This car is not a show car, and should be classified as a basic driver.  An older repaint of the Black Velvet color has long faded and begun to show it's imperfections.  There are rusty spots here and there on the car, and it's due for some body work and TLC.
Overall though, the car looks ok at a distance and drives straight down the road.  The interior has seen some use, but looks to be the original, save for the carpet which has been recently replaced with new.  The dash is in good shape and still boasts the original radio and gauges.  The automatic transmission shifts out nicely and the V8 moves the car down the road.
