The condition is a low 4 to high 5.  The gas tank rotted and the trunk pan is full of holes, but the floor pans are intact.  The driver and passenger windows are cracked.  I ran the engine when I got it and it ran great.  I took the intake manifold off to clean it up and to fix the distributor.  I have the new gaskets, fuel pump, distributor, wheel cylinders, timing chain and gears, and some rubber brake lines.  The interior looks to be original with replaced carpet.  Every emblem and moulding is there and is complete.
When I ran the car the A/C worked as did the radio.  The frame needs to be addressed as there are some holes in it.  The inside of the quarter panels and trunk are excellent with no rust.  The dash is excellent as well.  The chrome needs refreshing but is straight.  Virtually no dings in the doors or mouldings.  Driver's door has small dent at back edge.  Stainless trim is nearly ding-free except the left quarter trim has been bent near the door.  I do have a replacment for one of them (original).
