This car was found on the web with no info in 2002. It was thought it was possibly an early picture of mine(ST1103) or Karen's(ST1116) but under closer review it has bumper stickers on the back bumper that mine looks to have never had and the third tail light does not match the one on STA116.

This car looks to be very clean, it was found in a for sale add with vague information. I recall he was asking $9,800 for it at the time, he also said it had a stock motor but 150 HP. dry.gif

Found this car on Ebay, Indyman made a trip to IL. to check it out and found the bracing under the car had severe rust and the rust had started on the body. He felt the car was somewnat of a lost cause and did not make an offer on the car. The car sold for $1,525

Seller posted comment:
I bought this car from my brother 3 years after he had it customized in California by R. Straman Coachbuilders. I'm not into car restoration, which it is in need of. The doors don't line up properly and was informed that the car side frames need to be reinforced. It also has a very speratic occurance of the engine starving for gas (like a vapor lock), had 4 local mechnics look at it and they can't seem to figure out the problem. Other wise it runs great and a lot of fun to drive with 47 to 50 MPG (last time checked). Drove in summer and garage kept during winter. As the potos show there are also some body and interior matters that need attention to get this unusual machine back to par. Also needs new speakers (radio works), dash vent deflector, Cig lighter, clutch and brake pedal pads. Matainance as been performed according to factory recommendations (service, timing belt, ect.) New engine ignitor installed last year, and tires replaced 2 years ago. The purchaser will be resposible for the pick of the car from my home and payment by certified check, at which time I will sigh over the title. Again this car needs some tender loving care, but will return the same with driving fun and a lot of on lookers!

Found this car for sale on craigslist in February 2009, she did not reply to emails about the car for weeks. She finally sent me an email saying she got so many questions she just stopped replying(not a good way to sale a car). Not sure if she still has the car but would like to find out something.

As of 11-22-09 this car has jumped in price yet again, the owner has been seeing the Stramans for sale lately and decided the car was worth more then he/she was asking. The man on the phone said he replaced the support beam under the car because of rust, when told the floor pan probably needed attention he then said oh ya I changed that too. Then said the only rust on the car is what you see coming through the rear arches and decided the car is now for sale for #3,800.

I just spoke with the owner and he said he bought the car from a tow lot because he thought his girlfriend/wife would like it. She hates it. Time to sell. He says it runs perfect and has no rust. He says it is a great car. SOMEBODY BUY THIS THING!!!!!Sale price was $1,950

Erik bought this car and picked it up 8/30/2009 then drove it to Los Angelas to store it for a few months before driving it back to Indiana. The car is rust free and in decent condition, it has had a minor front end accident that will require a little work to get it all back to perfect. He said the car drives and runs good but idles at 1500 rpms(carb or vacuum issue), it has had the maintenance neglected over the years so it is in need of some tcl.

I just got an email from the seller of this Phoenix car. He dropped his price to $4995. Looks like it's a good time to make a deal. Email is jerrypolick(at)yahoo.com
