All in all, this car handles like a new one, it is loud and fast, and garners much attention when driven. The front and rear bumpers could use rechroming and there are a few paint chips here and there, but the car is a real eye catcher in spite of that. If you have any questions you can call me at 717-363-0629. Payment needs to be $500 at close of auction with the remainder made within 7 days with cash or bank check. Car must be picked up within 14 days of the close of the auction. I can help with the loading of it, but will not arrange shipping. The car can be driven anywhere, so feel free to come pick the car up and drive it home as well. I took this car on Hot Rod's Power Tour in 2014, going the entire way and put a little over 4,000 miles on it. I would drive it across the U.S. in a heartbeat. I have a clear title in hand.
