Engine: professionally rebuilt 1000 miles ago, new rebuilt crank, new cam, new pistons, rings, all bearings, hardened valve seats, all new valves, new oil pump, etc.
Transmission: no slippage, shifts slow into drive (possible weak pump or valve body).
Body: very solid and straight, no rust, car came originally from California and sat over 20 years in a museum in Nebraska before I bought it about 5 years ago.  Never driven in MN salt and snow.  Paint is over 30 years old, I started sanding some areas and temporarily primed them.  The only body work I can find on the car is on the right rear quarter panel.  Car must have been in a small fender bender in that area.  Missing letters and stainless on that panel, but I have them.  The rest of the stainless on the car is good.  Some of the chrome has slight pitting, nothing major.  All lights and turn signals work fine.  All glass is good except for a crack in passenger door flat glass.
Interior: seats are newly recovered in black tufted vinyl, dash is very good and all gauges and lights work, carpet is ok for a driver, headliner seams are coming loose.
Tires: brand new Uniroyal Tiger Paw radials with less than 1000 miles on them.
Brakes: very good with new shoes, power booster has a vacuum leak and needs to be replaced or rebuilt.
Car is registered with a permanent MN 1960 license plate and has a clear title.

The car should be trailered, towed or shipped due to the transmission & brake problems.  Gas tank is out of the car but runs on a can in the trunk.  Tank needs to be cleaned and coated.
