Chrome on bumpers ok but front grill worn. All lights and signals work as do windows. All locks work with trunk key. Horn works. All glass good.

Dual exhaust all new to chrome tips in rear. Speedometer restored, works great. Gas gauge and oil prescription works fine. As well as fuel.
Paint about 20?years old and is passable with some blemishes.
Everything considered it’s not your average shoe box . I just couldn’t see restoring a flathead motor. Wanted a reliable motor. About 200 HP ( 100 more than flathead)
