California car.  New Ember Red and Silver Metallic paint.
Heater and wiper motor are not working, and needs a new headliner.  Passenger side door panel is a little ratty.  Now the good: Runs excellent, Teletouch works perfectly.  Transmission was rebuilt, brakes and tires are in very good condition.  No power anything.  Radio delete, clock delete, no body holes for antenna or back-up lights.  Some chrome has been replated, and the chrome on the front side grilles is starting to peel.  Bumpers have the original chrome on them.  No dents.  Has original taillight lens and the glass is in very good condition.  Front windshield and rear window have new rubber seals, trunk deck lid also has a new seal.  Tags are current Calif.  Has new dual exhuast also.

Car has 130,000 original miles on it.  Not sure when or if the engine was rebuilt but it runs great.  Just took a 400 mile trip with it a few weeks ago with no problems.  Charging system works perfect, runs cool.  New hoses and thermostat.  New black carpet has been installed with padding.  Use as a daily driver, drive it anywhere.  This car is 50 years old, but it's in a heck of a lot better condition than I'm in.
