Absolutely unmolested as they come. Look underdash, not 1 wire out of place, cut or missing. Painted at a cost of $3K a couple of years back. There was 1 small rust hole behind the RR wheel. The underside of this car is very solid, with only surface rust. Work just completed: I replaced both front lower frame rails and radiator crossmember.

Rechromed front bumper - rear is driver quality original. 3 seatbelts have been added to the rear seat area. New brake master cylinder and brakeswitch, new drums and shoes all around. All electrical / lighting works properly including BU lights!

The carpet is sunfaded and should be dyed. The front original seatbelts are present, but don't adjust properly. The need to be internally cleaned or replaced. rear parking brake cable sticks, should be cleaned and lubed or replaced (avail at Macs, $56)
