Description

Blemishes are all shown close-up. Most significant blemishes include a couple big scratches on the driver's rear quarter, some bubbling along the driver's rocker panel, as well as a number of smaller chips and scratches. Originally Antique Gold on Light Gold Leather, the car saw a repaint in black many years ago. Interior remains unchanged. Respray was B level. Very much presentable, but it's older so it does show its age in places. “Driver-level”. Panel fitment is spot on, and the doors open and close nice and smoothly. Polished surfaces are all in great shape. Mirror-like finish. No oxidation on the bumpers or trim.
Glass is clear and crack-free. Signals are all functional. Powered black convertible top is in excellent shape and is functional. No punctures, no significant signs of age to note. Hubcaps are in great shape, with no curb rash or wrinkles. The car will also come with a second very nice set of the same hubcaps. Tires are older and should be replaced sooner rather than later. Not cracked and bald, but older than they should be. The light gold leather has discolored a bit, having almost a bit of pink hue to it. Seats have some scuffs and creases. Door panels have a couple little markings but overall are very nice. Powered windows are functional, as is the powered top. Carpet is excellent throughout, not discolored or fraying. Dash top has a crack on the passenger's side. Speedometer, odometer, and temp gauge are functional. Fuel gauge stays pegged. Analog clock is not functional. Automatic climate control works….R12 air conditioning compressor kicks on but does not blow cold, heat and fan are functional. If it has been sitting for an extended period of time you'll need to dump a little fuel in the carb to kick-start things, but once it's started it runs beautifully. The car idles low, steady, cool, and quiet. Pulls hard through the gears without any stuttering or hesitation, shifts smoothly and on-time. The car goes into gear nice and smoothly, without any clunking. The car tracks straight under acceleration and braking. Power steering is nice and light, doesn't whine or squeal. We'd replace the tires before long and just enjoy the car as-is.
