Interior Information
INTERIOR CODE:
INTERIOR DESCRIPTION: The car sat for many years in the Arizona desert so there is remarkably little rust but the plastic, and rubber is all fried. The pressure in the electro-hydraulic power windows dropped causing the windows to open to the elements which pretty much destroyed the wood window frames. The window frames have been re-veneered and re-finished [Mar 2011]. Woodgraining on dash is shot. Headliner literally blew away when the car was trailered to KC.
