The Good
The car runs strong, lways starts, ooks good, nd has a comfortable ride. Pretty much everything but the transmission and differential has been replaced or rebuilt. Reliable (for a 40+ year old car)
The Bad
The paint clear coat is starting to flake. The interior carpeting in the foot well is showing its age. Rust bubble forming on left rear dogleg where panel was replaced (no other rust that I know of). Car may have been in an accident before I owned it (wavy looking inner right fender well by oil cooler, ar tracks straight on road though) Hood slightly bent from popping up while driving (Not shown, ill take new pictures when possible)
I'm putting this car up for sale because I can't care for it the way I want to. I will miss it, t's my first car. I may also ask for visitation rights.
Ask any question you want, 'll try to answer it as best as I can.
