Well I now own the El Tigre. It's in decent shape and runs good but I'll need to find some parts for it.

The hood has been damaged in front and has had a repair
job done to it, also there is a hole cut in the top of the hood just behind
the windshield. My guess is that a previous owner may have done this
to improve cooling of the free air engine in warm weather. Along
with that, the fiberglass belly pan also has a small hole in it and will
also have to be repaired in the future.

Seat is in really good shape with only a few minor bad spots other than the bottom fabric. Only problem is that it's actually from a 74 El Tigre. The 73's had a diamond pleat pattern.
The Dash is cracked and a previous owner has installed switches for thumb warmers in it. Like the seat, the dash is also from a 74 Model. Along with that, the original kill switch with the tether assembly has been replaced (inside blue box) . I've got the correct tether and now I have to find the switch itself. Surprisingly, the correct kill switch was also used on the John Deere 295/S racing sleds. Chrome gas tank is in really good shape with only minor rust around the filler neck.
The original clutch has been replaced by a Quik Shift clutch.
