I'm a very happy 80 owner, but I've been seriously considering getting a 40 as well. I know very little about them, other than what I've only recently read online. Based on some of the reading I've done it sounds like a mid 70s or later would be an ideal first time 40. Sound about right? There is one selling locally, because of the very wide range of pricing I see online I really don't know if this one is a priced right or not. Comments would be appreciated... I'm a complete 40 newbie here. 1975 120k all stock hard & soft top repainted last year, no known rust well maintained "very solid mechanically" Known problems are: Speedometer doesn't work Driver side door handle need to be replaced seats need to be recovered Asking $7900, negotiable. I have not seen the vehicle yet.
