Reliable driver. I regulatory drive it to events 100+ miles from home.Interior is complete, no missing parts. No rips, tares, or stains on the seats. All the stainless trim around the windows is in nice shape. The car has solid floors and trunk, except for one poor quality floor pan repair in the passenger side foot well. I was told by guy that sold the car to me that the paint and interior was done by a previous owner. He had the car for 12 years, I have it for 16 years, so that was at least 28 years ago. The paint has a great shine to it as its done in lacquer.

Now for the problem areas. The paint is bubbling on the lower part of the quarters, sills, lower front fenders, rear bumper filler panel. There is a rust spot on the driver side sill at the corner of the sill plate. Some chips on the hood and doors, paint blister on the trunk lid, some crazing on part of the hood. Body crack at base of C pillar on driver side. Oil drip at rear of the engine, transmission fluid drip at front of TH350. The dash clock and the factory AM radio do not work. The headliner is starting to get loose above driver side window. There are rust holes under the lip of the hood and trunk lids. There is one poorly done floor panel patch in the driver side foot well. The weather stripping is dry and cracked. Factory A/C is not working, all parts either are on the car or come with the car.

I can email more high resolution pictures, including problem areas, if you contact me with your email address. The car is being sold where is, as is, with no warrantees stated or implied.

I recommend all bidders come to view the car in person if possible. Note, I will not take the car out of the garage for a test drive if it is raining or the roads are wet! If you want to talk about the car on the phone, send me your name, phone number, and a good time to call and I will contact you.
