Keeping the engine cool is a new radiator, and keeping the driver warm is a new heater core. All hoses, and lines are new throughout the engine compartment, and the motor is finished in the proper 1970 color.
The body of the car was a rust free example and features all original metal throughout. All metal surfaces are highly detailed including the immaculate undercarriage, the super clean trunk, and the sparkling engine compartment. All trim on the exterior is either re-chromed, or restored, including the often neglected vent windows. The top is in excellent condition, and the car comes with a matching boot.
