This is a 99% rust free original complete Arizona car.  There is one small hole in the right-hand rocker that is not visable unless you crawl under, and there is also some blistering of the paint on the passenger side door that might be rust forming underneath, but the spot is no bigger than a quarter.  The car has been repainted at some point and is faded on the upper surfaces.  The interior was redone and it does not appear that original patterns or fabrics were used, but it looks very good.  Headliner is original and in perfect condition.  The only thing this car really needs bodywise is new rubber gaskets on all the glass, doors and trunk.  The passenger side front window is cracked but all the rest of the glass is good.  The odometer reads 102000.  Engine runs very well, and uses no oil.  Transmission shifts OK, too.  I had new dual exhaust pipes custom bent as well.  The previous owner replaced the carb with an aftermarket Holley 4bbl.  He also changed the wipers to electric and replaced the Treadle-Vac unit with a manual master cylinder.  I think he still has the original booster and cylinder but it needs rebuilding.  The car stops OK as is so I left it alone.  This is an excellent driver as is or a prime candidate for a complete restoration if that's what you want.  Every piece of trim and script is there.
