It reportedly underwent a frame-off restoration performed by Auto Restorers, Inc. of Haleyville, Alabama in 1984.

The seller states there are a few small rock chips in the paint and a couple of small fiberglass spiderwebs. The door jamb by the VIN plate has some slight rust.

The bucket seats are upholstered in black leather.
