Dad bought this car 25 years ago. drove about 15 summers. Been setting in garage in Grand Marias. N.    I started working on it two winters ago.  Had to replace water pump with quality aftermarket pump.   Also found cracked head. replaced with reworked used head. Still have old head and rocker assembly. Replaced both rear brakes. shoes. hardware. and slave cylinders. Also replaced master cylinder and booster.     Did not do front pads. Believe they were new 25 years ago.   Brakes work fine.    As far as body condition. Has rust on underside. Driver side front cross member rusted out. see pictures. Also 2" square hole in floor at left door post. This is the area above cross member.  Right side front cross member showing signs of rust. Have purchased replacement cross members. but they need to be welded or bolted in. Rest of underside good.   Has oil film on most of underside. Needs tranny and rear end seals replaced.  Installed new rubber on doors. door seal. window channel. When had door panels off cleaned inside doors. No rust. Replaced armrests with pre formed panel from Swedish Treasures.  Dash has no cracks. headliner looks great. Steering wheel has no cracks.   Replaced wepping  under seats.  Small ding in metal cover next to ignition switch. like someone prying at switch.  Bottom outside of doors also rust free.    Other than cross members car is basically rust free. Was surface rust at battery and master cylinder. used extend rust and painted.  Has bondo on right rear quarter panel. Dings in drivers door.  About 10 small dings on rest of car.   Paint getting old.   Ding in chrome grill ring. Chrome along top edge of right rear quarter not straight.   All other chrome good.   Seats original leather. good for age. replaced straps for bottom cushion on both front and rear seats.     If I were to keep car. would pull engine and tranny. Replace all drive train seals.   Replace cross members. Probly will need to beef up rocker panels where cross frame attaches. Body work and paint.      Good project car.   Maybe even make money.    Electric overdrive works fine.   Car is drive able. but would not take on rough / washboard roads. or hard fast turns until fixing cross member.  Drove 200 miles from Grand Marias to Hinckley MN.   Ran good. but needed to have choke pulled out 1/2 way.   Has 2 SU carb's. Will try adjusting. Cleaned them last year. I would install weber carb and manifold. Steering a little touchy. seems to oversteer to left. Worst case needs steering box work. Tracked straight. Was a fun drive.  Tach reads about twice the actual rpm. Fuel gauge not working. Oil pressure gauge is a mech type. nbsp;Have plugged off right now. will try to get fittings to connect. Water temp and oil temp gauges work. but water gauge only reads 120.   But does move.   All lights working.  Reserve set at 4k.   But will lower if get good bids.  Will keep working on small things. oil gauge. will try spare tach.   Car is in Brook Park. N. But can be brought down to Edina. MN.    No problem if want to inspect.   I think car would drive long way. but certainly needs work. Get knocking noise from right rear end on bumpy road. Can't see what is loose.   Would also change all bushings.
