It wasstripped to bare metal and sealed before being painted which is when the 4 inch fiberglass harwood hood was installed. Almost no bondo anywhere on the car. Paint jobs not perfect but with a good wash and wax it looks pretty sharp yet. Interior has new carpet and headliner along withfront bucket seats from an 80s Camaro. All autometer gauges. Almost new tires on original 68 corvette rally wheels. Car needs a speedometer cable which I don't have and it needs some of the exterior trim put on which I do have including the installationclips. Car also comes with an extra set of bumpers and door glass, plus a bare nose piece from a 78 and a box of other small miscellaneous interior and exterior pieces. I've owned this car for 10 years and had several parts cars during the build purchased with a bad head gasket in the original v6from an older lady who told me the mileage was correct but I have no way of proving that.Its definitely one of the cleanest Wisconsin G bodys I've ever seen before it was painted. I don't drive it much anymore which is the reason for selling.It runs and drives great and I still make sure to run it occasionally to keep everything loose but I don't have time to enjoy it anymore.
