Was orginally a Northern Alabama car, shows just over 8,000 on the odometer.  Has some surface rust and hood needs to be straightened, otherwise body is in good shape.  The doors open and close as good as new, and the hinges are tight too.  All of the glass is in the car, but some of the door pieces need to be replaced.  The windshield has one small star crack, and the back is good.  As far as I can tell, everything is still on/with the car except for the wheel covers and the front fender/door letters, all other trim is still on the car.  Needs to have the interior redone, everything is still there except for the radio and clock.  Most of the headliner is still there.  I don't think the back seat was used much because the carpet is still in fair shape, and the upolstery on the seat bottom is still good and the back doors are difficult to pull open.  The engine ran last summer, but the carburetor needs to be rebuilt.  The gas tank needs to be drained and cleaned.  The car has straight tread bias-ply tires that look new, except for dry-rot cracking, and they still hold normal pressure.  There's even a spare on a matching rim in the trunk.  All of the lights work, even the turn signals and high beams.  All of the light lenses are in very good shape.  Last tag registration that was found on car in Alabama had expired in 1981.
