This completes his notes, all of the above is true and accurate. I would add the following; The bottom of the Tailgate has minor bubbles in the paint but, should be an easy fix. The rest of the body and paint are in excellent condition, with no signs of rust or imperfections, paint shines nice. Floor Pans are good and look factory. Exhaust System looks new. HEI Distributor looks new. Both Front and Rear Bumpers are in excellent condition, Chrome shines bright. New Four Core Aluminum Radiator. All the Glass is good, all windows and doors operate easily, no door sag. A/C does blow ice cold. The quality, workmanship and preservation of this vehicle is excellent. Just before his passing he purchased a complete stereo system, including built in rear panel speakers.
