Most of the original parts are still hanging around and will go with the car. I have owned this since 1988 when purchased the odometer showed 34754 miles and while that speedo was lost I feel that 40000 would be roughly the correct mileage today. The only rust hole I have found is between the rear inner fender and the trunk where the shields had been removed. I made up some for protection and to stabilize the rear fenders . without them the fender tend to flex at speed . There are factory replacements in the trunk. 5one7/304/six366
