[ Paint ] – This car was professionally painted about 13 years ago, sing acrylic enamel paint. It is extremely smooth, hiny, nd matches well. We did not detect any nicks or “trash” in the paint, or did we see any orange peel.

According to our research and 2+ resources, he original color of the car was “Raven Black”. We suggest buyers confirm by doing their own research.

[ Body ] – The body is very straight (it may have slight skim coat). The gaps on the doors, ood, nd trunk looks just like factory - if not better. We did not detect any rust perforation or dents; and our paint gauge measured between 8 thousands to 14 thousands. The hardtop is also very shiny, mooth, nd free of defects. Scroll down and click to see photos of the body prior to painting.

[ Chrome/Bright Work ] – The chrome is extremely high quality and is in excellent condition. We did not see any pitting, cratches, tc. Keystone did the chrome work, nd the bumpers even show the numbers that indicate a lifetime warranty on the chrome.

[ Glass ] – The glass looks like it is the original style for this car. It has a light green tint, nd shows no delamination, ulls-eyes, racks, iper marks, r scratches.

[ Interior ] – The black and white interior appears to be an original-style replacement. The seats are soft and supple and in excellent condition. The visors are also soft, ith no apparent checking or cracking.

The dash does not show any damage. All of the gauges, right work, nd controls look as they would have right from the factory (and also function as they would have). The door panels are OEM, nd the carpet is the correct pattern for this car, ccording to the owner. The carpet does not look faded.

[ Trunk ] – There is a jack, rench, nd spare in the trunk. The spare matches the other 4 tires on the car. There is also a correct-period mat. We did not detect any rust perforation.

[ Tires and Wheels ] – The tires look like original replacement, eriod correct tires. All 4 are BF Goodrich tires, ize 6.70 / 15. The left rear has about 13/32 tread; the other 3 have about 12/32. Everything seems to be in very good condition. We did not see any cracking, urb damage, r dents on the tires, heels, r rims.

[ Engine ] – The owner states the engine is correct, nd that it and the transmission were totally rebuilt. Everything appears to be correct and proper, ith nothing missing, ltered, r added to the engine or engine area. According to the seller, he engine casting number is ECZ6015B.

[ Chassis ] – The frame and floor is painted and appears to be mostly original. We did not detect rust perforation, or oil or fluid leaks.

[ Mechanical ] – The speedometer, dometer, nd all gauges and switches seem to function properly. The power windows, ower seat, adio, nd windshield wipers are also working. The lights (headlights, rights, urn signals, rake lights and back up lights) are all working correctly.

Because of insurance, e did not take the car for a test drive. The owner states that the car steers properly, nd does not pull left or right. Nor does it pull upon firm braking. The brakes do stop properly. The drive train was totally redone several years ago, nd is in excellent condition.
