This one also has the very desirable, optional, functioning cowl induction hood with hood pins. The rare factory Classic white paint has been expertly applied and is very smooth and slick, I never see a white one. It has been sanded and polished to a glossy and reflective finish. Looking down the side of the body is 100% laser straight. All the panels are properly aligned, and the gaps are good. The long heavy doors close very easily and don't sag. It has a black vinyl top from the factory that is a pleasant contrast to the stark white paint as are the black racing stripes. All the glass has been replaced. All the trim has a lustrous shine and the rechromed bumpers shine like jewelry. It's equipped with SS rims that are wrapped in reproduction Goodyear Polyglass 14"" tires.
