Mechanic made note:
-exhaust has a hole and needs replaced
- tires need replaced due to age, as they have hardened
-gear shift requires being in full up and in a "sweet spot" to enable starting. Mechanic stated this is typical for these vehicles due to the locking mechanisms in the swing-away steering wheel. Please be your own judge of this information and research if needed. Executor started car with no issues, but is stating information as full disclosure.
Vehicle has 390 engine, 3 speed CruisOMatic transmission, 8 cyl, with swing away steering column.
Non functional electrical up/down antenna (motor for antenna is heard functioning, but the antenna does not retract)
Of the 4 electrical windows, only the driver's is functional, the passenger side motor is heard to be running, but the glass does not respond.
Appears to be original upholstery and paint.
Trunk is covered in houndstooth lining. Is noted to be dirty.
Door handle interior armrests will need replaced. Exterior has small nicks and a ding on the hood (approx 1" long, 1/8" deep, 1/8" wide). The deceased titled vehicle in 2002 or 2003, have clear title in hand.
The 5 digit odometer reads 52,231, based on one of the photos, as executor failed to write down the information at the time. It is unknown if this is the sole mileage or if the odometer has rolled. We have no hands-on history of the vehicle.
