High-quality restoration completed approximately 2003.  Car was originally Sahara Beige with brown standard interior, and is now authentic Cadet Blue with SMS blue vinyl and black pebble cloth interior.  Seats, headliner and carpet are new, with re-conditioned original door panels and near-perfect package shelf.  New glass, window channels and weatherstripping were installed.  The dash and all interior metal pieces were removed and painted.  All exterior brightwork was removed and polished, outstanding chrome on grille, bumpers, tail lights, etc.  New trunk floor was welded in, and a small amount of body rust was replaced with patch panels (no bondo anywhere on car).  The paint was wet-sanded/buffed and is outstanding.

Many mechanical repairs/upgrades were made to make this a reliable driver.  Everything works, including radio and clock.
