The interior was intact but a bit musty from being closed up. Some of the emblems on the dash buttons are worn off. The car is suffering from the ignition switch issue, so the dash lights kept pulling the battery down. The previous owner must have disconnected the battery to charge it because the stereo is locked.

The stitching on the top was dry rotting and the rear window was rigid. I noticed one rock ding on the bonnet that a paintless dent repair guy should be able to fix. After that, a good detailer ought to be able to make it look better.

I'll try to get some more pictures the next time I am over there to visit. I was surprised these came out since it was in in the garage. We pushed it outside and got the bonnet open to jump it off, but I forgot to take more pictures.

Sounds mostly cosmetic and basic maintenance---Enjoy the Ride!
