Very clean and completely rust free, unmolested , originally a CA car, purchased in 2005. In AZ since. Previous owner had started restoration, and passed. So I finished it. Chrome was great, so complete original color paint job. Wouldn’t hesitate to drive across country. Optional 455 motor, turbo 400 of course. Runs like a Swiss watch. Lol. Over the years did normal things like new radiator, heater core, ac compressor (still r12), carb o\h, tuning, valve cover gaskets, belts. Within the last couple years, new top. The top motor and cables were replaced just before I bought it. Also this year, water pump started leaking. Of course the bolts broke in the timing cover, so did the timing chain set, cover, water pump, and fuel pump all in 1 shot. New alternator and battery also. Last year did brakes, calipers, master and rear brakes. Wheel cylinders several years back. About 5 yrs ago did front end. Upper and lower bushings, center link and idler arm. Also replaced steering gear, pump and hoses. Trans shifts like butter. New shocks. Tires 6 hrs old, but never exposed to the sun unless out for a ride of course. Installed a high flow cat converter with a mild muffler, purrs like a kitten. :) Drives like a dream. Has a alarm, and 6 speaker sound system. Cd changer mounted in the trunk. Power windows , locks, tilt, cruise. All the normal stuff and all works except cruise needs a transducer. Being in AZ, windows are tinted.
The things that aren’t perfect. Cruise transducer, small tear in the vinyl on the back seat, the pass door top chrome mldg needs a couple clips, the hand painted pin stripes has rubbed away in a few spots due to the car cover, the left roof latch handle need replacing. The latch still works fine, just part of the handle has broken off.
