Car is in need of complete restoration. It was last running about 10 years ago but with a little work and fresh fluids it can be running again in an afternoon. The body paint is faded and the edges of the panels are rusted. The car is dirty and dusty and in need of a cleaning.


Current owner has had the car since about 1983. Car was in minor accidentin 1974 affectingfront left corner. Thecar was then disassembled by the original owner and stored in a barn. Car was re-discovered in 1981 and the engine and transmission were rebuilt in 1983. Current ownerrestored the car completely in 1990. Was used as daily driver in Wisconsin andFlorida. Was parked again in 1998 and stored in Michigan outside under a car coveruntil 2006. Then it was relocated to Alabama and stored outside again under a car cover until 2007.Since 2007 it has been garage stored.
