This car has been stored since approximately 1999.  It's got the original drivetrain, and the brakes were recently redone.  The body panels are clean with no rust.  The bumpers show some minor pitting, but nothing major.  The stainless is all in place and in very good condition.  The upper dash trim has warped around the radio speaker.  All the glass is in place and in nice shape, with the exception of a broken wing window on the passenger side.  The rubber and felt is in place, but quite worn.  Very complete, with hubcaps, jack, spare tire, sunvisors, etc.  We spent two days rubbing body panels and shining chrome.  This car looks very good right now, and restored would be beautiful.
