The seller asked me to help with posting some pictures of the car and I am happy to oblige. With exception of one small detail, it is my kind of car...original and unmolested... I have enjoyed receiving, perusing and posting the pictures.

he plans to take more pictures including the data and vin plates and headliner etc. I love it when sellers are willing to take detailed pictures on request and give as good of a descrioption as possible. Although as we all know perceptions of condition vary from one person to another, but I think this seller is being as forthright possible.

I would love to hear the history of the car.

The only history I know for sure starts in 1982,19900m on the title. But Im going to have a title search done with the state.I know the owner owned it longer than the date on the title.The owner told me he bought the car for his wife from the buick dealer in Rantoul,Il. Im not sure if he was the 1st or 2nd ownwer. 215 miles since 1982 shows it sure hasnt been driven.

Got it from ClassicCarAutoParts.com in Grand Rapids,Mn, But the pakage slip says it came from Tank's Inc Monticello,IA , but it was sold to Gearhead Enterprises, Hudson IA and shipped to me. Figure that one out,lol It has a short nip and you have to cut the old filler neck off the old tank,and use a rubber sleeve that comes with it,or weld it.Whatever. Cost me $394 shp incl

I finally got the title back so its time to try a little harder to get rid of it. I really need to move the car,so make me an offer.
