The rear wheels are driven through a 4-speed manual transmission while stopping power is delivered through 4-wheel drum brakes. The seller notes damage to the Monza exhaust tips. A recent service is said to have been carried out, and a host of service documentation will accompany the sale.
This sale will include a clean title and service documentation.
The seller would like you to know: “I have owned the Speedster for the past 3 years and enjoyed every moment of it with my kids and the miles of smiles it has brought to our family. The previous owner was an elderly gentleman who owned it for over a decade and kept every single record/receipt in addition to writing stories of his journeys along the way. I have always properly maintained it and was always stored in my garage. To the next owner, this Speedster is turn-key and won't have to do anything to take it on its next adventure. Please feel free to reach out for a Pre-Purchase inspection or if you have any questions. Thank you”
