Default Jimbo's Amazon: 1964.5 220S Project

So after 2 years of "purchasing" the car (well, 23 months to be exact), I finally was able to get down to FarmUse's gorgeous home in VA with PayPal in hand to get the car home. The discussion started when I began searching for a more appropriate daily driver to replace my '71 142S. Somehow, we both thought this would be a better replacement than something with fuel injection.

Bad news- a young ******* got his hands on another pushrod car.

Late 64 (I think) 220S (Titled as a '65, weirdly enough the VIN on the title is given as "15**9B", though the chassis number is just "15**9")
White/red interior
Originally a B18B/M40, now a B20B (worked over so I'm told) and M40
Pretty decent body- was a California car until ~2000, rust through in weird spots on panels
Straight -64 nose

On the trailer:

What it needs and order of operations:
- A bath
- Fuel tank drained, cleaned, sealed (will be done by local radiator shop)
- SU's cleaned/resealed (will eventually have Ike at Curto's build me a beautiful pair)
- Fuel hose replaced
- Drizzle oil over top end, crank with plugs out to clear any ATF left in the chambers from when it was regularly lubed while sitting
- Tune up
- Charging system (probably SWEM Delco 10si swap)
- Complete brake overhaul (porterfield pads, stainless soft lines, new/rebuilt calipers, maybe a dual master conversion)
- Suspension overhaul (Billies, sport springs?, bushings everywhere)
- Simons sport exhaust?
