This very sharp example was actually restored two owners ago in late 1995 in total bare body, rame-off style. A handful of pictures were included. It traded hands only once to the former Summerfield, lorida owner who purchased in April 1997 and took splendid care of it ever since! The paint survives so remarkably well, ne would likely guess it is only days old! It remains super smooth with a high shine and free of any major imperfections making it a strong candidate for showing with utter confidence! The same can be said for the chrome bright work and interior remaining clean and free of any deterioration at all. The entire suspension was fully rebuilt with new springs and shocks, ll bushing, all joints, ie-rod ends, tc. and continues to road the road today as brand new. Engine performance and braking match these same positive attributes! All safety items, ll gauges, nd all lights are fully functional. It really just needs to be enjoyed confidently! Mileage on this example is listed at 80,994 miles which we believe to be actual but do not have enough supporting evidence to make such a claim. Please feel welcome to call with questions or schedule a chance to view in person. Thanks!
