Had the radiator and battery replaced at 112000 miles.
Had the transmission rebuilt at 125000 miles.
The car was fully restored body wise in 2005 at 126000 miles.
Had 4 brand new tires put on it at 135000 miles.
And had new brakes put on at 136000 miles.
The car had belonged to my grandfather. After his death in August of 2003, my grandmother asked me if I wanted the car, and I said yes.
The black vinyl top was showing its age. The white paint looked fine, had some rust spots, and a few dents on it. It ran pretty good. The interior looked really good. The car was a nonsmoker's car.
When I obtained the car, it looked so-so, but ran really good. Yes, I have done my share of work to keep the car looking great. It still has all 4 of its original hubcaps still on the car to this very day. It is still a nonsmoker's car. The spare tire is also original, and so are the bumper jack parts.
On the highway, it runs great!! Lots of room interior wise. You can easily fit 6 people in this car. The trunk seems pretty big, too. Definitely family sized.
Once the car was restored in 2005, I decided to show my grandmother, who was in a nursing home at the time. When she saw what the car looked like, she was in shock and cried. She had to have a ride in the car. She had a few rides in the car before her death in 2008.
I really like this car a lot. It is big, very comfortable, and a strong runner. I never, ever use it in rain, ice, or snow. It sits in a climate controlled garage when not in use.
These are very rare cars, but if you find one, grab it!!
