PAINT NAME:
Emerald Metallic / Moonstone
INTERIOR DESCRIPTION:
Dark green nylon over light green nylon pattern, needs complete re- upholstering. Needs full headliner, but bows are fine. Hole in floor at driver's side,common problem I'm sure. The rest of the floor seems solid. Needs new carpeting and backing. Door panels are in very good restorable condition. Trunk is solid, trunk interior is original and is in repairable condition for the most part
EXTERIOR DESCRIPTION:
The body is rough but complete. The paint scheme was reversed and I'll be correcting that. The back of the roof has a small dent that can be repaired, there's also a small dent over the driver's door. All the body parts are original.

VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
Just beginning. I bought it from a gentleman who purchased it and realized that he had too many projects and too many cars in his yard. He bought it from a guy in Hudson NH. There is also a Pennsylvania Inspection sticker on it circa 1976. The fuel pum
is electric and that will suffice until I replace the mechanical one with a rebuilt. I just looked at the fuel pum
and it is "Mickey-Moused" on the outside frame rail..the wiring has bare spots on it. The door sills are a bear to remove. I've put PB Blaster on the screws but they are tough to budge.

Marked as SOLD by Ozstatman 18th August 2014. See this post - http:/
