Just how many Type 75 are left in the states?
Hi Everyone, I own a 77' Elite 503 that I've been working on for the last couple years. To my amazement, I found out that there are two more right here in my home town of Wellsboro, PA a town of only 3,000 people.
The owner has come down with Parkinson's and I have an opportunity to purchase these two. Both are 503 Elite's a 74' and a 77'. Both are red and need of work.
My big question is how many are left here? I've scoured the internet without much luck. The best I've found was from a fellow named Dunc on TLF. As of a few years ago he new of 9 registered in the entire country.
I'm thinking I'm going to take a leap of faith and buy these two and do something with them not sure what yet. Lol, but I just can't see letting them go.
One had an engine fire that burned up a whole bunch of wiring, the other is in running order but hasn't been used in 10 years. They come with a pile of parts, some hot cams, Dellorto's , rare performance intake etc. Interiors are in very good condition, headlights are even staying down on the one.
Any one have a feel for these as far as marketability?
BTW I've just had the seats redone for my Blue 77'. Both front and rears, they came out awesome.
