No rust or damage on this rare find. Beautiful original interior, light stain on carpet, perfect original deluxe door panels, seat covers, headliner and dash pad. Both interior kick panels are discolored. AM radio, factory dashboard and instrument cluster is original. Everything works, except the original radio.
