This car is a driver, not a show car/trailer queen.
The car looks nice with no super obvious blemishes. The paint job is over 20 years old, but still looks nice with minor blemishes. No visible rust on the body. Panels are solid and straight. Trunk pan is clean. Some small paint chips around exhaust tips. Chrome is still in nice condition but shows some age. Window glass is good, looks original. Rear window has some light scratches.
The interior generally looks nice, some age, but not beat or torn up. Seats are nice, not split or torn. Rug looks nice. Dash pad looks very nice, but has a couple small repairable holes where someone had mounted something on the dash. The dash is not split on the top, which is rare for an original. Door panels are nice. Instruments work except for fuel gauge. The radio is intact but does not work. Rim-Blow Horn recently stopped working.
Under Carriage:
Generally, looks good, just some road wear. No signs of rust. The exhaust headers have very low miles on them, but they show some surface corrosion which happened while the car was in storage. They have plenty of life left in them--it's only cosmetic.
This correct warranty replacement block has only about 1,000 miles on it. It has a lot of power and no signs of wear. The carburetors have recently been completely rebuilt, runs great. The clutch was new with the engine, so it shifts smoothly, no transmission problems. New battery and new starter. Engine compartment is generally clean, no signs of leaks.
It drives great, no problems, no weird sounds. Lots of power, sounds mean.
No warranty, sold as-is where-is. If you have any questions, please ask. If you want to talk to me in person about the car, send me a message and we can talk.
