    This is a true barn/shed find.
    I bought this car out of an estate sale so I don’t have any info on it and I’m selling it as is.
    This car was in a garage 2 miles from me. Car used to set outside under a tarp for several years. I used to drive by this house every day on my way to work and probably 15-20 years ago the car disappeared. I found out it was pushed in this makeshift shed/garage until I bought it. Car is in a lot better shape then what I was guessing it would be. Has the usual rust in all the usual places. I do know it has been repainted at some point in its life and the front clip came off of a brown car. I do have a clean title for the car and will come with a bill of sale also. I do not have any keys to the car and had to drill out the trunk lock to clean it out.

    Only reason I’m not keeping this car is cause I have 2 other Sun coupe’s I’m currently working on and don’t have the time or funds to do another at this point. This car is in to good of shape for me to part out. I would love to see someone take this and restore it. I also have a complete 455 I would let go with it for the asking price. I don’t have any info on the 455 other then what the guy told me I got it from. He was a demolition derby guy and said it ran before I got it. But it’s been outside covered and I would recommend going through it. I would like to get $3,500 out of everything. Any questions please call or text me at +17855542906. Thank you

    Also the tires that are on the car are not the ones it will come with. The original tires were shot and would not hold air. It will come with a set of 14” mags.

    Also I haven’t been able to get the drivers side door open either. Someone in the past had tried cause the door panel was half off. Not sure why it won’t open. As far as motor and transmission go I don’t know anything about them at all. The steering wheel lock had been removed at some point and the transmission shifter was unhooked underneath at some point. I’m guessing they lost the keys before it was put in the shed.

    Do you believe the vinyl top is original? Not the folding portion, but the vinyl thats glued to the roof. Are there seams running front to rear along the sides of the folding portion? Can you get a measurement of how far down the A-pillar the seam is there? thanks. Please forward the VIN also for the registry

    Im not 100% sure if it is or not. But I believe it could be the factory top. I have 3 Sun coupes at the moment and I don’t really know if any are registered or not. But I’m guessing my yellow one mite be from when Matt Gordon owned it. The vin# on this one is 4D37H2H136470. Any info on how to check the registry would be great.

    I don't have anything under Matt Gordon's name. I can check with the VIN's. I don't publish lists or have a specific website for the registry.
