It has been kept as a fun vehicle to enjoy and drive and restore if not improve upon the original state.

Disclosure: Here are some items. imperfections that detract from ideal:
1. Finish: There is some orange peel on fenders and doors and sl. runs on right rear fender and driver door. A The right rear body tub was dinged after painting and this was repaired but feathered edge of clear coat was not buffed out; the clear coat on the front bumper. which is aluminum. has flaked off in areas;
2. The top is more than 25 years old and therefore shrink is evident where the B pillar flaps fall short of the tabs.

4. rear bumper has some dings and overrider has some breakdown in the chrome;
