Please take a look through the photos, as the car is shown in detail. The gold/pewter color suits the car very well, and is rounded out nicely by the orange and grey mid-line pinstripes. There are a number of hairline cracks in the paint and spots of visible checking of the finish, as well as a broken-off side mirror on the passenger side. Looks excellent from ten feet, but upon close inspection, there are multiple blemishes. There are minor bits of oxidation on the inner centers of the polished wire wheels. Whitewall tires are in nice shape, with no dry rot or significant wear. Glass and light lenses are all clear and crack-free. Panel fitment is spot on and the doors open and close nice and smoothly. Polished surfaces including bumpers and trim pieces are very nice, with minimal oxidation.

Interior is in really nice shape. Vinyl is free of any punctures or scuffs with the exception of the driver's outer bolster. Pioneer radio is functional. Fan is functional. There's an old AC compressor on there but it has no belt on it and presumably does not work. Gauges appear to all be functional, though we have not been able to test speedometer/odometer as the car will require engine work in order to be driven. Odometer reads 9,112, which is presumably mileage since assembly. We do not know the history of the current drivetrain and how many miles are on it. Lights (headlights, taillights, fogs, signals, and interior) are all functional. Carpeting is in nice shape throughout, not tired-looking or discolored. Dash wood looks great; again, please defer to the photos.

Mechanical / Underbody:
Car looks quite good underneath. No through rust or visible damage. Nothing more than minor oxidation on various exhaust and suspension components. Clearly a garage-kept car.

The car does start, but we have not driven it. Upon first starting the car we observed a rod-knock-type noise from the lower engine, so we shut it off immediately. This car will need attention before becoming a driver. The engine is a GM 350ci V8 from the late 70s or early 80s, so the most logical route would likely be to drop a new 350 crate motor in it, but that is up to the next owner to figure out how they'd like to handle it. We have not dived too far into it.

With any further questions, requests, or to discuss purchasing, please reach out to Jake at 773-267-2684.
