INTERIOR DESCRIPTION:
New interior includes both seats, a rebuild of the front seat, new door panels and foot panels.

VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
The car interior and exterior is in excellent condition and is excellent running condition. It was stripped of all paint 30 years ago but it still looks brand new. It is impressively straight and gaps are good. The engine was overhauled at the time of the painting and chroming were done. The aluminum head has been replaced. Work done between 2016 and 2023 include the addition of a new electronic fuel pump backup, a rebuild of the hydraulic window system, a rebuild of the entire brake system and Coker radial whitewall tires Within the last 18 months I had installed new custom made heavy duty spring assisted shocks on all four wheels made by A-1 Shock Absorber Co, new spark plug wires, new spark plugs, new battery, new distributor, rebuilt the carburetor, replaced the original air filter with a Prof-Flow Air cleaner but still retained the original air filter, new head gasket. Possibly have forgotten an item or two. According to the former seller the car was in the same family since new until he purchased it in 2016.
