Although the body and chassis appear to be solid, he paint has a few blemishes, cratches, ents and dings and has been touched up in a few areas. The stainless, hrome and pot metal are in fair to good condition with some light pitting and tarnish as seen in the photos. These imperfections do not take away from the overall uniqueness and appeal of the car. It's a true "five footer," #3 condition car or better driver that can be enjoyed as is or taken to the next level. The convertible top fabric and plastic window is in good serviceable condition. The tan convertible metal frame is original and the paint shows its age.
