Low options car: options include tinted windshield, vinyl roof, consolette, power steering and convenience group (trunk light, glove box light, ashtray light, courtesy lights, map light, and dual horns).Restored in 1998, this is a numbers matching car with original engine, transmission and rear end. Currently has approximately 103,000 miles.Approximately 8000 miles put on the car since restoration. The car is a nice driver and has been taken to cruises and some car shows. Car has been very well taken care of, runs and drives well and I wouldn't hesitate to take it on a long trip. It is very clean and has been garaged since restoration. Comes with a Technalon car cover. No original paperwork for the car but I have found several original printouts with the options listed when I took the car apart (see pictures).
