Lap (seat) belts added about a year agoThis is a very nicely preserved classic that while imperfect, it extremely appealing. I generally only move the car for private shows and events, where the host is expecting a lineup of finer cars for their clients. The car is never left unattended and is garage stored when not in service.
The car drives remarkably for its age! I easily cruise the interstate at 65-70 mph without any hesitation, other than the expression of peoples faces when you pass them in a 62 year old classic.
