Let's start with minor problems. because there are no major ones:

Front right side door glass has some little cracks (does not jeopardize operation).   See photo.

Left rear side door glass has a vertical crack on the inside pane of the laminate (does not jeopardize operation).   See photo.

Upholstery serviceable and fine for me. but it is 66-years old (just installed new seat covers).

Rear main seal leak. like they all have.

Gauge cluster is finicky (I'm including a replacement cluster).  See photo.
