Notes:
Has new electronic ignition and new Holley 4 bbl carb. Car is in very good condition from a prior restoration. Minor transmission leak, haven’t had a chance to locate.
No dents or dings. Older repaint job, overall good – no rust. Recently re-chromed the hooded side view mirrors, side body chrome is excellent – Chrome decorations on lower sides of the roof need restoration. Bumpers are in decent condition with a small area on the rear bumper where it appears someone tried to pull the car by hooking something to it – driver side front bumper has some peeling on the underside.
All glass is complete – passenger side front door window has small crack in upper front.
Prior re-upholster – still nice, no front seat kick panels, but I have templates cut out for covering. Teletouch transmission works well, 50K+ unverified mileage on odometer, radio works on one station.
