71 pinto runabout

PLEASE READ THE WHOLE AD BEFORE CONTACTING ME OR ILL BE RUDE PLEASE KEEP STUPID COMMENTS TO YOURSELF THANKS. so im testing the water to see what kind of offers I can get on my pinto. I drive it rarely I keep it for a conversion piece. its a 1971. it s the runabout model. paint and inside is rough from setting in the az sun for 8 years straight without moving. only surface rust. all stock motor and trans rebuilt and gone through in jan 2013. everything works but gas gauge but I have the part to fit.

 motor is a 2.0 rebuilt using 90 percent NOS parts and for the non FORD fans like me the 2.0 was a German Ford motor which is way better than the USA Ford crap they make now. it does need the valves and carb adjusted from sitting it starts and runs but you can here the loose lifters. at the time of rebuild:
 bored 30 over
 10/10 rod and main bearings
 new timing belt and tensioner plus extra
 new alternator
 new voltage regulator
 new starter
 rebuilt head
 rebuilt distributor with extra points and condenser
 clean and flushed radiator
 carb and valves needs to be tuned because of sitting but still run and drives as is
 I do have the timing belt cover

 trans is the factory 4 speed
 all new seals
 gears and disc inspected and looked to be good
 new mounts
 new u joints

 the suspension can use attention due to sitting for 8 years in a field
 rack and pinion could use rebuilt
 could use new shocks
 has new tie rods, upper control arm bushings, upper ball joints and brakes on the front

 chevy front seats
 new headlight switch
 new high/low beam switch
 new break light switch
 sunpro tech/oil pressure/amp/ and coolant gauge still keeps that 70s look
 all new dash lights
 am/fm/cd (still have the factory uncut radio mount too)
 dash is cracked
 carpet shoot
 headliner is gone but still have the rods for it
 rubber seals are sun beat
 the gas gauge don't work due the brass float got a hole but I got a plastic one to replace it just haven't had time to put it in and the gas tank is full
 I do have uncut kick panels

 13in 5 spoke 70s rims fair tires if you pay full price I'll go have 4 brand new tires put on it or take off 200.
 I have 5 hub caps but only one steel rims
 all glass is good no cracks
 no major dents just little hail sizes one mostly in the fenders
 paint is sun baked
 all lights work including dome and back up lights
 setup for tow bar which I have

 this car runs and drives just as it sets could use some tuning only driven it twice in 2016. I have driven it to flagstaff and California many times less then 4000 or miles on it since ive did the motor work. don't let the looks fool you. make me a reasonable cash offer or trade looking at pre 67 vw in running driving shape, 87 or older chevy short bed, jeep xj or willys, 14-20ft enclosed trailer, 86 or newer 25ft or smaller travel trailer or motor home, boat, or what do you got

More Information
I might own one FORD but, I own a Chevy and a trailer.
