Well it has been over 2 years now since the last time I could get her to start bluehoo

The ignition is real basic and original but back in 2015 one day it decided not to start up.

No spark so either the coild decided to stop working or the points died the last time it was running and have to be replaced.

I have had the car since 1979 (shes a 1970 Cutlass Supreme with the 455 )

With my back problem it isn't easy even looking at the points and I know I wouldn't be able to replace that and I can't even get a wrench on the bolt that holds the coil to the manifold

Full tank of gas that I probably should have just used in the mower before it goes bad.

And I don't know of any mechanic around here to get to stop by here to do the job.

And almost 2 years ago I decided to but an electronic distributor from Summit Racing that would for the first time ever make the car start and run with a modern distributor.

No mechanics that I know of that makes house calls here in the middle of......almost nowhere..

Winter of 2019 she will be 50 years old and I sure hope it is back on the road even though I only drive it a couple times in the summer.

Ship it to me. I'll get her fixed up. Plenty of friends and customers like to bust knuckles and get grease under their fingernails. Have a buddy - better than that, he was my best man almost 39 years ago - had a black ragtop same age and a bit smaller powerplant. Back when I had the '70 Cuda.

I'll give you $5K... shipping is on you. wink

Well I have dreamed about driving her across the country one of these days and switching over to electronic ignition would be the best way to do that.........and a new full core radiator .......the current one is like new but one of those replacements that barely does the job on a 60 degree day.

Of course I would have to carry a trunk load of cash just to pay for the gasoline or drive in the slow lane and coast as much as possible smile

I'll sell you the Jag for $5K + shipping .....but not the Cutlass lol now that is a deal cheerstoyou

Love to take the Cutlass around the Brickyard hellyes
