Nothing that can't be touched up. You can see there is no sign of rust in the door area and A pillars are very solid and rust free. The original radio works as does the power antenna. The original clock is actually working and keeping good time. The original vin tag and trim tag are in place and show that everything is correct on the car. You can clearly see the block is stamped with the partial vin and codes out to be the 396/425hp block. The K66 transistorized ignition is in place as it should be. These are often missing on these cars. This item was required by GM with the purchase of this L78 engine. The original exhaust system finally gave in to age and was just replaced with the GM correct system for this car. This was just done within the last 2 weeks. Included with the the 396/425 engine package, were heavier front coil springs, larger stabilizers and better rear suspension. The Kelsey Hayes Knock off wheels are wrapped in B.F. Goodrich Silvertown tires, 7.75-15 4 ply front and back. These cars are becoming extremely collectible.
