Wires are ALL ORIGINAL!The vehicle has been well preserved. It is not a perfect show car but it is a great looking driver that gets a lot of attention wherever you go.Most of these have been butchered up to one degree or another either under the hood or the dashboard for some late model radio. This is like a time capsule out of the late 70's. If you know about the LXXV you know they are very hard to find and even if you can find one it probably won't look like this one.DID I MENTION I HAVE THE ORIGINAL BUILD SHEET FOR THIS CAR!!!!I have records for all work done to this vehicle.

Did I mention the ORIGINAL Uniroyal spare tire from 1978 is in the back? the trunk carpet leather interior and all weather stripping is immaculate!!! There is a small crack on the arm rest panel on the drivers door otherwise no cracks ANYWHERE! NO stains. No dash scuffs. Back seat appears as though it has never been used! As with any 37 year old car there is mild paint checking but the patina is preserved and the car is only original once!

With the carcomes a BRAND new full STAINLESS STEEL EXHAUST SYSTEM made by WALKER and includes all pipes and clamps form the manifolds to the tailpipe. The vinyl trop is BRAND NEW and soft without a crack. The car is a time capsule and I am very sad tohave to sell it believe me. I value this car tremendously because it'sthe car my mom and dad had when I wasgrowing up buteventsin my life have forced me to sell some of my mostvaluedpossessions. This car will travel across the country today with not a single problem. You will freeze with the R-12 AC pumping out freezing cold air. New engine oil new transmission fluid radiator flush and coolant. Whoever buys this car and keeps it will have a lifetime of enjoyment.
