Condition:This car is mostly original. As would be expected, here is wear and tear. I have tried to show this in some of the photos. There is no evidence that I could find of any accidentdamage, ut I believe that the right side of the car was repainted at some point. The remaining paint appears to be original and you can see the badge from the dealer in NY.There is some rust at the bottom of the left front fender. The frame appears to be very straight and rust free.This car drives very well. Engine is smooth, airly quiet, ires right up, as good oil pressure ( 60 lbs. at 2000 rpms). Trans shifts up and down normally with an occasional snag downshifting to second ifhurried. Steering is true and fairly light even when parking. Everything inside works (horn, /s, auges,etc.
Overdrive:The chassis number of this car indicates that it should have an overdrive transmission ( the letter O at the end).However, he car does not have overdrive, nd there is no mention of it in any of the paperwork we have. I could not find any wiring for it either. A heritage certificatemight clarify this and I wouldrecommend that the buyer look into it.
