Ebay Description:

THIS AD IS FOR MY 70's ERA KELMARK KIT CAR, IT IS TITLED AS A 2008 .IT WAS MADE IN MICHIGAN IN THE 70'S THROUGH EARLY 90'S
THIS ONE IS BASED ON A VW BUG CHASIS, IT IS POWERED BY A 1600 VW MOTOR WITH TWIN WEBER CARBS AND IT IS A 4 SPEED MANUAL. IT HAS A SHORT THROW SHIFTER, AND HEAVY CLUTCH, IT NEEDS WORK ON THE TRUNK HINGES. ( ONE NEEDS REPLACED). I BOUGHT NEW ONES ON EBAY , JUST WAITING TO GET THEM. THE INSIDE OF THE CAR IS IN REALLY GOOD CONDITION, IT HAS TWO FIBERGLASS HIGH BACK RACING SEATS, ONE COVER NEEDS TO BE RESTITCHED ( THREAD GOT OLD AND CAME LOOSE. NO RIPS THE I CAN SEE.) THE CAR ALSO HAS NEW DRIVERS SIDE AND PASSENGER SIDE FLOOR PANS. THE BODY DOES NEED MINOR CHIPS FIXED HERE AND THERE AND PROBABLY A PAINT JOB IN THE FUTURE OR DRIVE AS IS.
IT HAS A CLEAR TITLE., AND A LOT OF LITERATURE ON THE CAR, WHICH INCLUDE PARTS LISTS YOU NEED TO SHOW HOW THE PUT A V6 OR V8 IN THE CAR. I ALSO HAVE SOME ORIGINAL ADS, AND A 1977 COPY OF VW MAGAZINE WITH A KELMARK ON THE COVER AND A NICE WRITE UP IN THE MAGAZINE. THE CAR IS SMALL AND LOW TO THE GROUND, VERY SPORTY, BUT I AM 6'2'' AND I FIT IN THE CAR COMFORTABLY.
THE CAR IS FOR SALE OR TRADE LOCALLY, SO I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO END THE AUCTION EARLY IF NEED BE.

I HAVE HAD A FEW QUESTIONS ON THE DRIVEABILITY OF THE CAR, SO ILL CLEARIFY. RIGHT NOW THE CAR NEEDS A WIRING ISSUE FIXED TO BE A DRIVER. 3 WIRES GOT CUT BECAUSE MY "HELPER" LET THREE WIRES GET PINCHED OFF WITH A WRENCH WHEN WE WERE TAKING BOLTS OUT SO I COULD REPLACE THE FLOOR PANS. WHEN I GOT THE CAR A COUPLE WEEKS AGO I FIRED IT UP, IT DEFINETLY NEEDED ONE OF THE CARBS REBUILT, IT IS NOW REBUILT AND BACK ON THE ENGINE AND IT PUMPS GAS FINE. I ALSO DROVE IT AROUND MY YARD AND THE CLUTCH FEELS FINE AND BRAKES WORKED GREAT AS WELL AS THE LIGHTS, I HAVE NOT STARTED IT SINCE THE CARB REBUILD BECAUSE OF THE WIRING ISSUE. I JUST HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHERE THE WIRES THAT GOT CUT GO, THEY ARE ALL THE SAME COLOR SO IM TRYING TO GET A WIRING DIAGRAM, I SHOULD HAVE THE PROBLEM FIXED AND THE CAR SHOULD BE RUNNING BY FRIDAY AT THE END OF THE AUCTON. SORRY FOR ANY CONFUSION, AND EMAIL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE, THANKS
