Please note this car runs great and is fine like it is but in my opinion could be better with a few improvements as follows:
Needs aheadliner, Two missing grill teeth. Vent windows work but are sticky. Right exhaust doughnut leaks. Brakes work well but coulduse a proper 2-person bleeding. I work by myself andgravity bledthem. No spare or jack.Window channels are brittle and could be replaced.Needs rubber door seals.Horn does not work.Roof sun visor and skirts were removed by previous owner. Dome light does not work.
