My wife & I have owned this car for 43 years. We bought this car in May of 1974. It had about50,000 miles on it.

The original paint is not very pretty any more and could use a new paint job. Interior is in verygood condition but passenger seat has aworn spot, carpets show some ware,the paint and interior are 49 years old.The carnow has 113,550 original miles. This car hasbeen garaged all of the years that Iowned it. It has never been wrecked or in any accident. The car is pretty muchall original,see the rest of the listing for the work that has been done and parts replaced and many NOS GM & other new parts that go with the car.

It is a number matching, all original car with both tops. The only things that have been changed are that it now has a Holley carburetor, headers, Hurst shifter, AM FM radio w/ipod port, 8 x 15 rear wheels and the motor was completely rebuilt about 18,000 miles ago. I still have the original Carb, Air Cleaner, Shifter, Exhaust Manifolds, Radio and 7 x 15 wheels for the rear. So it can be put back to 100% original. Car came with 7 x 15 wheels. The car still has the original Red Line spare tire that has never been used.
