An incredible job ...car was completely disassembled ...not one spec of overspray anywhere.Never any damage at all ever before or after...car is laser straight with no bodywork ever.There are $25K grand nationals for sale that are not as laser straight as this car.All original numbers matching drivetrain(including carb) and all body panels.No rust anywhere ever.Car starts on first turn of key,runs on its choke and settles into perfect smooth idle.No fluid leaks,and clean as a whistle under and over.2 things it should receive, a/c charged/work and wheel alignment since i did springs,pulls to right a bit since.Not brand new of course and sold as is,but If theres a nicer 78 turbo regal alive id love to see it.Deposit is non refundable and due right at auction close,please no nonsense.Buyer will receive its clear clean Georgia title.Its always fully insured but i never transferred to my name.Full payment 3 days and pickup 1 week unless agreed to beforehand.The car is much more vivid and vibrant in person than the pictures capture.I am only selling because i have completed all i want to do to this rare car,and don't drive it at all.
