Great craftsmanship, nice driving, wish they still built them like this


The car has sat for many years so a lot of stuff is bad from sitting and age.. water pump, alternator bearings, some of the seals.. etc.

General Comments:

I thought the car had 139,000 on it, but it turns out that is does have 39,000 miles.

Has all power options, original OK stamp on the valve cover. 8-lug kelsey hayes wheels. For those of you who are not familiar with these, they are an aluminum brake drum that a large bolt pattern 8 lug wheel bolts too. They look really cool and practically eliminate brake fade.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
