Petal Yellow and Snow White was recently repainted.  Interior has been redone in the original style and color using modern fabrics, but switched to black and silver (was originally buff).  Brakes rebuilt about five years ago, still work perfectly.  Engine was rebuilt three years ago, transmission was rebuilt this summer.  Other improvements include:

Mechanically this car is in good dependable shape, and it is a real head-turner.  The few cosmetic issues it has include: scratches on passenger side windshield; rust on lower rear bumper near exhaust pipe; a little paint lift on lower doors due to bad body prep; poorly installed headliner; missing kick panels.

I set this car up to keep and drive daily, and even used it last year as a daily commuter.  It is a nice car and a comfortable ride, and very dependable.
