This car was built as a reliable "daily driver". The interior is in original "good" condition but not perfect. Seats were re-done before I bought it, they are in excellent shape, not leather but some sort of quality vinyl. Chrome and stainless trim are in original "good" condition but not perfect. This is an original California car, no rust or rot. Clean and solid throughout.

Known Issues:

-Paint is OK. Some small "bubbles", some fading, some clear coat failure. Looks good at about 20'

-Drivers door is slightly out of alignment when closed.

-Rear window has a small (drip drip) leak when you wash it. It was installed without the proper gasket (see trunk parts list)

-Back up (reverse) lights do not come on, maybe just be bulbs or connection in steering column.

-Steering column could use a rebuild, (all parts in trunk) 4-8 hours job depending on your skill level.

-Shift indicator light bulb not working. (see above steering column note)

-Installed headliner was cut to install missing "opera lights" and sharkfin, GPS, Sirius Satellite antenna. I have a new cut to size headliner ready to install in the trunk.
