Right tail light blinker not working likely due to a leak and mildew in the enclosure. One pressure ding on hood (on left headlight door–palm size. mod inexpensive repair)Some (if not most) of the black trim metal trim needs to be touched up for maximum appearance in my opinion. Trunk and door gaskets have been periodically removed. cleaned & conditioned. and are in good condition. * Rear bumper is slightly askew and might be adjusted * I suspect a dedicated restorer may wish to recondition the vehicle exteriorCondition / InteriorDash is in surprisingly good condition (garage kept & usually parked in sought out “shade” areas)Upholstery is in quite good condition with expected wear for age of vehicle. Some fading on top of back seat. Speaker cloths a bit worn & also a (non-obvious) spot at sidewall area of rear seat. Sun visors need reconditioning.
