Specifics of the car:
BODY
  • Body is in great shape. a few small bubbles forming on the drivers door (see picture)
  • Very bottom of rockers has a little surface rust. Not rusted through, but want to mention it (see picture)
  • Underside still has factory undercoating. A few spots where the undercoating has fallen off and little surface is showing (see pictures)
  • I included one picture of the support under the car right in front of the passenger side spring hanger, there is some rust, but it is still solid. I would address that eventually before it becomes a problem.
  • Paint looks great. I am not sure if the paint is original or been resprayed. I am leaning towards resprayed.
  • Turquoise paint has some small pits which show white paint underneath. The seam between rear quarter and trunk area has been touched up.
  • Quarter, doors, rockers and fenders are solid. No filler or patches from looking under the car.
  • Floors, braces, etc. are all solid with no rust issues and look to be original to the car.
  • Battery area is rust free. No damage to due to past corroded battery, etc.
  • Underhood / inner fender structure is solid. No rust issues and that it original paint.
