Tires look new, no dry rot and excellent tread-still have nubbies on sides
Seats worn -color with of in spots -but no rips, burns or excessive cracking
Dash has no cracks except 1 small crack (to right of headlight switch)
NO ROT - surface rust on frame (which was scuffed & sprayed when brakes were done
No dentsAll glass good(except t-tops (see below)
Every thing works - except for the things mentioned below
Everything is there
Clear Mass title in hand.
The bad:
T-tops were missing when I got it - plexiglass tops on it now. Bought sight unseen- Wrong ones for the car. Not highway worthy
I can't get headlights to go up & down - plenty of vacuum @ switch, don't know how to move them manually (gonna Google it)
Transmission leak - small - noticed small puddle when it was jacked up in front for a few weeks. I have not addressed yet
Header leak (pass side) - had someone install new gasket- still leaking
A/C belt was removed when I got it- assuming compressor is seized
Carpet stained- can't get it out
Stains on door panels
Antenna is broken. Was very dry & fragil, I bumped it and it broke.
Screw missing for handle on driver's door panel
Front end shimmy (tires out of balance possibly)
Needs parking brake shoes - looked ok when brakes were done.
The obvious - The paint is cracked and faded - needs to be prepped and repainted. Dark grey still looks pretty good
Reserve 6500
