I'm selling for College costs.
I went over budget with personal toys. :)
I can send you a video. need your email address or I can text it.
No mechanical issues, t starts and goes.
I noticed a leak around bottom oil pan recently and small and may just need a slight tightening before attempting to replace the seal.
And a small 1 inch cut on vinyl top on passenger side. It's not noticeable and covered from the inside with Gorilla Tape.
It never bothered me cause it s small and sealed. Vinyl Tops are cheap at $300ish and easy to replace.
Paint is very shinnyand professionally done with the added sports scope on the hood. no body fill, o rust.
Car is stunning and get lots of thumbs ups always from all ages. Kids love it with a "What is that? or so Cool" comment. Adults really admire it giving them flash back memories and are astonished when they hear and see its a V8.
Car is very appropriate to today's style even since the 70's.
