Windows go up and down just fine. All chrome and stainless are in great shape. INTERIORThe interior was redone. Originally red. it was converted to black during the restoration. The seats are plush.

I would describe this car as a great cruiser and small to moderate size show car. The car was built with the intent to be driven and enjoyed. With a fully upgraded drive line including a 700 transmission and four wheel disc brakes. the car should be able to travel at modern highway speeds and stop on a dime. It has a Holly carburetor (which I am not a big fan of). I drove the car for about an hour on surface streets in ninety degree heat. I did not experience any heating issues. I took it though the gears. The car shifted fine. Stopped effortlessly. Got plenty of attention. I did however notice after a while. nbsp;the car idled a little low at stop lights. I have adjusted the carburetor. I believe it fixed the problem. however I recommend changing the carb to an Eddlebrock. I am not a mechanic nor do I claim to be. The previous owner invested a considerable amount of money in the car. making it more reliable. safe and modern. This car is perfect for the person that wants to get turn the key and go. You don't want to waste three years of your life building a car and risk the possibility of being upside down in it. My reserve is set below the cost of the upgrades alone. nbsp;made to this vehicle. It has a nice throughty sound without being annoying or excessive. The car did not have a center console when I received it. however I found one locally which I will include with the sale of the vehicle. The lights. turn signals. dummy lights. speedometer. odometer all work. An aftermarket temperature and oil pressure gauge are located under the dash. This is a driver's car.
