Original engine; original interior with new carpet and floor mats; new paint, and soft top; original tonneau, boot cover and tool kit remain in good condition; trunk carpet has been replaced; many mechanical improvements under the hood to include new alternator, hoses; new clutch; the radiator appears to have been restored. Overall, the car presents well and drives nicely.

Tires appear like new but different brands on front and rear; no apparent concerns.
