The car has been sitting in a Climate controlled Basement in North Carolina for the last 20 Years. The body is good with very little rust (a few small spots on the passenger side of the Floor board will require a patch). The trunk floor is good with only surface rust and there is no rust in the frame or rocker Panels. The hard top is missing the Garnish Moldings, and it is missing some of the lower body Moldings. The original hood has been replaced by a fiberglass hood. The interior is decent shape, and the wood trim around the windshield and back window is nice. It is missing its original radio. The engine will run while Spraying Carburetor cleaner in the throttle body, but it won’t run on its own. The fuel system will need gone through (The fuel pump works and pumps fuel but it is not getting to the injectors). I have not tried to drive the car so it will need winched on a trailer.

These cars are getting extremely harder to find these days. I am selling this car with NO RESERVE so please look at the pictures and feel free to email or call 865-621-4012 with any questions.
