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.
