Hello All,
Just found this 72' Sprint sitting since 82'. Only 23k miles. Original owner passed away and I was lucky enough to buy it.
Already I have found this forum to be a big help in getting her going. Thank you to all that take the time to contribute. Some day I hope to share also what I will have learned.
Sincerely, Jerry

Wow, looks like original Dunlop tires on her?
what a great find! reminds me of my Sprint purchase from its original owner as well.
