I JUST bought this beauty off E-Bay. Had to re-do the brakes. rotors. drums. brake calipers. and I installed a 3 row alum. radiator because these cars tend to run hot. It seems to have done the trick although the original radiator is still in a box and fine. The car is totally original. and the only things left to do are two snaps repaired on the top and I have extra of those. Also. the leaf spring could get replaced although I put new airshocks on just to ride really nice. Other than a couple of scratches where putting on the hard top caused. this is sweet. Please though. my health has gotten bad and I haven't got it in storage and I don't want the weather messing it up. The chrome is perfect. Hurry. I will even take a slight loss on her to make sure someone gets her that's going to take good care. Im not able anymore. Its sad but true.
