This gorgeous California Bird is better then it appears. Has major improvements. If you ever tried getting in or out of a 2 seater bird, you know its not easy. This one has been fitted with an original looking steering wheel with one big difference- its smaller and on a tilt column! It makes getting in and out no problem. They were able to make the wheel smaller because this one was fitted with a modern rack amp; pinion power steering that is effortless. It also has been upgraded with modern power disc brakes, upgraded cooling, radial tires and more. This is a clean California car loaded with features. **I just drove it and loved it.
