It has a restored paint & body that was professionally completed in the 90's yes it was a very nice job. Paint has held up remarkably well looks much more recent simply due to indoor covered storage. Two-Tone White w/Silver Gray the white is more to the Ivory color and there is slightly bluish hue in the gray that always gets compliments at all the cruise nights we have attended. The trim and stainless is good on the car. It has nice chrome. Glass is good. It has new Mastercraft radials all around with Steel wheels and factory full hubcaps. The interior upholstery has been all redone in matching two-tone Black w/Silver Gray high quality cloth insert and it shows beautifully. Headliner was redone prior however it needed a few patches put in due to a few small holes that developed over time. The frame chassis, floors and trunk are awesome rock solid.
