BODY: STRAIGHT SMOOTH BODY that is very solid. There is only a small amount of surface only rust where rear quarter panel folds under the body caused by rock chips (surface only). There is an insignificant amount in each door in the seam area where the door skin is pinched on at the corner, nothing serious. No bodywork has ever been done to this car that I know of or does it have any bondo I can find. Pictures should show all this. The hood & trunk lid have crazing. I have not been able to get good pictures of the hood and trunk yet to show the paint condition I am talking about. It has a few chips and a small ding around the passenger side door key / handle. Review all the photos for complete details. The plastic bumper fillers have been replaced and repainted with aftermarket ABS parts.

What does it need: Carburetor tuned and checked out, I have not had time to fully get it tuned and it will leak down after it sits for a while making it harder to start. Cruise Control is all there but I have not got it functioning since it is back on the road. Headlight Bezels as the present ones have bad chrome.
