EXTERIOR:

THE BODY PANELS ARE STRAIGHT AND FREE OF BODY FILLER. THE PAINT IS ABOUT 10 YEARS OLD WITH GLOSSY FINISH WITH SOME MINIMAL FLAWS. THIS CAR HAS A VERY GOOD DRIVER QUALITY PAINT AND NOT A SHOW PAINT. THE UNDER-CARRIAGE, INNER FENDERS, ENGINE COMPARTMENT, FLOOR PANS, ETC. ARE RUST-FREE (SEE PHOTOS). THE CHROME BUMPERS, THE CORRECT HUBCAPS, AND MISC. TRIM ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. ALL TIRES ARE LIKE NEW. THE CONVERTIBLE TOP AND SIDE CURTAINS ARE LIKE NEW AND FIT WELL. WE DO NOT HAVE A BOOT COVER FOR THE CAR WHEN THE TOP IS FOLDED DOWN.

INTERIOR:

THE SEAT COVERS AND RUBBER FLOOR MATS ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THE STEERING WHEEL AND AND DASH LOOK GREAT.

MECHANICAL:

THE ENGINE STARTS BY TURNING THE FUEL VALVE (GRAVITY FEED) ON, PULL THE CHOKE OUT, AND PUSH THE STARTER BUTTON ON THE FLOOR. THE ENGINE SOUNDS GOOD ANDHAS GREAT OIL PRESSURE. THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTS WELL (2ND, AND 3RD SYNCRONIZED) AND THE CLUTCH IS STRONG. THE EXHAUST SYSTEM IS SOLID AND SOUNDS GOOD. THESE CARS ARE SUPPOSED TO GET ABOUT 50 MILES PER GALLON WITH A TOP SPEED OF 40 MPH. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS CAR IS NOT MADE FOR TODAY'S HIGH SPEED ROADS AND ISJUST A NOVELTY.

ELECTRICAL:

THESE CARS ORIGINALLY CAME ONLY WITH HEADLIGHTS AND ONE TAILLIGHT. THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAD INSTALLED THE FRONT AND REAR PARKING LAMPS AND TURN SIGNALS FOR SAFETY. THE LIGHTS ARE MOUNTED ON THE BUMPER BRACKETS AND CAN EASILY BE REMOVED IF DESIRED. THE FRONT PARKING LIGHTS DO NOT WORK FOR SOME REASON. THE OIL PRESSURE GAUGE AND AMMETER WORKS. THESE CARS ORIGINALLY CAME WITH MANUALLY OPERATED WINDSHIELD WIPER. HOWEVER, THE PREVIOUS OWNER INSTALLED AN ELECTRIC WIPER MOTOR THAT WORKS.
