Car is completely numbers Matching including engine, transmission, bell housing, all glass including windshield and all the wheels.
ExteriorCar shows super nice I believe it’s had one repaint in the original color but not sure if the entire car was resprayed or just some areas. I know the bumpers were, and they look and match fantastic.Car has a few small road chips on the wheel arches toward the bottom that were touched up over the years and look fine. Overall the exterior look fantastic.
InteriorThe interior of this car is a 9 to 9.5 its all original and absolutely beautiful no wear present except a little wear on the driver seat upper bolster as shown in the pics. A true time capsule that has spent no time in the sun. No fading no cracks nothing. Everything is super soft and Supple feels looks and smells new inside. All gauges are super clear and appear new. Beautiful dash and carpet as well. Has new floor mats.
MechanicalCar runs drives shifts and stops as new.Everything works except the clock. Air blows cold all dome lights radio all function as they should.Car has newer brakes, alternator and battery. Tires and wheels are new as well with less than 200 miles on them. Wheels are American racing torque thrust polished 5 spoke mags. Original rally wheels with center caps and original trim rings and lug nuts all included and in excellent condition. Tires are white lettered but reversed for the look with the mags if you want to put the rally’s back on you can flip the tires back to the white lettered side. Original jack and spare are present and unused.
Engine bay looks new, one of the cleanest I’ve ever seen absolutely show condition and correct under the hood. I did change the air cleaner top to chrome but have the original black one in excellent condition that will go with the car. Underneath of the car is as clean as the top, absolutely rust free and spotless. Car has brand new chambered exhaust front to back and sounds great not to loud nice and mellow. Car has been detailed underneath and looks absolutely fantastic. The exhaust in the pics was new as well but I had it changed out, it was too loud with that style muffler, so I had it replaced.
Overall this car is show quality in my opinion, pair that with the rare options and color combination and you have a real blue chip collectible.Car comes with a new fitted cover, the original t-top bags the original owners kit including the original owners manual all the warranty and tire paperwork 2 sets of original keys and receipts that date back to 1979. Also have the original gas cap (I installed a locking cap) the original will go with the car.
