Fog lights not upgraded Front seats replaced with bucket seats and head rests. Original seats and seat mounts are in good condition and come with carI've owned this car for over thirty five years and have enjoyed many hours of driving. As I approach eighty the car is used less and less and I believe a car not driven doesn't do well. The car was restored in the early '80s. In 2009 the engine was rebuilt by George Nelson (G. N. Engineering) and I upgraded the electrical system to 12 volts. More comfortable seats were also installed. These seats do not fold down and access to the rear seats is very limited. Returning to the original seats should not be difficult. In 1980 all rust had been eliminated. Today there are a few small areas where rust is beginning to show. The body has paint defects in several areas. See photo showing the four worst defects.For more details e-mail me at robert.whitney1@verizon.net.
