Location: St. Louis, Missouri

Condition: Drives very well
Originality: All parts are factory authentic for the car Accessories included: unknown Notes:
It is in very good condition for 45 years old and shows it's good care. The automatic transmission was rebuilt 2 months ago. It has wide whitewall tires in good condition.
I was told when I bought it, it was used as a prop car in the popular television series "American Dreams". It spent it's life (until I bought it) in Oregon and southern California, which explains it's solid body. The interior shows very well and I believe it to be totally original. Original paint and body without rust or panel replacement. It does need a couple of items: New windshield and carpeting. I have the new windshield rubber gasket and I have a new carpet in the box and both go with this car. The only other item I know it needs is a new exhaust system. It has a few dings and paint chips from age, but the body is sound and the stainless and chrome is decent.
