This car was owned by one family until I purchased it for my private collection. It is all original (except tires/hoses/belts etc. ) and rust-/dent-free. (There is just a little surface corrosion on the paint where the vinyl top trim meets the body. ) The chrome and trim inside and out are like new with no rips or cracks in the interior. The original multi-coat custom lacquer paint is cracking and peeling on the top surfaces but I left it as is (with some touch up on the chipped parts) to try to keep it as all-original as possible. The car runs and drives fantastic and has ONLY 45K original miles!!
All the power options and accessories work. except the AC (I only drive it for shows/events so have not messed with it). radio. and power part of the sunroof (still works by hand crank that came with it new). Both TVs actually still work and were working just fine until the switch over to digital a few years back (see the converter in the trunk that we got to work last time we tried it).
This is a super rare one of a kind car in original condition that remains unlike anything else on the road! A true piece of American Automotive history!
I am a private collector so the car is sold as is where is with no warranties express or implied. It is over 40 years old so is not a 100 point perfect museum piece. nor is it being held out as such. Please ask any and all questions BEFORE bidding. All transportation and shipping charges and costs will be the buyer's sole responsibility (although I am happy to make the car available to your shipper/transporter once full payment has cleared).
