It was purchased from California with a California title.  The previous owner said that the engine was rebuilt along with the 2 speed automatic transmission.  By the way this car starts and drives I do not doubt him.  The car has been driven approximately 1500 miles since the rebuild.  There are no signs of past rust damage.  The front end was rebuilt with new front springs.  The tires are bias ply with approximately 1500 miles on them also.
The chrome is good but not excellent, as the rear bumper is peeling (I guess a lousy rechrome job as the rest of the bumper is fine).  Rear light chrome bezels appear to be like new with no signs of pitting.  The trunk lock broke and I have the replacemet that will go with the car.  The hooded mirror and antenna are off the car and will go with the car.  This car also has an electric fuel pump.  The intake manifold was upgraded to facilitate a 4-barrel carburetor which improves the performance.  The top is new and comes with the convertible top boot in turquoise.  The upholstery has no rips or tears and appears like new.  New matching spare tire is included, with the jack.  Paint is good, stainless is good.

The AC blows cold air however I have had to charge it twice over the past six months and was not able to find the leak even with dye.  The steering wheel needs to be repainted and the engine compartment detailed.
