How is it registered? What does the title say? has it been registered in Cal. ? Have you checked on the possibility of getting it on the road without flaming hoops? 1965 has a link pin front end. If you plan to drive on freeways you may want taller gears in a 1641. Had one , they will get you down the road but not with a lot of gusto. Drive the car.
I would love to see you buy it and be happy, but none of us want you to get scrod.
Please let us know how it goes. We're pullin' for ya.
