I had planned to restore the car back in '76 and I was driving it to and from school at that time.  It has been sitting in a machine shed until today.  I pulled it out to tear down the shed.

All glass except the driver's side back glass is good.  I was unable to get the hood open to take a picture but I know it has the original motor in it, I installed a new 850 Holley on it in 1976.  All exterior trim pieces are there.  Some rust on rocker panels and front clip around lights.  Hood, trunk deck and both doors are in good shape.

Automatic on the tree, interior is trashed, floor pan has some holes rusted through.  This car was owned previously by my parents so it has been around here a long time.  I am in the process of cleaning up the place and want to get rid of the car, hate to see it go to the crusher but I can not keep it around.
