Really good body....., no sign of rust, bondo, or anything else. Came in with ancient, faded paint,,,,a bt worn, a few small chips, and now, just finished painting in absolutely gorgeous black.
We were told the engine was rebuilt 16k miles ago, zero smoke, 60+ psi oil pressure, exactly 150 psi compression in every cylinder, runs great. Wire wheels, fairly new tan leather interior, good top, side curtains, and tonneau, new chrome, brakes just done, all electrics work, lights, wipers, turn signals, gauge lights, etc, a sweet little collector's car.
Add another $2,000 for various options....stereo/CD with US4Bb input, electronic ignition, back up fuel pump, electric cooling fan, luggage rack, better this, different that....BUT WHAT A FANTASTIC STARTING POINT!!!!!!!! And, in the state of the hobby, in 2015, what a rare find to acquire a basically untouched (other than appropriate rebuilding and improvements over the years) example..........LOOK AT HOW STRAIGHT this car is....and remember, black shows every flaw. To use a fun phrase...'laser straight' down the side of the body. A one of a kind 'find.'
