Summary

This vehicle looks to be a driver quality vehicle with some work. There are many areas that need repair and that are of sub-par quality work. From afar, this looks to be a nice vehicle. When you get close is when you start to see the issues. The paint shows orange peel all over and all body panels show misalignment to varying degrees. There are scratches and chips all around the vehicle. I was able to find filler all around the body using a magnet. The back lower portion of the door jams show prior poor work. There is overspray on the seals and in misc areas. (see pics) The underside shows rust and metal repair to the floors. (see underside pics) The doors sag when opening. The driver's inner door handle needs to be squeezed hard to get door to open. The right inner door panel shows wear and the handle has pulled away from the inner door panel. The driver's window regulator is making noise and it is hard to get the window to go up. Both rear windows are hard to get down. The passenger window went up and down well. The linkage for the shifter on the floor is loose and is not adjusted properly. When you think you are in neutral, you are actually in reverse. I attempted to do a long test drive but was only able to drive the vehicle for a short time. The brake pedal goes just about to the floor and vehicle stops very poorly. It is dangerous to drive in this condition. The transmission was slipping upon take off. The engine did start and it ran well. The steering felt a little loose. The suspension showed no issues. The rear has air shocks. The tires and rims are like new. I believe the prior owner who did the restoration didn't have a whole lot of experience restoring vehicles. Unfortunately the paint and body work is sub-par. If the price is right, this is a good candidate for a full restore. See below for more info.
