The following items are new in 2016:

The car was completely redone 2001 – 2002
All body work, interior panels, carpeting, interior molding, struts and shocks, custom wheels, exhaust checked and customized for a better sound. Rear wiring harness replaced. Some scratches and missing paint on some panel edges. Frame scrapped, sanded and repainted. Floor panels in good (not new) condition. If you know what a “20 footer” is, the car is more in the 6-9 foot range.
New windshield and side glass is above average for 50+ years (no pitting or gouges)
All lights, and gauges work and is able to pass the Texas Vehicle Inspection.
There is no top or tonneau cover, I customized to a fair-weather ride. The outside door handles have been shaved. Sony CD player with 2 speakers in the panel behind the riders (stereo). No spare tire, but the mounting is there. Included is the original shop manual. Uses premium grade gad with lead supplement. Has a clean title.
Been in the family since the early 70’s. Selling as no one in the family wants it and I don’t drive it enough to justify keeping it. I have done all of the upkeep/restoration except for the tuning of the valves and carbs. I have driven less than 900 miles since 2002.
