Up for auction is a very rare 1982 Sebring kit car. Instead of doors, the entire canopy lifts...very cool! Powered by a VW 1600cc engine with dual Dellorto carbs and a 4 speed manual VW transmission. The Sebring is an updated version of the Sterling, with more headroom, flip up headlights and an electric canopy lift.

HISTORY

This Sebring was completed, inspected and issued a title in Indiana in 1982. It was driven just 8000 miles. In 2003 it was brought to Wisconsin. It had some wiring issues (mice) and the current owner removed much of the wiring and decided to "freshen up" the Sebring, but never finished the project. It sat for more than 5 years under cover

CONDITION

Cosmetically: Probably one of the sharpest cars you'll ever see. The body is thick high quality Fiberglass. It has a thick gelcoat finish (like a boat) not painted. Mechanically the car needs to be completed to be road worthy. You will need to trailer or tow dolly the car home. The engine turns over freely with good compression but has not been started in years. It has some old gas in it but the carbs appear very clean (almost like new) when looking down their throats. All the wiring will need to be redone. It needs carpeting, tires, new seats or at least seat covers, ignition switch. The windshield is excellent with no cracks, but the side passenger window is cracked and the driver side window nees to be attached. It comes with the gauges shown in the pics and slots for more. It comes with no keys. I hooked up a battery to make sure the engine turned over well and it does, I was also able determine the canopy motors operated, but did not lift the top as it may be locked and I have no keys. Headlights are not connected but the parts are included. The master cylinder is dry, emergency brake works. We have a clear Wisconsin title. It's titled as a 1982. but it has a short VIN so I had to list it on ebay as a 1979 to avoid the ebay VIN error code. Please familiarize yourself with all auction terms, ask questions and bid accordingly. Thanks.
