    Haha, my dad had an orange one with white stripes back when I was around 9 years old. We were just talking about that thing last weekend. He said he would get almost 40 mpg. My sisters hated it, they would hide in it so they wouldn't be seen by their friends..lol

    Yep has AC, not sure what radio. The rear tires are on another car but come with it. Rubber is decent on all they just need some air.

    I do too. Should come in quite handy sometimes. I think it adds look to the car, without it they look weird.

    We actually had one of these in the family. Take it for a 2 hour spin and tell me what you think of it. Very uncomfortable seat and driving position as I recall.

    Still has the emissions info sticker on it. Found out the car was a 1976 instead of 74.

    Radio and heater/AC controls. Not sure if that is a 8 track or not?

    That looked like a really neat package and I bet they are hard to find. Guy I am buying this from had a Levi Gremlin about 15 years ago.
