I also have 2 spider caps that are currently on the passenger side. Old school bias ply wide white walls. * spare black steel wheel with white wall tire. Interior was stripped and covered top to bottom with Fatmat insulation and has been redone by a local upholsterer who recovered and repadded the original seats in a custom heavy grain vinyl. He also cut a custom carpet and matching floor mats out of a 60s Chrysler material. Its a cool sparkle carpet! Headliner and windlace was also installed after adding belair dome lights to the rear corners to light up the cargo area. Interior lights come on when opening doors or a switch near the rear hatch. Dash has been smoothed and has a restored Speedo. which was reset to 0000 and now reads 9500 +or-. and 3 Autogauge vitals in the stock bezel. A battery operated dash clock from an earlier model chevy was also added. Has a tilt steering column with an original steering wheel. Horn. blinkers. nd flashers work as they should. Vintage Air climate control with four indash vents. The heater works great. The AC still needs some minor wiring and ducts installed (parts will be included) and to be charged and tested.

All doors lock except for the rear hatch mechanism which recently broke. the cylinder inside has cracked and will need to be replaced. I will include the broken parts so a new one can be fabbed or matched. Paint and body is in fair condition. Body was in it's original brown patina before paint. Some rear wheel well patch panels and lower tail gate patch were installed. We did a basic scuff and shoot being it was going to have a matte finish. It is not a shiny show car finish but works well for the look I was going for. Main body color is SEM Whiskey base with no clear applied for a matte finish. Cream color is a single stage with clear for a glossy finish. There is some scratches and chips here and there. A couple quarts of the whiskey color will be included. All chrome was replaced or replated and is in good condition. Stainless was massaged and polished. Cons:Doors do sag a bit and door and hood gaps and alignment are not perfect. Windshield wipers are a aftermarket product which I spent a lot of time installing. even installed a self contained washer bottle unit behind the fender. nbsp;but the wipers still do not work properly. Some defects in body and paint= slight discoloration near gas filler. light scratches on doors. small chip on rear wheel well opening. *See picsFloors were replaced by previous owner which are solid but not the best looking from underneath.
