Keep in mind this is not my car. I am selling it for a friend of mine who downsized and no longer has the space to keep it.
This car was repainted several years ago. There are some flaws in the paint. There is some minor fish eyes. a few areas of light orange peel. and some other slight imperfections. I had someone look at it and they felt some of it would look better by wet sanding and buffing. The paint looks good as a driver. cruise nights. etc. I took pics the best I could. I found filler in the lower front fenders and the finish at the very bottom is not perfect. When you look at it from different angles. the front fenders look like a different shade. The owner said it was never repaired since painted so I dont know.
The under carriage looks to be very clean and very solid.
Some of the items like rubber bumpers. you may notice missing are included with the car. There are some hardware pieces and such also included.
The car was originally some type of burgandy with I believe was a off white interior according to the VIN.
Tires are very good to excellent as far as I can see. I think the wheels are the repro magnums.
The headlight doors work but the left one does not stay closed very long after the engine is shut down.
There is a load of reproduction pieces on this car.
The piece of trim above the windshield is dented and a new piece is included.
All the sequential lights work. The radio comes on but does not play. Dont know why. It looks like all the instrumentation all works.
The shifter locks into park but will move between positions without pushing the release button
The parking brake works. There is a red light on the dash just above the handle that blinks when the brake is pulled. I dont think it is original
The car runs and drives but really needs a carburetor or the one on here needs rebuilt. The tranny shifts but I dont know how well since I really cant good speed out of it with the carb. The problem stems from todays gas. the car sat and the gas went to crap. I have over the last few months removed some of the gas and replaced it with fresh along with treatment. Its better but I would not drive it til fully straightened out. I changed the plugs also.
It has a slight lifter tap but it also has been getting quieter when running it.
The interior is in very nice condition. I for one cont find any signs that it was ever white. There is a piece of dash trim which is cracked.
The engine is a 289 2V with a automatic tranny. It has dual exhaust. I have the air cleaner. Just trying to dial in that carb.
If I think of anything else I will post it.
I will add that even with its little flaws. this is a nice car for its age. If you want to put a little time into it you can finish up the little things. You may find most of the missing parts included. A solid as the chassis looks. it is also an excellent starting point if you wanted to do the paint over.
