FYI. I have documentation and receipts for all work. From original owner and me. Also all old original parts go with the car. All saved after engine rebuild. Other work not listed. Headlights assembly rebuilt, all 4 no disc rebuilt, aftermarket retro radio installed. (Looks like original with push buttons) Includes blue tooth, steer column redone so it’s tight, new power steering pump, a few rear universal joints replaced in independent rear suspension, new alternator. Just a few.

@Ruby – Would you please show pictures of undercarriage. Thanks ...

I am out of town now and won’t be near a lift. I will tell you under carriage is clean. No rust. Car had been treated with extreme care by both owners. Always garaged. Never even driven in any bad weather.
