The paint is almost entirely original and in excellent condition. As these cars often did, the paint on the hood
would chip easily from rocks thrown up on the road. To make the hood appear as nice as the rest of the car, I had
an expert painter to paint only the hood and the two wedges behind the rear tires and he was able to match it
perfectly with the fenders so we did not have to blend. There is only one small blemish (ding) on the car, which
is on the passenger fender in front of the door. I included a picture of it. It is so small that I had a hard
time adjusting the camera so that you could see it in a picture. The metal rims around the fog lights are slightly
oxidized as well. This is very difficult to notice.
The interior is very nice. I believe there is a very small pick in the left side back of the driver's seat and the
metal around the cigarette lighter in the dash is slightly oxidized. Other than that, the interior is as flawless
as you could possibly expect. The gauges, AC, heat, and radio all work, with the exception of a buzz in the right
rear speaker, which probably needs to be replaced from age. There are no warning lights or engine lights
illuminated on the dash, and there have not been in the past 8 years while I have owned the car.
The top and the workings of the top all function as they should. The top does not have any rips or tears and only
the window shows any evidence of age. The window is a little hazy, but it is not objectionable and does not take
away from the car in my opinion.
The engine compartment is in amazing condition for the age of the vehicle. It shows very well.
The car drives very nicely and is very much like driving a modern car. One of the only non OE items on the car,
the mufflers, give the car a good, deep throaty rumble and are not overly loud or obnoxious. Please e-mail me with
any question you have and I will give the best answers I can. At that point, if you are seriously interested in
the car, we can talk about it over the phone. Even though the buyer will be responsible for the shipping charges,
I will be glad to assist in meeting the shipping company to load the car.
