This is a really nice car that would take very little to make it near-perfect.  Most of its needs are cosmetic.  I drive this car around Austin all the time.  It starts easily and has great power.

361 V8, New dash pad from Just Dashes, nice re-done steering wheel and donut, new dual exhaust system, slight custom glasspacks, rebuilt Teletouch with new motor, new Edelbrock 4bbl carb with new air cleaner (still have original Holley and air cleaner), baby Moon rims, new front side windows with proper logos/numbers, reverse lights work, new reproduction hood ornament, new correct antenna (needs to be installed, missing common-size nut), new semi-correct carpet (it's red, should be orange), new power steering ram (leaks a little somewhere still), new mostly correct paint (should have white top), 1958 Texas license plates, water temp gauge installed where compass would be (I have parts to a compass), suspension and shocks all redone recently (ball joint, bushings, shocks), steering repairs (idler arm, tie rods), new radiator hoses.

Needs trunk alignment and seal (I have the seal), seats are fine but they're red, Car was converted at some point to non-power brakes which work fine, back side windows could be replaced - they have small chips, all side windows need seals and anti-rattlers, one letter on scallop missing (S), radio/clock/odometer don't work and the wipers need attention.
