I wish I had pics but my old 70 v code runner set level with air shocks, 50 series tires on the back and the T bars cranked all the way up.

In the late 70-s I never gave the high ground clearance a second thought.

I like the car myself. As mentioned it has been for sale for quite some time. Every time I look at that engine compartment I cringe at that wiring. I would be scared to even start it for fear of it burning to the ground.

I think it would need basically a total resto save the exterior paint, I am guessing if you threw about $15k at it you'd have a pretty cool street machine.

I think my car is as high as you can get a stock front end on a is also straight out of the 1970's. First when I got it and how it looks now.
