I'm new here

Post by mkraffert »

Hi,

I'm Mark. I live in Denver and restored this 68 XR7. It's been a labor of love. The man who bought it new passed away in 2000, and the car sat in a garage until 2013 when I got it. It's got 60k original miles with receipts to document the miles. Factory AC, AM 8 track (wish I still had it but he replaced it), disc brakes and factory cruise control. Everything worked on it when we got it, but it looked like it had been abandoned. Complete body and interior restoration, tune up, new brake pads, and a suspension rebuild. Still working on the little details, but really proud of her.

Beautiful car! Vinyl top looks great with that color, perfect stance and nice wheel/tire combo.
