Color is VW "Tabasco" 3 coats, 3000 grit wet sanded. Note color shifts in very bright sun.
Also note hand-applied, old-school pinstriping (Don Mooney).
Has directionals (Chevy).
Upholstery hand-made custom upholstery not seat covers.
Power steering. Tilt wheel. Grant wood steering wheel, CD stereo radio, modern gauges (tach, oil pressure, temp, voltage). Speedometer is right on.
Known deficiencies: Driver window has a diagonal hairline crack and interior door handle is missing. Mostly 12V, but some 6V items, such as fuel sender and dash lights do not always work. Speedometer is right on. Wipers are original vacuum and a bit on the soft side. Paint starting to bubble on driver door down low (easy fix I am told for a body man). Comes with about a third of a gallon of the original "Tabasco" red paint with the mix code, including a new aerosol touch-up can of that same, original paint (not a 'matching' aftermarket acrylic). No heat/AC.
This is a reliable driver, not a trailer queen. Cruises effortlessly at 65mph.
Also have a few extra pieces, notably the rare, original, under-passenger-seat heater fan (currently out of the car).
