Someone didn't proof read the text in the auction, says it has power windows.

Does it have one of your EFI systems installed?

Instead of being part of the problem, be part of a successful solution.

If someone was to want it added after purchase, would that be feasible?
Costs associated with said Conelec system?

It would be feasible. Right now, I believe there is only one source for the system.

 ;)

My thought process goes like this, original cars with original EFI systems are more valuable than cars without the system.

I am looking to buy a car, so it is not in my best interest to raise the prices.

I have demonstrated the parts are available and it can be done (twice)

The other thing going for me is the costs to recreate the system probably make it cost prohibitive.

On the outside chance my wife reads the forum, we probably shouldn't discuss the costs associated with this project in open forum. But let’s call it substaintial.

There was a 1969 GT350 at MCACN a couple of years back claiming a similar heritage

It looked pretty nice, but apparently if it had the fuel injection nobody seemed to be around to answer any questions
It’s amazing how many one offs and engineering cars still exist

It does not have the EFI

Currently 68#101 and Craig Jackson’s Green Hornet are the only original EFI cars with working systems
