BODY ISSUES:

This is an A- body on a Triple A frame. Several panels were professionally replaced before I purchased it. Older paint shows well but has small chips in a few locations. The floor pans are new, heavy gauge steel, but were subjected to a rather marginal install job. The trunk pan has been upgraded with a sheet of heavy gauge steel, unfortunately the trunk wheel well was left neglected and has sectional seams that still need to be addressed. The factory trunk braces have been reinforced with a MIG. (None of this was my work). A new set of trunk pans is included with the car.

ALSO INCLUDED:

New Heater Blower Motor (Ecklers)

Additional weather strip for Doors (Ecklers, Soft Seal)

New Speedometer Cable (Ecklers)

A considerable collection of stainless trim (spares, stuff I had to buy in pairs only)

Fender Skirts (Decent all-metal ones, still in primer)
