clean. It does have an aftermarket fiberglass cowl hood to dress it
up. The car is straight, I don't see any rust or blisters.
Repainted it's original Tahoe turquoise color. I believe the jambs

shifter. The seats are reupholstered with reproduction covers. The
door panels are really good original condition. In front of me the
dash area is really nice. It was upgraded with a factory SS guage
package including the blinker tach. They call it that because the
tachometer covers the blinker, so it has a turn signal indicator in
the tachometer. Vintage Air was neatly added using a factory
control panel. It has a modern stereo with 6 inch round door
speakers and 6x9 speakers in back.
