SOLD 11/23/2012

This car has been owned by the current owner for the last 20 years. When he purchased the car it was a solid and low mileage original car. About three years ago, the body was completely stripped down to bare metal and the car was given a thorough cosmetic restoration. The body was repaired as needed using only metal and lead-no fillers were used. The car was repainted in its original dark maroon color which was carefully matched to the original paint. The car has an excellent overall fit and finish with even door, hood and trunk gaps, excellent paint, etc. The chrome is very nice throughout and was replaced as needed and the stainless was also removed and restored. The interior was completely and professionally restored in the period correct Chrysler Highlander style with matching carpets, headliner, side panels, etc. The interior is absolutely beautiful in this car and today remains in like new condition showing no signs of wear. The dashboard was restored and still retains all of its original gauges which are in excellent condition although the gas gauge does not appear to be accurate. The car shows approximately 85,000 miles on it which are believed to be original. About a year ago, the speedometer stopped working and the cable still needs to be replaced. Recently, the cylinder head was removed and a new gasket was installed and a valve job was given to the car. The fuel system, carburetor, ignition, and cooling systems were recently rebuilt as needed and all work as they should. The car starts easily, idles well, accelerates smoothly and does not smoke or overheat. The transmission and clutch are smooth and quiet and the brakes and steering are tight and responsive. The tires were replaced within the last 7 years and remain in excellent condition. The engine bay shows signs of use but is generally clean and the underneath of the car is in similar condition. It is fine as is but could easily be detailed to bring the car to the next level. The glass is excellent with the exception of a small crack on the passenger side door glass. The car has several accessories including radio (not working), heater, dual Mopar script fog lights, dual spot lights, turn signals accessory horn and a Fulton sun visor. The accessory fog and spot lights still need to be wired. Included with the car is a photo album showing the restoration. The price is 18,500.00. The VIN number is 70624608 and the car retains its original VIN and trim tags. This is a great looking and great running car that is ready to use and enjoy. The car has a clear and current Michigan title and is located near Ann Arbor, Michigan.
