I have owned this car since 1978, bought it from a man who bought it a year before from original owner in AZ. It has spent the last 41 years in ND, where it was always stored inside. I had it painted and new top in about 1982 and had a new top boot made. As far as I know there has been no body work done other than paint. There are numerous paint chips and a couple places where paint is cracked. At least one of the wire wheels has some rust. The top is pretty good, no tears or problems. Interior shows several places where needs sewing, or new panels put in. Original upholstery has been used for well over 50 years, so it is in need of work. Floor carpet is quite poor, as is the trunk liner/carpet. Dash is good, radio is not original. A/C made a squealing noise when I bought it, so I just cut the belt and have gotten by without A/C. I cannot say how A/C would work. The gear shift knob (plastic) is broken off, and needs gluing back into position. Engine and transmission are original (V8, auto ) and I think are pretty good. I have driven the car on several 600-1500 mile trips in years gone by . ( my late wife loved to ride in the open, so it was used almost every day in summer until 4 years ago when she passed....my wife now doesn't like it at all, so car needs new home) The brakes were reworked 4 years ago, but still grab a bit when used after car has been sitting for a few days, after a couple taps brakes are good. New points, etc last summer, tune-up. Like any older car, there will be a little leakage from motor or transmission ( not to the extent I have to add fluids, but enough to see spot on floor). Tires are pretty good, I'd not be bothered by a cross-country trip. Wheels are not original. Top motor works, but is weak and needs help to go up or down. I'd guess it only needs more automatic transmission fluid to make it stronger. I have for many years put the top down in spring, and back up in October, so the fact I had to help didn't bother me. It did work fine w/o help from me until about 6-7 years ago. This is not a show car, but is a car to be enjoyed all summer , life is meant to be enjoyed. Note: rear window on left side has a stripped gear on handle, so window needs to be put up by hand ( pulling with two palms ) The glass is good on rest of car.
