I TOOK TOOK THIS CAR IN ON TRADE AND IT SURE IS FUN TO DRIVE. . IT HAS 78,916 MILES ON THE SPEEDOMETER . WITH THAT SAID I WILL NOW GIVE A DISCRIPTION OF THIS CAR . FIRS, THE GOOD NEWS . THIS CAR RUNS AND DRIVES FINE . MOTOR RUNS PERFECT WITH NO SMOKING . TRANS SHIFTS GREAT .A VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF PLAY IN THE STEERING . NOT BAD . BRAKES WORK FINE . THIS CAR HAS A 292 ENGINE .

INTERIOR IS ALMOST PERFECT.THIS CAR ALSO COMES WITH BOTH THE SOFT TOP AND THE HARDTOP . DOORS OPEN AND CLOSE REAL NICE . NO SAGGING . HOOD AND TRUNK OPENS AND CLOSES FINE . TIRES ARE AT ABOUT HALF TREAD . GLASS IS ALL GOOD . NO CRACKS OR FOGGING .THERE IS A BUNCH OF NEW MISC GASKETS AND RUBBER SEALS IN THE TRUNK . ALL LITTLE BADGES AND DASH KNOBS ARE THERE . I DON'T SEE ANY THING MISSING BUT I COULD BE OVER LOOKING SOME THING SMALL . NOW THE BAD NEWS . THIS CAR NEEDS A PAINT JOB . THE PAINT IS CHIPPING AND SPIDER WEBBING IN PLACES . ONE DENT IN THE HEADER PANEL ABOVE THE GRILL .THE GRILL IS FINE. NOT BROKE .THE REST OF THE BODY LOOKS PRETTY GOOD . THERE IS ONLY ONE SMALL AREA THAT I SEE NEEDS A SMALL REPAIR . THAT AREA IS THE FOOT AREA ON DRIVERS SIDE . ITS NOT REAL BAD AND USABLE THE WAY IT IS . SOME ONE HAS CUT OFF THE FRONT TIPS OF ALL SIX FLOOR BRACES . THE FLOORMETAL AROUND THESE BRACES LOOKS FINE WITH GOOD SOLID METAL BUT THE BRACETIPS HAVE BEEN REMOVED .THE AREA OF THE BRACES WHERE IT MOUNTS TO THE FLOOR AND FRAME ARE IN FINE SHAPE .OTHER THEN THE ONE DISCRIBED ARE, THE REST OF THE FLOORS AND TRUNK LOOK PRETTY GOOD .

LOOKS LIKE THIS CAR MAY HAVE BEEN UNDER COATED WHEN IT WAS NEW BACK IN 55 .THE RADIO DOESN'T PLAY BUT THAT IS PROBABLY THE OLD VIBRATOR .THE POWER BRAKE BOOSTER IS IN THE TRUNK . I ASSUME THAT IT WILL NEED A REPAIR .THE HARDTOP IS IN GREAT SHAPE .THE SOFT TOP IS ALSO IN GREAT SHAPE BUT THE TOP MATERIAL HAS A SMALL TARE IN THE WELTING ON BOTH SIDE, AS AN ADDED NOTE ------------ I HAVE A FOLDER THAT CAME WITH THIS CAR .
