I started this project in 2006, but back problems stopped the progress.  A lot is done but more needs to be done.  It is pretty much a complete car, only missing the left rear doorway step plate, antenna, headlight switch and I believe that's all.
All side trim is good with minor dings on some but very useable (some extra pieces), bumpers are decent drivers, grille has minor pitting as other chrome does, taillights polished clean w/2 new old stock red lenses.  The windows are good but there's one chip spot on the windshield.  Body work is all done with base paint on all but the tailgate, but it is under a nice primer.  The right side door jambs and rear tailgate jambs are sprayed and cleared.  The floorboard needs patches.  Engine turned nice and tried to fire but the battery kept going down on me.  The fuel tank is boiled out and coated.

I hope someone can finish this car and proudly enjoy it.
