- Light Yellow Gold is the original color. “Honey Mustard like” is the best way to describe it. Paint is a B-quality respray. Paint blemishes include some chipping along the forward hood crease, chipping along the rearward driver door crease, as well as some overspray on the passenger front fender emblem. These are shown close-up in the video accompanying the listing
- Body is in nice shape, with no dents or dings. There is however some very small rust bubbles forming on the bottom of the rocker panels, most evident on the passenger side
- Glass is crack free. Driver window shows some streaking
- Black vinyl top is in excellent shape. No damage whatsoever
- Wheels and tires are in nice shape. Front driver rim has a ding in it. Tires are Firestone FR440s and are in excellent shape, though are likely a bit old
- Chrome pieces are nice throughout. Front and rear chrome bumper show no oxidation or dings
- Black Lamont cloth and vinyl bench seat is in great shape. There is a missing button on the driver's seatback, but other than that the seats are fantastic front and rear. No scuffs, no fraying
- Door panels are in decent shape. There is a small tear on the driver's door handle. No kicked-open scuffs or other damage though
- Headliner is nice and tight
- Powered systems are all functional, with the exception of AC. AM/FM dolby radio, wipers, all lights and signals inside and out, power windows, fan, heat/defrost. Air conditioning is on R12 refrigerant and does not kick on
- Carpeting is in nice shape. No significant stains or tears. A set of floormats will come with the car as well
- Odometer reads 47,992 miles. As it's a 5 digit odometer, we cannot be positive if that's 47k or 147k
Under the Hood / Underbody
- Original 429ci 4V V8 and Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission
- Car runs and drives very well. It starts up first turn even in Chicago winter temps, accelerates and shifts smoothly and without any hesitation, and the brakes are excellent. Car feels very stable and the suspension is extremely forgiving. As it sits, this car has no glaring needs
- The underbody is in decent shape. There's quite a bit of undercoating peeling away, which makes the underbody look worse than it is. Car is structurally sound. No significant damage underneath. Car does not leak
Overall, this is a nice driver-level example in a unique, original colorway. Please reach out to Jake at 773-267-2684 with any questions, requests, or to discuss purchasing
