Teletouch works perfectly.  This car was previously restored/refreshed and is in excellent running condition.  This is a SoCal car and the body, frame, etc. is in very good condition.  There is no rust or repairs, or evidence of an accident that I can tell.  It has been repainted, and the job is good, but not show.  I would rank it #3 on the show circut, but it drops jaws wherever she goes.

The chrome and brightwork is in super nice shape, all gauges (except temp) work fine.  The lights, interior lights, courtesy lights, dash gauge lights, turn signals all work fine.  There is an aftermarket temp gauge under the dash.  She idles in traffic at about 190 with no overheating.  She starts, stops, and runs down the road just fine.

Known issues includes a leak from the power steering and the oil pan.  Also, the rear diff leaves a bit of a drop.  Leave her sitting for a few days and you get 3 spots in a row.  Not bad, but really annoys me.  There's a scratch on the wood panel rear passengers side which is not really noticeable unless you know it's there.  Someone has touched it up with paint and it looks ok.  The windshield wipers do not work.  There is a tear on the driver's side arm rest, but the rest of the interior is really nice.

I purchased this car from a West Coast dealer.  Not the show car I expected, or paid for, but a really nice #3 driver car.  Very rare here on the East Coast as well to find such a solid, original rust free car.

I was given the history that it was restored about 6 years ago, all seems to be consistent but I have no documentation to go with it.
