If it's as nice as it looks, this could be a steal. Probably won't last long.

Only the seats let the side down, otherwise what a deal.

The car is extensively rusted down low.

Trunk floor is made of tin and screws and rivets. Lower quarters are a patchwork of metal and rivets. Rockers are toast...inner and outer. Floors have some rust. Undercarriage is very scaly. Front fender lowers are booger welded on sheet metal and bondo. Fender tops/eyebrows rotted and bondo filled. Rear wheel tubs are thin with patches. Inner fenders and wheel lips are paper thin and jagged. Crusty around the front and back glass...likely to have rot under the trim. Car has been painted at some point obviously. Car came from PA but appears to have been bought new in Long Island. It would explain the lower body rot.

Interior is decent. Not so nice all vinyl seat covers over original seats. Ashtray thrown away. Headliner is very nice. Dashpad is trash. Carpet had been replaced at some point it appeared. Door panels decent. Radio faceplate plastic sun baked. Gauges appeared to work. Clock and radio are inop.

Chrome is hazed/pitted. Brakes are old and should be serviced.

Car starts but has noticeable missing. There’s a coolant and transmission leak. It does have new exhaust. Transmission lines are routed crazy and run the upper control arms.

Seller decided to not take offers anymore when I got there since more than 1 person has called about it. Even though he specifically said he’d take less originally. Kinda not cool but it is what it is. Price is $8900 firm now....

It looks good in the photos but it needs a total restoration. Title is from a few decades ago and in another persons name. He’s only owned the car a week and doesn’t know terribly much about it...
