Car shows very well, with nicks and scratches you'd expect from an older restoration, and I've shown them in the photos. Interior also shows very well, with the only trouble spot the abrasion on the drivers bolster. Car runs strong and smooth, shifts and brakes very well. The period-correct Ansa exhaust sounds great. If I were keeping it, I would move to the suspension next and replace all the bushings to tighten things up, as well as replace the window rubber, but other than that, all is well sorted for a reliable driver.
Car is currently registered in CT and is sold with Bill of Sale. I do have a copy of the North Carolina title that was signed over to Shamrock Motors in 1997. Note, I tried to include the link to more photos in the auction title, not sure if it will work. Email me for it if needed.
