***In my opinion, your will not find a much nicer ORIGINAL INTERIOR that still looks great for being original, and now has brand new weather stripping on the doors, door rails and rear trunk. The exterior has some small chips that is normal, but is bright and shiny and clearly looks STUNNING for a 40 year old car as you can see from the pictures***

Flaws: Front of car has some chips in paint such as on the headlight doors. You really do not notice them unless you are up and very close. The passenger door has a couple parking lot door chips in the paint that are barely noticeable and normal for a car this old. The left rear trunk hinge arm has a small paint run. Now this one, I did not notice until it was pointed it out to me. See trunk pictures at the classic cars website identified above. Please look carefully at all 100 pictures at the classic car website for other possible defects. All pictures are considered to be part of the description.

Naturally a car this old has no warranty and is sold as is.

I drive this car occasionally so the mileage will increase a small amount...
