Restoration progress as of May 26, 2009
Front brake calipers and pads replaced and a new master cylinder. there is on quite rusty hub cap, I have two extra, quite nice replacement hub caps, color is dark maroon.
Rebuilt the fuel pump, new sparkplugs, reset gap on points, and got the car running. I have driven the car around the block several times. It runs very well and the transmission shifts smoothly.
Engine was replaced in 1992 with a new factory motor according to previous owner paper work. Also receipts for all new shocks, A/C compressor, blower, lines, and condenser. Also a new water pump, etc. was done in 2005.
I cleaned engine, engine compartment, and degreased front wheel areas.
The interior has some wear and cracks on the dash. The seats and carpets are in excellent condition. All glass is crack free and shows minimal defects.
The trunk has a few rust problems. The drivers side quarter panel has a few rust through spots on the bottom, and will need attention.
There are a few scratches on the drivers door, but the paint overall is in good condition. The documentation states it was repainted in the 90's.
This car will take minimal effort to get roadworthy and is very fine mechanically and cosmetics are very acceptable for a driver.
Call for more details and scheduling a test drive.
