Excellent restored interior with barely a hint of aging. The carpet is 100% correct and excellent. The instruments are also restored to excellent condition. The engine bay is excellent as well with recent high quality detailing throughout. It has all the correct components and has recently also undergone mechanical tune-up etc. so the car runs like a clock. It has the correct air cleaners and correct carburetors. It starts instantly and runs exceptionally well. The trunk is also beautiful. Underside is show detailed having just been done. It is detailed to a high level and looks great.
