Description

A head turning classic in great shape. This is a fun car for summer weekends or a daily driver for anyone fortunate enough to live in a warm climate. It has been a beloved part of our family for several years, but I am running out of space in the garage and have had to make a tough decision to sell it.
I bought this car in 2007 from the second owner. The entire car was restored about 15-20 years ago. It is in great shape - not show worthy, but not a lot of work required to get it there. I have tried to be as upfront as possible in the description below, so please interpret the highlighted defects accordingly.
The engine is a straight six and runs smooth and clean. The transmission is a three-speed manual column shift. The clutch has approx. 500 miles on it.
The body is solid with only two very small (1 in.) bubbles on the bottom corner of each door that I have noticed. There are no dents or visible scratches in the paint. No visible rust. The colour is "dusty rose", which is close to the original, but with a bit more metallic. All of the chrome is in excellent shape.
The upholstery is vinyl and could use an update as some of the seams are starting to crack. The top is vinyl and has a small tear in the drivers' side back corner. The hydraulic mechanism for the top has a leak, so I usually just pull the top up manually. A new top could be in order at some point, but not urgent.
Tires have tons of tread.
Vents, fans and radio all work well. Wipers are vacuum and have not worked since I bought the car (which hasn't been a problem). Windows go up an down easily, with the exception of the drivers' side back window, which needs to be gently pushed while rolling, but otherwise works fine.
Brakes word fine, with the exception of the parking brake which needs a new cable.
The car is located in Vancouver, Canada. I bought it in Tennessee, so importing back to the US should not be an issue.
