Private Consignment Durham, North Carolina
Many items repaired or replaced in recent ten year ownership to include suspension related bushings and springs, lever shocks serviced or replaced (front right needs service), heater control valve, oil leak from sending unit has been repaired; leak from brake valve repaired and brakes have been bled; supporting documents are available; with spare tire and original toolkit.
Overall good condition; with a repaint in red, paint shows well with some blistering under paint to drivers side lower fender. A nest of sorts was discovered in the fender and removed, likely damage from animal waste; both floor pans appear to have been covered on the inside with a galvanized material and extends the length of floorpan on both side. With a small hole in each floorpan, the extent of decay didn't warrant replacing the otherwise solid floorpans; a dash cover has been fitted over the original dash; door panels have been recovered and need repair to drivers side (speaker is loose); the glovebox has a crack in door; convertible top has tear in typical location, and some buttons/snaps are missing; vent control knob turns, however cannot move from screen vents, and Off position continues to blow from screen if fan running; no other apparent concerns.
