Starts, runs and drives well.  This car has been in dry storage for 20 years.
Has new master cylinder and brake cylinders, and new fuel pump.  Still needs carburetor rebuild and probably needs a full tune up.
The 352 ci engine; column shift automatic transmission and differential all appear to be in good condition.  The U-joints sound a little clunky.
The dash, instruments and door panels all look good.  The headliner looks pretty good but has some stitching coming loose.  The front seat shows some wear.  All the glass is excellent.  The floor pans seem fine and the trunk seems solid.
The body is straight with no dents or signs of major repair.  The stainless trim is bright and has only a few dings.  All stainless is there except for a small molding at the rear bottom of the rear quarter panel (you don't notice it's missing unless you look for it).
Bumpers and grill are very nice except for a small quarter-sized dent in the front bumper.  A tail light lense and a parking light lense are cracked.
The paint is probably an old repaint and looks pretty good.  This is a good looking, solid car that can be tuned up and driven as is.
