    It does appear to be pristine. I don't think I could justify shelling out 15k for it though.

    for 15K it should at least include the driver's side door molding

    Waiting for that. Didn't have to wait long :) They might have it, my bigger concern might by why it's off...

    Yeah, I looked at that; - my 74 had similar moldings, they just fell off one winter day. They were pretty cheap after all.

    In 74 would they be held on by a clips or stick one ?

    Those ones in 74 were glued on strips of vinyl. They used cheap glue or there wasn't enough. Used to see a lot of cars from that era missing one strip or one was in the process of falling off.

    Great find! Interior is immaculate, engine looks clean as can be, doors are straight, trunk is nearly perfect, the wires look nice and clean. Paint looks good. Nice storage conditions.

    You can buy the door moulding for cheap on ebay. Who cares?

    Price looks spot on to me. If the engine/trans runs like the rest of the car looks it's a great buy.

    Downsides are in the options - no AC, smog pump, looks like no power brakes. I have power brakes on mine and it's still a bit of a boat..can't imagine driving with any spirit without them

    I love this car. Price is high but originality is an up and coming commodity. 350- 2 barrel or not.

    Judging by the spare, she is/was a painted steel wheel, dog dish cap car.
    they mentioned original wheels will be included in sale.

    They’re actually dryer sheets for rodent control.
