All the chrome is still there.

On the other side of the block from my house, I have seen the rear of this finned and chromed car between the houses…. sitting for years never moving. I noticed the house it was at was for sale so I went and asked if the car was too. It was. It actually fired right up and looked pretty good. All the chrome was there… everything worked.. interior was nice! Only 120K miles! Has the straight 6 170ci engine. I took it for a spin and aside from a pretty decent exhaust manifold leak, it was worth making an offer for and taking home.

It looks like the only things I will have to fix initially are:

  • Exhaust manifold leak
  • Radiator has a bit of a leak
  • Convert to solid state ignition
