I am a classic car collector, andenthusiast. I have written this listing to describe exactly how I see this car. I care about my reputation, and my fruits. Itry to be astransparentas possible, please remember this car is over 50 years.I am not theoriginalowner.
I have had this car about 7 months, I do not know the history on this car, or where it'sbeen. I purchased it in Las Vegas NV.I purchased this car as a classic weekend driver because it has all 4 going for it. This car is rust free, decent looking paint, has nice interior, and a solid drivetrain drive. This is not a perfect car.I have never seen one really old that is. I drive this car once a week a couple miles to the grocery store. I keep this car clean, waxed,garaged and I keepthe fluids up, the battery charged, and the tires aired up.
Engine?
The engine runs great, starts right up, nice and smooth. Quiet, No blow by,veryresponsive. Doesn'tsmoke. Has been rebuilt a few years ago. The actual miles on the engine are unknown. The wires, spark plugs, cap and rotor appear new. The oil is clean, the air filter could be replaced. Belts and hoses are fair.

The climate control system?
The heater and air conditioning do work.However, The AC is COLD howeverInoticedthe ac does have a slow freon leak,I'mnot sure where from and will need to be repaired or recharged every summer. The blower motor works. The heater core is good. The controls that switch the air from the vents to the floor and dash all are working. I can pull a quick vacuum and recharge the ac for you before you buy it. It should hopefully last through the summer.
Radio and 8 track?
The stereo is not working. Not surewhat'swrong with it.
Tires?
Tires are in fair condition. They have lots of tread but are old and show dry rotting. They will need to be replaced if the car is to be ran on the highway for any distance or driven daily.

This is a great classic driver. Starts right up, no funnynoises, sounds great, solid heavy car, classy car, best looking of the mark IV before the bumpers changed more classic looking. The sound of the 460 big block engine roaring down the road and the smell of a carburetor. Driving down the road with 10 feet of hood in front of you while sitting in a lazy boy in a massive landyacht floating down the road with your family worry free to the drive through in a car that represents America in the 1970's. Thats what this car represents to me. Real classic American steel car from the 70's this is whatAmericancars were all about. Made back when bigger was always better.
