Found in Miami, Oklahoma with 1971 Wisconsin plates and title.  It's got 82,000 original miles on it.  Needs to be awakened from long term storage.  I should have it going this year (2006).

Engine turns freely by hand.  I have not tried to start it, and it would need the fuel system cleaned out before anything else.  It has no brakes from sitting.
Outside the car is very nice for its age.  All emblems, lenses are there and not broken.  Inside the car is all original.  Padded dash and visors, door panels, headliner, back seat are very nice.  Front seat has minor wear on the driver's side.
Overall a nice original car to restore.
