Taillight plastic is perfect, chrome surrounds shiny and excellent originals

Faults: Minor scratches on both side door glass, minor vinyl repair on lower outside of driver's seat near the base [very difficult to see or photograph], small cracks 1/2" on grill side of plastic headlight surround. Scratches on lower windshield trim on passenger side.

This is, by inspection and by driving, a very well cared-for original that has been thoughtfully brought up to near-show cosmetic condition. It is not a show car, but a superb driver at half the cost of a restored “ trailer queen.” Car is being sold as-is, no warranties and is worthy of consideration for anyone who wants a terrific looking, excellent running driver.

We welcome your inspection by buyer or their agent. I am in East- Central Pa. - one hour North of Phila. and 1 1/2 hours West of Manhattan. Thanks for looking. – Mike (610) 393-6227
