This car is amazingly all original, even the floor mats and hub caps!!!!!
I took many pictures from different angles to show you its originality.
There is no major body damage; only nicks and small dents. It has some rust stains in some areas, but the car is impeccable and ready to be painted. It still has the original paint from 1964!!!
It has all moldings, and fixtures. All hub caps are the originals. The hood, trunk and all doors are in excellent condition. Their respective hinges do not even grind or squeal. They open, close, sheathe, seal, and lock perfectly!!
The body is excellent. It has no major defects.
The head lights are also intact as well as all tail lights, and corner indicators. They are all original.
Bumpers are chromed and shiny, though, they need re-polished or re-chroming.
It has all original knobs, levers, switches, buttons, and even the AM/FM radio are original and fully functional!!!!
Shiny parts, are still shining excellently.
The dashboard amazingly does not even have a single crack. In fact, the dashboard is still soft!!!
Instruments, meters, and indicators such as speedometer, odometer, and oil temp work perfectly.
Windshield wipers work and have the original lever. Turning signal lever also works. The horn, light switch, and air switches also work fine. All switches are shiny as from factory.
The window rolling handles are good, except the driver's side; over 50 years of use, it got lose, but it is complete.
The back seat is intact from factory, but the front seat has to be re-upholstered. The roof upholstery is also intact. I doubt the carpet is original, but the inside walls and arm rests are all in excellent condition.
It is an V8, automatic transmission.
The engine run like a charm, and is extremely quiet. In fact, it starts as soon as the key is turned!!!
It has a lot of power!! Step on the gas pedal, and it really goes.
The transmission shifts very nicely. I had it fixed just before I parked the car few years back.
I just put a new muffler, although I kept the original.
The power steering could not work better. Turn the steering wheel, and you wont even feel it is turning!!
I am sure that after 50 years, it may need normal wear and tear replacements such as brakes, although the discs and drums are in good condition. It might need electrical troubleshooting, as some lights do not turn on, though the switch is intact.
This is a true jewel. I had begun to fix it, but decided I want to buy a new car instead. Paint it and re-do the upholstery, and you will have a almost mint condition classic.
I bought this car in 1998 in a small town in Washington state. The owner was the second to own this car!!!! i am the third owner!!!!
When I bought it, the spare tire was original. i drove it to California, drove it for about 5 years, got tired of it, and parked it inside a garage. The car never stopped running. I would run it every now and then to keep it alive. It has been inside for the past 10 years.
No flakes please. I am asking $5,500, but willing to take a good serious offer.
I put lots of pics from yesterday, so you see exactly what you would buy.
