Picked this gem up for $1,300 with a good title. Runs, and drives with the 215 aluminum Rockette motor and a three on the tree. 31,000 miles. Plans are to lower the rear 1", and the front 2-3", put 14 or 15" steelies with dog dishes and black wall bias plys on, gloss black body with little to no body modifications and making the interior look 100% stock and brand new. As far as the exterior goes I need to make some patches for both front fenders on the body lines, inner wheel wells, bottoms of the rear quarters, and the rockers. Otherwise it is pretty solid. Mechanically I'll be doing new brake lines, maybe discs in the front, new bushings and whatnot, and whatever else I find out it needs. Trunk floor is nice and solid. Needs floor pans. At least it came with a purple club though! Back seat and door panels look great, they just need cleaned. The front seat will need reupholstered, and the headliner needs a little love. Dash, and steering wheel are in nice shape. Steering wheel has two little cracks that I'll fix. I think for now I'll keep the 215 and then after it's on the road for a bit (if I don't sell it) I'll drop in a 330 or something with a floor shifter, and different rear. I have a bike building business and I'm pretty swamped with that right now, but I'm hoping to set one full day a week aside to work on this. I'm hoping to be able to drive it to the Jalopy Drags in September completely finished. If anyone has any information, parts sources, inspirational photos, or anything for these F 85s post them up... they're hard to find anything on. Pretty cool little cars though.
