean floors and strut towers.

The brakes, suspension and tires are original to the car! The brakes need to be replaced – they work but not very strongly - and the tires are dry rot – 2 of them don’t hold air.
This is a project and does need to be towed. (I can have it towed within a reasonable distance from Hillsborough, NJ 08844 for a fee)

I also have NOS OEM 1975 passenger fender, calipers and starter. Probably have a few other 1975 only parts here too that will be included.

Also have very low mileage H&R Ultra low coilovers. Approx 100 miles or less. Obviously, they are not installed.

Also have 1976 VW Dasher Aluminum wheels. 13 X 5.5
Perfect time period correct wheels for this car!

Asking $5000 but price depends on what you want included.

Let me know if you have any questions. I have a bunch more pictures if there is something specific you would like to see.

Nyan car shoots rainbows out the exhaust......(results may vary)
