Car description

I was driving the car as of last fall... an issue with the left rear brake cylinder had me jack it and put it on stands to change the rear cylinder. The lug nuts were cross threaded, so I bought new studs and lug nuts without realizing that the hub needs to be pulled (and ideally replaced) to change studs (New hubs are available with studs in place for around 240 bucks for a pair). The axle nut came of fairly easily, however removing the hub is beyond my tool buying and patience thresholds.
SO BEWARE: To get the rear wheel back on to enable the car to be driven onto a trailer, I will have to cross thread the lugs back on (Unless you know of a better way) and the car will not be roadworthy! Just enough to drive it onto and back off a trailer where you and your awesome set of pullers and torches and know how will get the hub off and be back in business.
The good... the car runs and shifts and drives fine (When all four wheels are on it). Everything works... except for the little tape deck that the previous owner added.. I took the speaker out and will be removing the tape deck as well as it does not belong in the car. Even the horn, the turn signals (Trafficator), gauges, heater, wipers, lights etc... No major rust on the frame or body panels.
The car has been modified from stock... spin on oil filter, brake and clutch fluid reservoirs separate, positive ground electrical system and, as I discovered, a TR4 fuel tank instead of the standard TR3.
It has a new gas tank and fuel pump as well as new clutch master and slave cylinders.
Extra NEW parts I have: Water pump and pulley, aluminum radiator, thermostat, trunk seal, cooling system hoses, brake master cylinder, mirrors, brake lines, fuel lines. Many other smaller parts like brake shoe pins, zeus fasteners, seals and bolts for the water pump
Extra USED parts: Spare SET of carbs, the old clutch master and slave cylinders, old fuel pump and old gas tank.
There is a slow drip of a coolant leak (Hence all the cooling system parts) but it seems to be coming from the radiator petcock. I'll be draining the radiator and changing the petcock.
Any questions, just ask and I will check email at least once a day.
Local pick up only.
